Qirky, random local network access.



Good morning.

I've been experiencing a quirky, random network access issue in Linux
only with both F8 and F9.

The network looks like this

- Linksys WRT54gs wireless router, connects to the Internet via a cable
modem
- Dell 1720N networked printer, plugs into a router port
- Linksys print server, connects an HP all in one to the wireless router
- Windows laptop, connects to the wireless router via wifi
- Linux laptop, connects to the wireless router via wifi

Most days this setup works well.  No problems.   

However, every once ina while I get a "Printer may not be connected"
error when I try to print to either printer.

If I then open a browser on the Linux machine and enter the IP for the
router, I cannot log into it. (http://192.168.1.1) It gives me the login
screen and I put in the right username and password, but it rejects me.

If I open a browser on the Linux machine and enter the IP for the laser
printer, it tells me it isn't available.  (http://192.168.1.100)

It doesn't matter if the browser is Konqueror or Firefox, neither one
works.

However, if I do this on the Windows machine, both of these actions work
and I can also print. 

At the same time, I can also access the Internet and such just fine.

Any ideas on how to troubleshoot or fix this ?

Thanks
