    I recently took over a network of 8 computers run by Windows 2008 server rs foundation. The main router failed and I had to install another one. Once it was connected I realized the Xerox workstation on the network was not printing. It is connected and working but does not seem to be communicating with the rest of the network so I can't print from any of the computers or scan pictures to the computers from it. The workstation has its own IP address and it has been suggested that the DHCP server is not designating the ip address correctly through the new router. I am not versed on 2008 server yet and need help figuring this out.

    Have you been into the routers home page and configured it?
    You will need to either look on the bottom of the router for the home page and enter your username and password (usually 192.168.1.1 and username and password)
    from here, you need to either set the router as a DHCP server (where the router dishes the IP addresses out)

    I take it that the Xerox device is networked, and connected to the network and not a single PC or print server?
