Bell internet modem
several PCs (Windows XP)
Sharp MX printer/scanner/fax
The printer/fax/scanner and the PCs are all connected to the D-Link router via ethernet cables.
HOw it happened:
Recently everything was working fine and dandy, until people were having trouble connecting to the wireless routers internet. I decided to reboot the router. Upon rebooting the router and then powercycling the Bell modem, none of the PCs had internet access.
They were still connected to the LAN but the WAN was out.
To resolve this, on EACH computer I went to the network connection properties and changed the Internet Protocol TCP/IP properties. Originally each computer was set to use a particular IP address but I changed the settings to obtain and IP address automatically as well as obtain DNS server server automatically.
Once this was done on each PC, the internet was back and running.
That is when the printer no longer printed from files on the PCs.
What went wrong?
How can I print again?
