Very Slow Network Printers

A few of my client machines are taking a very long time to print to my network printers.  I don't believe its the printers themselves as the speed is fine when I print to them directly from the server and from other clients.  It didn't become an issue until last Sunday when i deleted their user profiles and then recreated them due to an unrelated issue.  I undeployed and redeployed them last night but that was no help.

it is online.  it does eventually print.  it doesnt matter what program & the same thing happens when you do a test page.  its NOT an issue if i do it from the computer at the desk next door or from the server directly.

I would ensure you are using LPR for communication - Appsocket can slow down the print subsystem. This can be changed in the ports options.
On the advanced tab of the device I'd also ensure the "Print Processor" options are set to Winprint and RAW on the drtiver options.
Setting it to start printing after last page is spooled will slow down large jobs, but small jobs are handled better.
Which Printer model is this, and Workstation OS?

I unplugged and replugged in the wires.  That seemed to do the trick.  Not sure why.
