  • Changed Router now Wireless printer will not connect

    Hi have changed my router to a new Netgear DG834g v5 and I have setup the wireless to use WPA and I have connected all the devices in the house to the wireless without any problems.

    The printer I have is a Brother DCP-585CW and it would connect and print but then would drop the connection.

    I have tried to join the printer to the wireless from the printer by supplying the wireless key and selecting the SSID.

    I have tried setting the printer to DHCP and Static but still will not connect

    I have also tried to use the wireless LAN setup utility that came with the Printer and it sometimes finds the printer then it tried to find a network and says communication error and cancels????

    Its strange that all the pc's in the house are connected and work fine but the printer will not work.

    Any Ideas?
