    My Brother HL-5250DN laser printer on my network will not stay connected to my Macbook.

    I install the printer and everything works great. But next time I am on the network it won't print. It says printer is ready but when I print a doc. it never makes it to the printer. It will show 0% to as much as 16% complete but never prints (or even wakes up the printer).

    I have to uninstall the printer and reinstall the printer and it works again ....till I shut down and I'm on again.:(


    Anyone have any help for this?


    Thanks,

    Steve

    Can you ping the printer? What router do you have? Do you have it setup with DHCP or Static IP? We just need a little more details on how your network is setup..
