Installed a SonicWall Firewall Now I Can't Print

Product Name: HP ENVY 5660 e-All-in-One Printer series
Operating System: Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Printing worked fine between the HP Laptop (17-x116dx) and the printer prior to installing a SonicWall firewall. Everything on the firewall is open and allowed as it pertains to the wireless network. However now when I try to print anything graphics intensive only the first 1/4 to 1/3 of the page prints. I uninstalled and reinstalled the driver and it didn't help. Any ideas? Thanks in advance for any assistance provided.

Remove the Sonic Firewall.  Windows firewall works just fine.  If not, contact Sonic company.

Printer Hint #1 - Always buy a printer with a display panel for easy configuration.
Printer Hint #2 - Always buy a printer with separate black and separate color cartridges.
Printer Hint #3 - Always buy a wireless printer with an Ethernet port for backup.
Special Hint: There is a 97.2% (and increasing) chance the information you seek is in the User Guide/Manual or on your printers HP Support Page. Remember, Google is your friend.

Hellow Hilltechgeek,

I use Webroot Secureanywhere (Ver 9) and do not get viruses or malware (that I know of).  It comes as part of Geek Squad, which I've used a few times for tech glitches.   Good luck.
