Re: Dropping network connection to printer

To what is the printer physically attached? eg... directly to the Desktop?
To the network via a LAN cable? To the network wirelessly?

To what is your notebook attached when it's not attached to the home
wireless network? To a work domain? To other wireless networks?

Need more info to diagnose.
