Router Drops Connection to Wireless Printer

I have a Netgear router and an Epson wirelss printer. I reserved the IP address in the modem (192.168.1.10) and the printer will print fine for a while then drops the connection to the printer. I have to go into the LAN settings and hit apply again to restore the connection to the printer. This happens randomly.

Re: Router Drops Connection to Wireless Printer

What I tried so far, which I don't know if it would have worked, was to set the printer static to 192.168.1.10 which is the printer IP. Then I went into the router to set the address reserve with that IP and MAC address which was successful. After setting this, however, I was unable to use the Google Cloud print any longer. After I set the printer back to auto instead of static on the IP address Google Cloud print worked again.

What do I do to get Google Cloud Print to work when my printer is set to a static IP?

Re: Router Drops Connection to Wireless Printer

Also, when the printer is set to DHCP and stops printing, all I have to do is log into the router and go to the reservation table and ,without changing any settings, hit apply it will start working again right away.

The only wireless connection that is having issues is the printer. We have a laptop, a Wii, and a DirecTV that connects to the network, and they are all ok and not having issues.

put static IP OUTSIDE of your DHCP range on printer side instead for any address reservation issues

Re: Router Drops Connection to Wireless Printer

Also, when I set it to static it doesn't allow my Epson email to print option to function as well. This is where to can send a print to the printer via email. Can I set something up in the printer:
DNS/Proxy Setup

Configure DNS/Proxy settings?
