Okay all that does is Reset some Settings so we can start

Have you tried to Reinstall the Printer? This maybe because the Printer is still looking for your old router

I just worked on a system where Network access became painfully slow for opening Browser pages, downloading files, etc.

I reset the Router, and access was still slow.
I ran the FlushDNS.bat file (on multiple Win 7 machines), and that fixed the issue.

Thanks Shadowjk for the BAT file, I'd rep you if I could for this.

Note: I added a pause statement before the shutdown, so I could review what happened before the CMD window closed...

Thanks again and nice work
