Default Printer won''t connect to Wifi

Samsung laptop, Windows 7. Epson XP-412 printer.

Printer printout:

Network is working correctly.

"A router/access point channel conflict has been detected.
"If you have trouble printing or scanning, improve your wireless network environment"

What does this mean and how can I resolve it?

Bill.

You could try rebooting the router, open a command prompt and enter ipconfig /release and then ipconfig /renew or assign the printer with a static IP address outside of the DHCP range in the router - take you pick, but the latter won't cause a conflict.

Thank you Cantrel (again) for your prompt response.

I continued seeking a solution after posting and fixed it by installing new drivers.

Bill.

For the printer ?

When you get a channel conflict, it is usually because the router's DHCP assigns the same IP address to two devices or can occur when say a computer has been woken from hibernation, where the computer can hang onto its previous assigned IP address.
