I have googled and it seems that it happens to other people to but I can't find a permanent solution.
I can be printing fine, 5 minutes later go to print something else and it says that the printer is offline and won't connect. the only way I have found round it is deleting the printer and adding it again. There seems to be no rhyme nor reason to it. Printed away fine 2 or three documents earlier then opened something else to print and it happened again.
Anyone got any idea what is happening and if there is a proper solution to it?

I'be had similar problems on a PC and the solution for me was to give the printer a fixed IP address.
