Manual IP Issue With the New XB7 Router?
The new Xb7 has well documented issues with slightly older printers, they don't work on the XB7 wirelessly, you can see some of the threads I linked about this issue below the images. The Xb6 router works just fine though before we upgraded, and people end up having to switch back to the Xb6. My printer is 7 years old, it should be compatible.
So I went into the XB7 gateway (10.0.0.1), separated the 2.4 and 5ghz bands, then disabled the 5ghz band. Reset the printer and gateway, Connected the printer to the 2.4 ghz band only.... Still having an IP conflict issue. Epson WF-845. The printer is able to find and connect to the network, and shows up as a connected device in the Xb7 gateway, but it has an IP conflict issue. Its unable to communicate, not useable, cant print.
I then changed the Epson printer from DHCP to Reserved IP within the XB7 gateway, and made it 10.0.0.212 Then went into my printer software and manually set the same IP. Still does not work. Any ideas? Is the gateway info wrong? Any ideas?
