I successfully configured the printer server in my network.

Initially, the printer status page showed just "offline".

Then suddenly, the status went online - and I could print some test pages.

Yet, after a power reset, the status showed "offline" again and whatever I'm trying: it stays "offline".


I ruled out a cable issue. Also, the printer is okay. For sure, it's listed compatible.


Any idea what's going on here?

Is there some kind WPS510U setup feature to pay attention to?
