I just purchased a HP Color LaserJet CP1215 and have a problem printing. I currently use a D-Link DP-300U Print Server and have two printers hooked up to it: the CP1215 and an HP LaserJet 1100. I have two (2) laptops and a desktop. The laptops are a Tosiba Satellite (Windows XP) and an HP Pavilion (Windows Vista). The desktop is a Sony VIAO (Windows XP). I can print from the Toshiba Laptop and the Sony VIAO to both printers either wirelessly or hardwired. I can also print from the HP Pavillion to the LaserJet 1100 either wirelessly or hardwired. When I try to print from the HP Pavillion to the CP1215 wirelessly, the printer will not stop printing until I manually cancel the print job. Even if I print a test page it will continue to print test pages until I manually cancel the job. It almost seems as if there is an infinite loop whereby the print job re-initializes after it finishes. At this point I am assuming it has something to do with Vista since it seems to work with both of the XP machines. I don't think it is the print server. Has anyone experienced this problem and if so were you able to correct it? I would appreciate any input from you.

Yes, I am having the exact same problem. I have a CP 1215, connected to a Linksys Wireless G Print Server (WPSM54G) and using Vista-64.
I have tried EVERYTHING with no success. I have managed to get it to stop printing continuously, but, the problem now is, if you tell it to print say, 2 or 3 copies, maybe it prints, maybe it does not print at all. It like "disappears" into the ether and never comes out on the printer. Sometimes, it does not even print when I tell it to print directly from the print server to the printer.

I stumbled upon this site while looking for a solution. Eventually found the answer somewhere else (at least for me). You have to change it to an LPR queue, and check off LPR Byte Counting Enabled. (This is assuming Vista, I think).
I have some more details at my website; feel free to check it out, leave me a note if you it helped you :-).

Thanks Hoborocks, it worked for me! I'm using Windows 7 64-bit and a d-link DI-604UP router. No more wasted paper or toner!
