Hi, thank you for contacting My name is Russell. I will do my best to provide the right answer to your question.

I think we can get the Xerox printing working again. It will take some attention to details though.

First: is the printer a networked printer? if so, is it networked by a network cable, or by wireless connection?

Second: have you had any changes in your network lately? swapped out a hub, modem, or router box ?

That's rather what I suspected it was, an addressing problem. Good to hear that, Joe.
