Please specify the server OS, and if that happen when the printer is connected or not? you may check to do the opposite and see the result. Is the USB port working with other devices?

If the network connection is good with other services then it is OS problem, check the event viewer and see what error messages it logs and post it; If the network is not stable then it may  the network card.
