wireless printer lag

i have a windows 8 PC with a wireless printer HP officejet pro 8500 a910
it works ok - but each time i print, it waits for 25 -30 sec before starting to print

the printer is set to start printing immediately - not after spooling

how can i set it up to start printing Directly?

It's not spooling but maybe connecting?

Are you sure your wireless connection is not the one that's slowing the printing?

You still have to fill the buffer on the printer before it will start to print. Since you are printing directly to the printer and not spooling then the printer must also render the print job, what is the wireless signal strength at both the workstation and printer?  Anything less than 100% means there WILL be retransmitted packets so that a 60% signal means will have more lag then systems registering 80% signal

it is an HP P6-2307eb system
it does not use the router wifi, it uses the internal 802.11 Wireless b/g/n PCI-E Mini card

what do you mean by "it does not use the router wifi, it uses the internal 802.11 Wireless b/g/n PCI-E Mini card"?

Do you connect to the printer directly without getting through the wireless router? Using wifi direct protocol?

jackieman, if it has a wifi card, why would it use the router?  (btw it's an old one: B-Box)
or what do you mean?  the printer is not connected to the router physically, but to another PC over usb (but i doubt it has anything to do with this
