I hope someone can shed some light on this issue.
I have a new Canon Pixma MP560 wireless printer, that appeared to install and set up on the wireless network without any issues. However, I then discovered that sending anything more than one page appears to drop the connection. It normally stalls 1/4 into the 2nd page (if it makes it through the first).
Furthermore, about 1/2 to 2/3 of pings to the printer fail.
What I can't understand is the intermittent nature of this problem. The wireless network is otherwise stable and fast, and rarely drops out. The printer recognises the router, the router recognises the printer, I can send some things to the printer... but why the drop? I'm overloading the connection somehow?!
Is there some spooler setting I should know about?
Any help would be appreciated. I'm using Windows 7 64bit.
