Netport Printserver Intermittent

By Monice ·
Have Netport Express 10/100 (2)port print server on NT network. Only two win98 workstations to print directly to print server. Installed drivers on workstations to print directly to the print server. Works fine for awhile, then connection to printerlost. After awhile it comes back. Print server settings: speed=autodetect, static ip assigned, bidirectional comm=off. What am I missing?

One thing you may want to do is update the firmware on the Intel NetPort Express. The URL to the Intel download is below:

http://support.intel.com/support/netport/10100/software.htm

Other items to check include your network cable to the NetPort. Lastly, try forcing the network speed to either 10Mb or 100Mb.

Good luck.

Sorry took so long, but I updated firmware, checked cable, ports and forced net speed. Still intermittent. I shared the printers connected to the server through the fileserver and works ok. I think I'll leave it at that. Thanks
