  • Network printer slow to print

    I have a network printer that sometimes prints and sometime doesnt, if you restart it, it prints everytime.

    I have found that its due to the network, as printer is more than 100 metres away from the server, the pings are slow and intermittent.

    doesn anyone know of a work around? except installing fibre optic cable or moving the printer near to the server!

    Thanks

      When you say that it's more than 100 meters away from the server do you mean that the Ethernet segment it's connected to is more than 100 meters?

      You could put a repeater (switch) between the two.
