My network consist of an iMac (OS 10.6.8) with ethernet to the wireless router which also has the Samsung printer (SCX-3405FW) plugged in. Recently bought the printer and installed it. Tested it with the iMac and the HP laptop (DV6700US) (Windows 7 Home Premium) and all is fine for about two weeks. The other day went to print from laptop and printer queue showed "Error - Printer offline." Went to the iMac and it printed fine. All this time I am getting internet connection via the network. I then realized that the HP was not showing up on the network.
Checking the HP network shows the HP....modem........internet. Map all shows the iMac and the printer, at the bottom, but says "the following discovered devices can not be placed in the map"
No changes, updates, additions nor deletions of software have been made since the install of the printer. Why all of a sudden and how do I fix it. I know nothing about Windows (it's the wife's laptop), so talk slow please.
