276DW Driver causes job to abort

I'm running Windows 8.1 (64-bit).  My computer connects wirelessly to my printer. When printing a duplex job, after about 7 pages the job aborts.

I would check to see if there is an updated driver to download.
You could also up date the firmware.

Re: 276DW Driver causes job to abort

I have the current driver from Hp and my printer has the latest frmware.


While testing, I removed the driver. I then Connected the printer using an ethernet cable. AFter reinstalling the driver it worked. I then removed the driver. I reinstalled the driver (wirelessly) and it fails. I think it's a problem with the wireless part of the driver.


Currently I'm using the 8600 Class driver (wirelessly) and it works, except that it cuts the text off in the header and footer of documents.
