Calling all IT geeks...I need help! I have an Epson 3640 printer that's on my network via wifi. It has worked flawlessly with laptops, tablets and phones...until yesterday. I installed a new router yesterday and now I can't print from my laptop, which is what I used to install the router. I'm definitely in contact with the printer...I can scan via wifi and run utilities that show me ink levels, etc. Every other device in the house works fine, still, too. When I try to print, the job seems to get stuck in the spooler and eventually return an error. I have cleared the spooler both via the print manager and by going to the folder and deleting the spooler file manually. Still no go. It's almost as if win7 uses a separate spooler file for wifi....? The one thing I suspect is this...when I was setting up the router, I had my laptop connected to it via an ethernet cable. Early in the setup process I was asked if I wanted to print out the new router settings. When I tried that, it was obvious I wasn't connected to the network yet, so I cancelled the print job. I'm wondering if that left something bogus somewhere. Other than that, I got nothing but frustration. Anybody have any idea what could be going on, or how wifi printing in Win7 works?
