Print Server trouble

  POiZN 17:35 02 Jun 2008

I have purchased a Belkin Wireless Print Server today, and plugged it in via Ethernet to my Sky Netgear Router. I have set it up as it says and it's installed the printer to my Vista laptop. I tried printing a test page and it half printed then crashed. I deleted the software and then reinstalled. I tried another test page and the printer started to warm up, then just froze, the Epson software said it was printed 100%, but didn't go away.

Any ideas?

Not a whiz at networking (infact I am awful at it). However can you send a ping to the print server and see if there is some lag or otherwise? Is the ethernet cable connected properly. I have seen a few people have issues cured by replacement of the Cat5 cabling.

I can ping it with an average of 2ms.

I've just deleted the printer, then reconnected to it so Vista installed it and when tring to print, the router communicates with the print server, then the printer makes noises, then the Epson Monitor crashes, then it all stops and wont print again til I uninstall and reinstall.
