    Printer Dell v313w
    Vista Business
    Router Linksys


    I have two routers connected together,

    Main Router Linksys E4200, IP Address set to 192.168.2.XXX
    Second Router Cisco 800 Series IP Address set to 0.0.00

    Cable Modem --->Linksys E4200--->Personal Printer Deskptop, Wireless Devices---> Cisco 800 Series--->Work Laptop Docking Station, and Work Printer


    I believe my problem is my personal Dell Printer V313w was preloaded a default IP address. I believe my personal network is not detecting the 192.168.1.XXX the printer is on being the router is set too 192.168.2.XXX. Additional my second router which is work related does not have a USB port for me to use either.

    My question is, is there a way to get my printer to detect my network which is connected via USB to my router?


    Thanks
    Dennis

    You need to switch off DHCP addressing on the second router.

    Also, I would log into the printer's web GUI and assign a static IP address. Have that IP address reserved for your printer (static as well) in the main router's setup page as well.
