Printing Is Slow

  1. Check1 Printer may be printing or scanning a large job from another computer.

  2. Check2 Make sure the printer is not placed too far away from the wireless router.

    Place the wireless router and printer where there are no obstacles between them. Wireless communication between different rooms or floors is generally poor. Wireless communication can be impeded by building materials containing metal or concrete. If the printer cannot communicate with the computer over a wireless LAN due to a wall, place the printer and the computer in the same room.

    In addition, if a device like a microwave oven that emits radio waves of the same frequency bandwidth as a wireless router is nearby, it may cause interference. Place the wireless router as far away from interference sources as possible.


    • Though an antenna is attached to most wireless routers, note that some of them have it inside.
  3. Check3 Make sure wireless signal is strong. Monitor signal status and move printer and wireless router as necessary. (Windows)
