***URGENT*** Help Needed!!!
« on: June 11, 2007, 11:47:34 AM »
Right. My Wireless LAN Adapter is USB. So is my printer. Whenever I try to print something from the internet (such as sheet music with Sibelius Scorch, different to simply clicking File-Print I can do that but need to press print button to get all sheet music). I have a problem, because I can't use my printer and Wireless Adapter at the same time, I think it overloads the USB or something. How can I fix this?

If this is a desktop get a wireless PCI card to free up a USB port...

If it's a laptop well that's another issue.

    I think its because the USB can only send 1 (Including Sending and Recieving) signal back and forth at a time, and not 2 signals at a time (Using the internet and printing it at the same time).

    How are these devices hooked up ? ?

    What type of machine is this ? ?

    If your theory was correct USB would not be able to handle an internet connection as data travels both ways simultaenously.
