Dear Experts,

I have a POS application running at at client's site. It is running at a crowded market place where, on an average two cashmemos are printed every minute and each second counts. The printer is a thermal one which normally prints immediately, without any pause after the print button is clicked.

The problem arises as soon as the Internet Connection Cable is plugged in. The printer suddenly "starts waiting" 3 to 8 seconds before it provides output.

I am confused what could be the relation between the Internet Connection and the Local Printer and why it slows down my applications output. (The operator loses patience when he has to wait for the printer)


Can someone provide me some guidance how I can solve this problem?

Thanks!
