New printer (Xerox 560 printer). Printed fine since last week's install.
Then this morning, Nada.
I saw that the green light on the nic was off. So I tried changing the NIC from Auto to full duplex and the light came back on, but no one could print. Nada.
We still have the old printer. So I disconnected the new printer, and used the network cable for the old printer which promptly resumed printing at our requests.
Our new printer has its own web server (CentreWare) and so I connected to the printer using the cross-over cable and sure enough I could print and connect to its webpage etc.
I reconnected it to the network.
Then I tried to ping the printer from different machines. Nada.
(All on the same subnet, printer has the same IP as ever, and there's no security in the printer to prevent ping).
I tried turning off all security in the router. Nada.
Tried changing the i.p. address to a different one. Nada.
I need a Ninja.
