Epson Artisan 810 wireless not found by win

November 12, 2011 at 14:08:32
Specs: Windows 7, 6gb
Win 7 computer wired into D-Link 615 router (address of 192.168.1.1). Set win 7 computer static address at 192.168.0.100. Then set Epson wireless at 192.168.0.103. DCHP IP address range 192.168.0.105 to 192.168.0.199.
Computer finds printer and everything works fine for about a week. Then computer can no longer ping the printer. I am sure the problem is something simple, but I am at a loss. Have spend hours trying to figure out what I am doing wrong.
Please help this 72 year old lady out.

Why two different subnets? If the router is 192.168.1.1, why is there a zero in the third octect of the other IP addresses? In other words, the DHCP range should be 192.168.1.105-109, not 0.105-109.

Is that clear?

Ys it is clear. I erred. Router is 192.168.0.1, so I reset the printer to static 192.168.0.2. Then I uninstalled the drivers utilities, and went to Epson and found new updated softeware had just been posted. Installed and computer found printer and it is working now. I don't know what will happen when I shut down and reboot tomarrow. Keeping my fingers crossed.
Thanks for your "good eye" and your suggestion.
