Hello everyone, I've encourted an odd problem recently with the HP 2035n model LaserJet printer.
When the device is powered up and plugged into the network, I instantly get a dropped connection on both hard wired to the router PC's, as well as wireless pc's. Leaving the printer powered on while plugged into the network keeps all the PC's in a state of dropping & then regaining connection, and the redropping again, pretty much an endless cycle. When the Printer get's powered down, the network goes right back to normal & stable. This is using a NETGEAR WGR614 V5 Router.
In the past I have encountered a "Babbling NIC". This thing made an entire network segment completely unusable. The moment that PC was pulled off the network, everything went back to normal. This current situation with the 2035n is eerily similar. I can't find anything on the net, nor through search here on the forums. I think it may be too new.
Any help troubleshooting this thing would be great. Thanks for looking everyone.
