I have 2 PCs:

> a 64-bit Windows 7 tower
> a 32-bit Windows 7 laptop

They are on a network with 3 components:

> 1 Wireless Network Router
> 1 ADSL 2+ router
> Ethernet cables

A printer is connected to the laptop that is is available to the network.

But printing documents from the PC tower to the laptop is VERY SLOW..... grr..

A 3 page document takes 3 secs when printed directly on the laptop but takes 1:30 to print through the network.

Any help is much appreciated :D

How are the computers connected to the router? If either or both is connected by Wi-Fi try ethernet connection(s) to see if there is any difference.

Have you compared printer properties on the two machines to make sure that the ones that affect speed are the same? Two that come to mind are print quality and buffering.

Were the proper drivers available for each system, or did you have to use a Vista or other driver on the 64-bit machine?

What results do you get with the printer connected to the 64-bit machine?

In case somebody is familiar with it post the brand and model of the printer.
