Sorry for the hijack here, but perhaps a little help regarding this spooling and transfer rates?
I have the PS GP model, I use XP Sp3 and Qimage.
When I print a job, lets say Qimage 'prints' the job to the spool, takes 1 minute lets say.
Then Qimage is finished and asks for file name etc etc.
In the print queue, I can see the job spooling, this may take AGES, say 20-30 mins for an A1 (800mb) - something like that.
My switch activity light is flashing rapidly so there data transfer to the printer, the printer says 'Receiving data'
After it finishes in the Windows Print queue the job disappears from there.
I look at the printer, or in the jobs page of the inbuilt web interface, it says 'Processing' for another log while (15-30min?) what it's doing I have no idea.
The network connection is 100mbs, this means that a 800mb file should take 64sec to reach the printer if running at full speed. That's a LONG way off the 20mins I get.
For comparison a 10mbs connection at full speed would transfer 800meg in about 10min, so 20min seems likely if not running at capacity.
So what's the deal? It seems everything is way too slow with transfer.
(I have no problems with printing like the OP)
Any help welcome, I want faster speeds this is such a bottleneck!
