Question about HP LaserJet 1020 Printer
If I hook up the HP laserjet 1020 to a print server with a wireless router, it prints a single page from each computer sending to the router then the computers hang up if subsequent print jobs are sent, hung up meaning they just pile up in the print spooler. If I then hook the printer directly to the computers with a cable, works great every time. Hooked up a second HP 1020 to the print server, same problem. I have tried different print servers, but the problem is the same. I took a different model of HP printer. Worked great for multiple prints. No hang ups. But if I use a printer server, I get one page and then it stops. I have to reattach the printer directly to the computer and print a page, then I can hook it back up to the print server for another page. Alternating hookups between page prints wont work though. My goal is to have a class with 6 portable computers with internal wireless links and one printer hooked to a wireless router/print server. Come into the class room, set up the printer with the associated wireless router/print server and let the 6 teams share the printer. This setup works fine with other printers, even other HP printers, but not with the HP laserjet 1020. Too bad because I really like that printer, small and easy to ship between classes, fast and good quality prints. Any ideas how to make this work?

I have same problem and have just learned that HP LaserJet 1020 is a host-based (i.e. GDI-based) printer that makes use of the processing power of the host it is hooked up locally to. No GDI based printers works with print servers.
