Windows LAN connections will time-out, especially if DHCP is being used

by robo_dev In reply to printing problem

1) check power management settings on PC and on network adapter on PC.

If PC is going to sleep, it will not print. Make sure PC is set to 'always on'.

Make sure that 'Allow Windows to turn off this device to save power' is not checked.

2) Use static IP address on PC that shares printer. If IP address changes, or even if DHCP lease is renewed, Windows may not see the share properly.

3) If using DHCP, set lease time to much longer than four hours (8-12 hours would be best).
