Hi Rob,
\015\012
\015\012The situation seems very vague, First off, you have to identify if you're using this for a corporate environtment usage or are you using this on a home network? Next question would be,if the network you're connecting the dell wireless adaptor to has reserved the ip address for the allocation of the printer. If not, then there are a few possible reasons for your situation:
\015\012
\015\012
    \015\012
  • IP Mismatch. If you're connecting the dell wireless adaptor directly to your printer and network, ensure that the IP ADDRESS of the printer is matching that of the ipaddress of the printer driver in your computer (Control panel>Printers>Right click printer>properties)

  • Driver Error. Download the latest driver for your model printer and install it on your notebook. Once this is done, make sure you are able to "see" the printer by printing a test page.

  • Not conencted to the netwrok. Sometimes, this happens when you're not connected to the netwrok (but you think you are just casue you see a "connected" icon). Make sure you're conencitng to YOUR network everytime you reboot and not mooch on some other netwrok.
\015\012Hope this helped. Please do let me know how it goes. Thank you.
