Here is my equipment:

Wireless Printer: Epson Stylus sx515w
Wireless Router: Linksys wag160n

I've set the printer to pick up a DHCP address. But everytime time I turn it on, it won't repsond to ping requests until I restart the router. Sucks to restart the router everytime I want to print.

Things I've tried:

1. I can't give it a static IP as my router doesn't allow that functionality. So I've assigned the printer an IP outside of my DHCP range. This gives the same problem - have to restart router everytime I want to print.
2. Tried assigning the printer a static IP through the printer menu within my DHCP range.

I'm stuck for ideas. Help anyone?
