Using printer with network switch

Network works fine until I connect the printer to network unmanaged switch. Then I can't print. Also, I can not ping the printer when connected to switch. Obtaining IP address and DHCP are set to auto.

How do I resolve this issue?

Thanks to all who help.

Most home routers are also switches, so it should work without any fuss if it's truly an unmanaged switch. Have you tried a different port on the switch? What is the switch model?

You can try clearing the ARP cache on the computer and try pinging it again while plugged into the switch

I deleted the arpcache which did not help.
Then I switched the printer cable and the router cable to different ports on switch and printer works. :D:D:D

Thanks, Neemobeer

Sounded like you had a semi-proprietary switch (or the cable was not set in all the way and not connecting to the contacts)..

Glad it worked out...

Cheers!
