How is your printer connected to your machine and do you have the latest drivers for it? If you change the default printer to something else in Printer Setup Utility, does it still crash? :)

Are you using an AirPort or a different brand of router? Is it connected to the router via ethernet or USB? What brand and model or printer is it? :)

im using a netgear router i believe with the printer being a HP 970cxi. The printer is connected to an emac and I have "share printers" on in the emacs preferences. The emac in turn is connected to the router which is wirelessly connected to my macbook

thanks for the help mad jew!
