DeskJet 930c with Linksys PrintServer EPSX3 prints garbage

DeskJet930c connected with Linksys PrintServer EPSX3 prints garbage (random characters). We have checked cable, also LaserJet work fine with this printserver unit. Any ideas ? Maybe you know how to disable bidirectional communication in DeskJet 930c ?

These printers were never offered with a network card for a reason, that being that they are evil on a network, and never seem to work in a stand-alone. There is no way to disable the bi-directional communication. The drivers included were never intended for a network situation.

On thing to try is to go to HP's site download the Corporate drivers for this printer. These do not install the utilities. This **might** help.

The other (prefered) option is to share this off a W2K workstation instead of a stand alone print server.

The last idea is to switch to a HP JetDirect box. The default lang on the linksys might be interfering.

Thanks for answer, I solve this few days ago, but forget to share this here. Instaling corporate drviers solved the problem.
