Small problem re wifi print with plusnet router.

OK, the details:

Epson PX720WD.

Plusnet Hub 1

Printer worked PERFECTLY on BT HUb 3

Current situation:

Printer prints BUT..

A] I have to go to the printer and re-enter the SSID and password each set of prints (meaning: once done it will print all after that until laptop is switched off again and printer goes into sleepy-byes)

B] Printing is almost ceased when downloading - e.g, if I'm downloading a *cough* movie and try to print it won t print until I pause/stop the download.

I've tried changing the channel from auto to 1 or 11, It was on Auto - 6 before = no luck.

The odd thing - even when the printer isn't responding to print commands I can still connect via the browser to http://192.168.1.71/ (printer IP) BUT - ALL of the problems started with the PNet hub, on the BT hub 3 it was perfect.

Any ideas?

Re: Small problem re wifi print with plusnet router.

Additional: I have tried WPS - it sets up and saves me having to re-enter the SSID and password every time... but it doesn't stay (the SSID and password are still in the printer but the Hub1 doesn;t see it.
