First off I want to thank you for responding - All of you.
Sorry I didn’t give all the info, this is what I have done and tried:
1 - UPnP is on
2- The printer is not connected to any computer
3 - The printer is a stand alone ethernet network printer (has its own NIC card) with its own MAC address
4- Print drivers have been installed on all computers connting to the network.
5 - All computers are Win 7 OS
6 - The printers MAC address is in the n900’s IP log of found MAC addresses and has been given an IP address by n900
7 - I did not created any work groups on my network, it is peer-to-peer
8 - the printer does has a port for a printer to USB cable bu no USB port
9 - The printer is located on a different floor then where the n900 router is located which is in my basement where wiring for my house Cat5 wires have been run to a control panel of RJ45 connectors.
I have not seen (nor find in the emanual) how to put a static IP on the n900 router. 1. Can I just add an address to the router log page of IP address?
- And will that make that address a static address?
Sorry if I seemed a little kurt in the other responces - I am a little more than just frustrated, I have a work at home business and not having a printer is about killing me. I set up my old router back up just so I can do my printing.
