	may I assume it is hp 2200N, with internal network adapter? If
this is the case, the most probable cause is the adapter itself. The
jet-directs just didn't like 2200 printers (nor 2100). All my 2200N
printers were displaying the symptoms you describe. They started working
very nicely after I've put them on external jet directs - an expensive,
but successful work-around.
	Good luck, julius
