basic Office Network 2 machines BT broadband. netgear wired router RJ45 cables.MAchine 1 ( main machine) Win ME (yes I know)Pentium 4 1500 512mb ram 40gb hdd yadda yadda yadda, Bog standard HP deskjet printer, Office 2000Machine 2 ( XP SP2, 512mb Ram Athlon 64 3000 CPU. 160gb HDD, Office 2003machine 1, connects to the net fine, prints to local printer fine and can see docs on machine 2 fineMachine 2 connects to net fine, can see docs on macxhine 1 fine.Problem comes when trying to print a doc on machine 2 to the network printer on machine 1takes ages, word says it is trying to background print the doc,.eventually it does print but it takes 3 minutes and the machines are 10 feet apart.i have reinstalled the drivers for printer on both machines,On machine 2 the network printer is the only printer and is set as default.run network setup and print & file are all sharedCould it be a problem between the 2 versions of officeor the 2 operating systemsor the different drivers for the printer coz of the 2 operating systemsany ideas out there
I am not an expert at networking but we have a very similar setup at work and the same slow printing occurs there too on the second machine.I think its something to do with the network printer is only connected up to machine 1 so any commands to print take longer because it has to go across 2 PC's ?I think your problems would disappear if you had a dedicated network printer.
Thought of that too, coz at home i have 4 pcs linked in a very similar fashion sharing 2 printers in various locations.in each case printing to a networked printer is almost as fast as to a local printer
