    I bought a Canon MX870 printer. It works great via wireless, however after say, 5 or 6 pages or print jobs, it "pauses" and stops printing. I go into the print menu on System preferences to resume printing, but this does nothing. Rebooting the router usually does the trick, and printing will resume shortly after doing that. I emailed Canon and they said to assign a static IP for the printer. I have a Belkin router, and I cannot figure out how to do this. Can anyone help with this issue?

    I would go to system preferences and click on print and faxes. Select the mx870 and see if there is an option for static ip. I have yet to set up a wireless printer so I am not positive where the static ip option would be. Hope this helps.
