2WIRE 3800HGV-B and HP Laserjet network printer - extremely slow printing
I just switched from Timewarner Cable to AT&T's U-verse. I have an HP Color LaserJet CP1518ni connected to the 2WIRE 3800HGV-B modem/router that AT&T gave me. I am using it as a wireless router, but the HP is connected to it directly via Ethernet. Nothing else is connected the the 2WIRE modem/router - just the HP printer.
I had the same setup with Timewarner (their wireless modem/router) and my HP printer hard wired to it. It was working fine. I never had any problems with printing speeds.
Now - it takes 10 minutes and longer to print a simple PDF document. Even text documents take minutes to print. - I did not change anything with the printer, I just plugged it into the new AT&T modem/router.
Wireless internet speeds are as fast as they should be for the service I am paying for (in the 20MB/s range). It's just the wireless printing that is a big problem now.
I was trying to get help from AT&T's (Indian) tech support, but they said that they'd not deal with printer problems and I'd have to talk to HP - which is of course nonsense since one day it works fine - the next day with the new AT&T router the printing speed slows down to a crawl.
Does anyone know if there is anything in the setup of the 2WIRE that would have such a negative effect on printing speeds? Is there anything I can tweak, any area I should take a close look at?
I'd really be happy for any kind of advice. Thank you so much in advance.
