Overall the printer works, but after several hours it "forgets" the settings for the wireless router. I have a dedicated IP of 192.168.1.5 for the MAC address of the printer with the router. Signal is super strong in this location and the printer detects the wireless network, I just have to set it up every time, go to the router, press the button for 3 seconds, then everything is fine again until several hours later. I read instructions elsewhere to set the ink level detection to only work while printing and to turn off the scan to computer, but to no avail.
Does anybody have a similar problem and has a solution?

O.k., I read elsewhere about another printer that the static IP address needs to be outside of the DHCP range. My printer's IP was inside that range. So I made it so that the IP range and the static printer IP don't overlap, and that seems to have done the trick. Over 24 hours without losing connection.
