Re: Laserjet disconnects SBG900

Question: Why are you manually turning the printer on? Can't you leave it on and let the printer just spool the print jobs on demand?

If for some reason you can't leave it on or it's by choice, try not assigning it a static IP. Try letting the printer just pull one from the pool.


The only way I found for windows to print on it is to assign a static IP address. If I try using the printer name or dhcp it doesn't prints.

Anyway I gave your suggestion a chance, changed to DHCP and it got a new ip address, but when turned on again the modem diconnected wireless clientes again.

Is it only the wireless clients that are being disconnected, or is the entire SBG900 rebooting? If it is the latter situation, most likely the AC line voltage is dropping due to the current being drawn by the printer when it is first turned on.

Solutions would include powering the modem from another circuit that does not feed the printer or running the modem from a UPS (since the SBG900 draws hardly any current, a small, inexpensive UPS would be sufficient).
