Network Printer Problems!

By trophy ·
I have a Epson Stylus 600 printer on a small network. It starts to print and then stops with a message: Error on network drive ?.. It seems to be some sort of problem on the network itself, because the printer is working just fine. It's a Windows 98network with UTP cabling through a hub, running on half duplex. What can be the problem?

Network Printer Problems!

Check and see if the printer is timing out waiting for data to be sent through. If the printer takes a while to print the first "burst" of a print job, and the network then disconnects while the printer is still printing, this is what might happen. Check the settings on the network print queue and increase the timeout to something like two or three minutes instead of the usual 30-45 seconds.

If not this, post and let me know...
