    We have quite the set up here..
    Three computers and a HP 5SI printer connected to a pro curve switch box. We use Synergy so that we can use one mouse and keyboard with all three computers. I just installed a Belkin N+ router, so that I can use my laptop thru the wifi. Had problems getting the computers to connect to the internet, finally got that to work, then it took three hours to get Synergy to work again. Now the computer can not "see" the printer. We just put Win 7 on the main computer and I had the printer working before I installed the router. I even tried taking it off the switch box and hooking it directly to the router and the router don't see it either. I am just lost for a solution.
    Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
    Thanks
    Jamie

    Well after a little more looking it finally hit me the IP address on the printer was not within the range that the router required and I couldnt change that so I found out how to change the IP address manually on the printer... and how it works... YAY!!! :eek:
