HP laserjet printer 1022N disconnects from network_
Posted on 2011-10-19
I have a user that is running win 7 64bit. He is using an HP laserjet 1022N printer. Installed the 64bit drivers and it's been working fine for months. All of a sudden a few weeks ago, it happens once in a while, when he tries to print, it doesn't do anything, unless he hits the power button on the printer (to turn it off/on). It's like it goes into a sleep mode or something.
The same thing is happening to the VP as well, same printer, but he is using Lion on his Macbook Pro.
I also have the same printer for testing, and it's doing the exact same thing to me as well.
I've tested numerous things, I unchecked the autoIP, mDNS, bootP, I'm only using the static IP address for it, to include the gateway and subnet.
I don't think all three boards went bad at the same time, so it somehow must be a networking issue somehow? I checked DNS, and there are no duplicates in there for the IPs of the printers. DHCP server only gives out IPs above .100, and the printers are static, so I'm at a loss of what it can be.
If i turn off the printer and back on, then it works for a few hours or so, maybe longer.
