Internet disconnection while printing

  Big Nate 13:22 17 Sep 2006

Almost every time I am printing while on-line I become disconnected from the internet. I don't recall this happening in the past, it just recently started within the past few months. Any, and all responses are greatly appreciated!

Do you connect to the internet via USB modem ?
Is your printer USB printer?

I'm wondering if it is power related, I know some of the old Alcatel 'frog' ADSL modems could have issues with USB power as they didn't have their own power supply. I had problems with one that started happening after a period of time.

You could try a powered USB hub to plug the printer or modem (or perhaps both) into.

As above, ensure the printer is on a seperate USB hub to the modem.

Could be be what silverous say's, how many usb devices do you have running?
