I have been experiencing some problems while printing from the second computer connected to my wired network. THe main computer is on Windows XP home edition and the second is Windows 98 SE.
Sometimes, not every time, when I try to print from the second computer to the printer which is connected to the main one, it won't print at all. I go into the printer queque display box and it shows "error" under STATUS. The first time it happened, about 6 months ago, I did all the troubleshooting on both computers, and nothing helped until I finally rebooted the main computer. When it came back online, the printer worked fine and immediately printed without resending the document. Now, whenever it freezes like that I just automatically reboot the main computer.
When it does this I am able to continue working on both computers, except for printing. It does seem to freeze up the printing capabilities in both at the same time. Meaning I can't print from either until the main computer is rebooted.
It seems to happen more as the day goes on and the computer has been on longer.
I'm not sure what other information you might need to help resolve this.
Looking forward to your reply.
