I have 2 identical emachines desktop computers running Vista Home Premium Service Pack 1 with all the updates connected to the network with wireless cards. Computer #2 has a HP LaserJet 2600n printer attached and shared. I can see the printer on Computer #1 and get it to install. I can print from Computer #2 with no problem. If I try print from Computer #1 the job just sits in the print queue with the status of Printing but the job is never actually printed. Additional jobs from either computer are forced to sit in the queue behind the stuck print job. If I restart Computer #2 or restart the print spooler on it, all of the jobs that are in queue at that time print. If I try to print from Computer #1 after the queued jobs have been printed the new job will get stuck again. I can see all of the print jobs in the queue on both computers and I never get any errors.
I have tried changing the setting for which computer does the spooling and if it should print after the last page is spooled or start printing immediately and it has not had any noticeable effect. I have had the printer connected and shared on both computers and had he same results.
I welcome any suggestions that my resolve the issue.
