If network is slowing down do this
Send a large PDF and watch the spooling progress in the print queue. If it starts out buzzing along at 2MB/second and then it slow down to 100KB/second, or stall altogether then after 30 seconds it goes Offline. Try this…. set FRPO J2 from default ’6′ (30 seconds) to ’12′ (60 seconds) in the Command Center, Printer, FRPO Settings, I/F Dependent. Then submit. In other words, increase how long it takes for the copier to timeout when communicating.
