Both of my networked printers (HP7500 inkjet and HP CP2025 color laser) will occasionally lose the connection over night. Sometimes just turning the printer off and then back on is the fix, and sometimes restarting the computer is necessary. Last month I was having all kinds of ageda with the laser. Jim helped me delete virtually every shred of code related to the printers and then I reinstalled the drivers again. Since then, no problems (except for the now very rare dropped connection in the morning).
BTW, 40' apart. 40? Where's your home office — in a f'n football stadium?
