I am using a Edimax print server PS1206MF connected by cable to the network router - and shared wirelessly by it to two computers.
The IP address of the unit is shown on the print server, however the day it changed itself to another number - do you know why ?
One of the PCs (both running XP Home/Pro) seemed to have updated itself to the new address, but the other didn't - so it couldn't see the printer. The one which updated itself could have been because the user clicked on "Refresh", but she doesn't remembering clicking on anything.
I clicked Refresh on the other computer's Edimax software and now it is showing the new IP address it is working fine.
However, I need to know why it happened, and how I can prevent it happening again in the future.
