While I have a network and the printer is on one PC and can print at a good clip without that effect, I wonder if the CHEAP WAY OUT is to return that box and get a second printer.
I installed a Belkin Compact Parallel AutoSwitch so I can print to my hpdeskjet 940c from my Kenitec desktop and my IBM Thinkpad without having to unhook the printer everytime I change computers. It prints from both computers fine, but it takes forever!! And while its printing, my mouse will barely move so I can't keep working during printing. Both computers use Win98se and an optical mouse. How do I fix this?
