just swapped out my HP2605DN network printer with a Xerox 8570DN network printer. There were never any issues printing on the HP printer from laptop PCs (wireless) or desktop PCs (wired). I can print to the Xerox across the network fine from any desktop but not from the laptops. The IP address of the printer is 192.168.0.202 and neither laptop (XP and Win7/64) can PING this printer wirelessly but they can if connected via a cat 5 cable. Sometimes, the connection to the XP laptop wakes up but there seems to be no consistency to this. I have a print server at 192.168.0.201 and both laptops and PING and print to this wirelessly so I am fairly sure the network is OK, at least superficially. BTW I am using a NetGear DG834v5 router.
I called Xerox about this yesterday and they told me the problem was with my network. I don't think it is (a) because the set-up worked with the HP and (b) I can print to other networked printers but am a network newbie so any assistance would be really appreciated
Thanks in advance!
