RBR750 and RBS750 Printer Connectivity Issue


RBR750 and RBS750 Printer Connectivity Issue

Hi there,


I have various models of printers in my office including Canon and Brother.

A lot of our computers are having issue connecting to the printers in the network, 80% of the time I have to remove the printer and reconnect for it to print out paper or scan. 


Is there a fix for this?

Bit thin on detail there. Which printers? How are they connected to the network? Wired or USB?


I assume wifi, but you have posted in the Nighthawk wifi section, rather than the Orbi zone, so who knows if there is one of them in there somewhere?


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.


While many questions about routers are generic and could be answered anywhere, some things need specialist knowledge.

You might get more help, and find earlier questions and answers specific to your device, in the appropriate section for your hardware. That's probably here:

Orbi - NETGEAR Communities

Orbi WiFi 6 (AX) and WiFi 6E (AXE) - NETGEAR Communities

In the meantime you could visit the support pages:

Support | NETGEAR

Feed in your model number and check the documentation for your hardware. Look at the label on the device for the model number.

Check for various troubleshooting tips.

You may have done this already. I can't tell from your message.

I mention it because Netgear stopped supplying printed manuals and CD versions some years ago and people sometimes miss the downloads.
