Still in pain printing

in Genius Bar edited January 2014
I use a PB G3 400 (scsi) with 256mo

I print home on an HP 2100 (ethernet, hub, adsl), everything is fine

I print at work on an HP 2100 (ethernet, NT network, cable)

- everything is fine if i start under os 9 (office 2001)

- everything is fine if i print under classic (office 2001)

- It's horrible as soon as I use os X (any apps from office X to preview, TextEdit and so on) : takes minutes, not all the pages printed, generally the last one is not printed.

Other Mac such as Titanium and X works fine even on the same cable/plug than the one i use.

That's it, I have the same problem in an other office (I don't know precisely which kind of network but according to me it's 100% Mac) and It's the same from september, the time I install os X with my regular installation disk and all the upgrades (10.1.5 today)

Thanks for your genius help

    I'd recommend the standard trashing preferences and optimizing disks routine. You'll want to get rid of Print Center and Microsoft Word v.X preferences (or at least move them for a bit to see if they're the problem). For optimization, I'd recommend Alsoft's PlusOptimizer, which comes on a CD with DiskWarrior (you might also want to rebuild your disks with DiskWarrior, for good measure). Best of luck, wish I could help more, but I haven't seen anything similar at my house (no network printers, HP LPRs don't seem to have any print servers to go with them).
