Question: printer connections lost/found/lost/found
my wireless network is good. Have a HP LaserJet Pro 200 & a Samsung C1860FW
OS is 10.13.1
it started with the HP, everything was fine for years, then around October it took forever to print a page. I deleted printer, reinstalled printer, deleted again, reinstalled again, then bought a new router. Now I have a new printer, Samsung C1860 out of frustration.
installed software & the samsung is better. BUT.
I open the print que when printing, and also the static IP for the printer 192.168.3.103
Print que says printer offline, I check, It isn't, even the samsung app shows a connection
When I hit print, if I do not wake the printer 1st, I end up having to delete the print que & start over again. Printing multiple documents requires multiple pause & resume operations to get it all through.
HP Printing is still slow, like 15 minutes for a page, spooling forever.
The router is located 5' from PC & 2' from printers.
