Cannot use printer while I'm online . . . as soon as I turn it on it knocks me offline. Tried switching ports with no luck. Also, I'm able to use the same ports to plug in my camera or GPS while I'm online with no problem. Need to print online . . . can you help??
Printer is an Epson CX8400 - not wireless. Spent 30 min. talking to Charter tech support - 45 min. talking to Epson tech support and nobody seems to be able to help. Told me to call Microsoft tech support!!!! Seems like the printer overtakes the wireless port somehow??? I have uninstalled and reinstalled my printer. I have uninstalled and reinstalled my USB hubs. I did discover that when I turned on my printer that it showed up in the USB 2.0 Root Hub listed along with my wireless adapter??
I'm not really computer literate so your response is "greek" to me. Sorry. However, just a note . . . I have another computer with the same wireless adapter and the same printer and have no problem printing online with that one???
