My tcp/ip on windows 98 shared printer keeps going offline

I've got about 8 w98 hosts on a tcp/ip connected network.  I've read of similar problems but they are not quite the same.

When I print the printer sets itself offline with an 'unknown problem'.  If I set it online again it prints the documents but the printer is grayed out in printers.  After a bit it comes back.

I don't think it can be any of the connections because it works when I put the printer back online.  This happens on all the attached hosts.

Any offers?

The easiest solution would be to add NetBEUI to the network (all machines)
Are you using static ip's or dhcp?
If static, are you using lmhosts?
