Work Center 6505 connected to wireless print solutions adaptor: suddenly stopped printing

Hi! 

 

The wireless adaptor was working well, but suddenly it stopped working and is now flashing the Amber coded light signal for: No WLAN link is available.

 

I was trying to go to the web interface for the wpsa, or the printer, but when I try to go to the ports I think those are at, I  just get a "This site can't be reached page"

 

What's a good next step for figuring out what's wrong?

 

Thanks so much!

Unplug it, move it near the wifi access point and turn it back on, if you get connection, troubleshoot.

If it doesn't respond o the IP you put it on, make sure it didn't get reset (this would mean it is back on 192.168.0.1)

If it doesn't show up as a wifi access point (WPSA-XXXX) and you can't hit it on any IP address reset it manually with a pen or pencil by holding down the reset button in the little hole here for 30 seconds.

So we unplugged it, and replugged it in and it does show the green light for connection now. It doesn't respond to its usual IP, or the original reset one, and WPSA isn't showing up. So probably best to reset it even though it's green now?

 

Thanks Joe!

Green doesn't matter if you can't print to it or get the IP it is using.

Reset and start over is what I would do.
