Just bought a new HP 6978 All in One printer. In trying to connect it to my wireless network, the computer (Mac running OSX 10.10.5) will see it's there, connect for a bit, then drop it a few minutes later. We had the same problem with our previous printer and thought that since that one was old, it was just acting wonky. We really didn't stat having issues until we switched over to TW for our internet.
Any ideas? I've installed, re-installed, uninstalled, lather, rinse, repeat more than a few times. I'm just not sure where to fo from here.
We are on an Arris TG1672G, if that helps at all.
Solved! Go to Solution.
set the routers DHCP start to 192.168.1.100 and then set the printer for a STATIC IP of 192.168.1.99
If that is unstable try and use an ethernet cable connection
Wireless is BASICLY USELESS in any dense housing.
