Windows 7: Network Printer goes Offline

15 Apr 2011   #1

Windows 7 32-bit
Network Printer goes Offline

We have difficulties keeping our network printers online. In order for a window 7 machine to print to our Toshiba e-studio we have to give it a static IP address in the same segment as the static IP address for the Toshiba e-studio. But none of the XP machines have any problems printing at all. XP can have any IP address and print. Window 7 has to have a static IP address to print (all in the same segment). We have reinstalled drivers, updated firmware, uninstalled/reinstalled printers. Still get the same problem. It will work for a few days and just drop and have to re do the steps again every few days. Please advise.
