Server is running Windows home server
Computer A is running Windows 7 Pro
Computer B is running Windows 7 Pro
Laptop is running XP (about to upgrade to Win 7 Home)
Laptop B is an eeepc with Linux
The printers are a Samsung CLP-3.50N Colour Laser and A Xerox Phaser 3200 MFP
Currently the printers are both connected to the Modem Router (which is a Linksys WAG160N), but I have tried attaching them to the Server via USB (not the best option because the xerox scanner doesn't work over the USB)
I haven't been able to set a static IP address in the router (apparently the manufacturer dropped the "Known device" option from this Modem for some reason.)
It seems every time the computer restarts it assigns a different IP to the printers and you have to delete the old printer and add a new one to make them work. Both printers are network printers and worked perfectly under Vista and XP ?
My inclination is to just through the modem in the bin and buy a new one, but perhaps someone has a less costly idea to work around this problem
Hope someone has a few ideas
