Help!
I have recently installed an Epson 830u printer attached by USB1.1.to replace a Lexmark also USB1.1.
My modem is an internal Conexant 56kbps.
O/S is Win 98 sp2.
Now whenever I try to print pages from a website my dialup link drops within 20 secs.
The print generally completes ok. No probs from other apps on the PC. Have tried removing Print monitor but no change.
I had no probs with the lexmark. Epson support giving me the runaround!
