    Are they both connecting to the router OK? I think something I'd try is turning the router off and then back on again.

    I did the following and both are working

    So the first thing you should do is turn off your computer and turn off the printer. Go ahead and restart the wireless router by unplugging it and then waiting 30 seconds and then plugging it back in. Then switch on your computer and then switch on the printer. Let everything connect and then try to print again.

    The problem now is I only have the first and third LED's lit up on my powerline adapters and the laptop seems much slower.How do I get all three LED's lit
    Thanks for the replies by the way much appreciated

    Windows 8.1 not my favourite OS.

    Powerline adapters never been a fan of them,some are better than others, don't know what model you have, but I tried some & had a lot of hassle, ended up running Cat 5e for better speed & reliability.
