How to get printer back online

  ponytail 14:37 09 Nov 2015

My router packed up and my provider Talktalk has arranged for a replacement to be sent but will not get it untill the weekend.My son has lent me a router and it took ages to get it all working.But now my printer is showing as offline and have tried a few things but no luck.It is a Brother Printer Model Number DCP-J315 W The router is a Billion BIPAC 8800NL Dont really want to uninstall it and then reinstall it if I dont have to. Any advice appreciated

Reinstall it if it is connected via the network. It has most likely been issued with a different IP by the new router.

I uninstalled it and then reinstalled it and it is now fine
