HP LJ 3005 printer.
IBM Thinkcentre M50
XP computer can't print to it.
Ping to printer getting some replies then all time outs..
Same with other 2 network printers they have there.
Only machine with this issue at location.
Ping to Yahoo.com and router OK
Being told all computers there go through same switch.

worked ok last week

Troubleshooting:
Release and renew ip
Netsh int ip reset command to reset tcp/ip settings....reboot...
Uninstalled NIC from device manager and updated drivers after reboot.
swapped cables with working computer.
Ran spyware scan....clean

Thinking may be bad NIC but then why only having problem with network printers?
