I have a small home network: laptop, Linksys WAG160n router, and Epson
SX600F wireless printer.
I rarely turn off my laptop (just shut the lid and put it to sleep) and
never turn off the printer or the router (unless I'm going away).
At least two or three times a week, however, I 'lose' the printer from the
network and the only way I can get it back is by re-booting the router.
Turning the printer off and back on does not help. The printer is in the
same room as the router and so signal strength is not an issue.
So why does the printer keep vanishing from the network?
