Vista to Vista Network Printing -- Slow Performance Issue
Just swapped out my XP machine, which had a USB HP 6210 printer attached, and
was used as my network printing resource - to a new Vista (home premium) box.
The other main PC on the network is running Vista Home Premium. The old
configuration worked fine (after the work-around to make Vista "see" the
network printer (i.e. installing it as a local printer)) - but now it is
unusable.

Loaded new printer drivers on the new vista (machine, and the printer works
great as a local device. Went to networked (main) PC, was able to "find"
the networked printer, installed, and ran a test page - everything works.
However, in practical use - the applications (word 2003 for example) wait
about 30 secs to "find" the printer - messages come up saying "the printer
hasn't responded - continue to wait?" - if I do wait, the print finally
happens, but the process is way too slow.

This seems like a vista issue, but if it could be my linksys router, my hp
printer or something else please let me know!

Is the host PC going to sleep?

Nope - I haven't even started the screen saver yet.

Re: Vista to Vista Network Printing -- Slow Performance Issue
Haven't fixed this - but thought would post for others -- It is not a
network/printer problem - the issue is Microsoft Word 2003! All other apps
print at normal speeds - and even Excel 2003 is OK. Still can't figure out
why Word 2003 on my Vista machine worked fine when printing to an XP-hosted
printer, and now it is slow. Probably just a way to get me to by Word 2007
which I don't need....
