    Question IP addresses dropping out.

    Could anyone explain why an IP address suddenly drops out.
    The address in question has a printer on it. One minute it was working next nothing.
    Try to connect with it via IE and nothing.
    Try pinging it and constantly times out.

    Cancel this I think I found the error.

    It seems the Network card in the printer is not working.

    HI

    Prints should have a fixed ip address or a reservation in the dhcp. If its not fixed it could receive a different ip from the dhcp server when it expires. This happens a lot after holidays.

    The other thing is it might be a swich is faulty or being turned off like I had at one school to plug a fan in.
