Windows 10: Printers working fine until update to 10074 Solved

    Printers working fine until update to 10074


    I had two printers hooked up in wireless mode, a Samsung ML-2525W and a Brother inkjet MFC_J870DW. Both were working fine until the recent update and both dropped off the network.
    I reinstalled the driver for the Samsung and providing I have it wired to a USB port on the computer it works fine, I tried my usual method I have written down to reconnect wireless but to no avail. It is odd but it shows up in the router as it is connected but when I go through the connect routine it reports "not connected"
    I havnt tried the Brother printer yet.
    Its odd.

    After a nights sleep and a few reboots both printers are now back online.

    Tacit, I don't know about the Samsung, but "Run as Administrator" is your friend when installing your MFC-J8xxDW printer as wireless.
