I have two PCs: one with Windows Vista, the other with Windows 7 (64-bit) that are both connected to a Canon MP530 multifunction printer through an IOGEAR GUB211 printer sharing switch. The problem is that the Windows 7 computer erroneously says that the printer is offline when it is not offline.
The Windows Vista computer prints thru the switch perfectly.
Each computer can also print on the printer when it is directly connected to the printer, and each computer can get the switch to switch to itself for printing. I have updated all systems and drivers involved and none of the websites troubleshooting pages and manuals address this problem.
Does anyone know of a fix? thanks.
