I own a Netgear Nighthawk X6 AC3200 router and I installed a Canon MF229dw printer on my home network. The printer always went into paused mode and I couldn't figure out why. After 3 days of pulling my hair out I figured out how to fix this problem. I made a page with step by step instructions and screenshots on how to fix this. I hope this helps somebody else because I couldn't find any help online.
If you are interested here is the backstory.
My new network printer always went into paused mode and I couldn't figure out why. I thought the problem was the printer so I uninstalled/reinstalled everything but it didn't fix the problem. I went online and found other people had the same problem but nobody had a solution or explanation. After a few days I decided that maybe the problem was something in the router, not the printer. I couldn't find anything at routerlogin.net so I downloaded Netgear Genie and discovered that my router didn't recognize my printer as a printer. I changed that setting and I never had the problem again.
