RAX 40 - FIrmware Update

My router got a firmware update last month.  V1.0.4.102_1.0.1.

The router has been restarted.

 

My issue that I bought a wireless printer, got it setup on my wireless SSID.

Since the firmware update, The printer is connecting to a SSID that has been disabled and deleted.  The awesome part is that my router configuration does not show any of my previous SSID and only has an SSID broadcast of "Netgear53" and a random password that it generated.

 

But yet my other devices, phone, TV, chromebook etc are connecting to my "old" SSID.

 

Anyone expereince anything like this?

Freaky. Maybe you need to hire an exorcist.

 

Does the anonymous printer have a "reset"option?

 

The usual way to fix wifi printers is to find the printer maker's utility, the software that runs on your operating system. Then use that to connect the printer to the wifi.

 

The router just broadcasts wifi. It is then down to the printer to play ball. There isn't much that you can do on a router, beyond fixing it to a particular IP address, that affects what the printer gets up to.

 

Where possible, using the WPS feature can simplify things.
