When I print via the USB cable on my Dell v305w (which is also a scanner), everything is perfectly fine.

However, when I print via WiFi, typically three lines on the page are skewed.

Here in detail:

If you look at the print that was done via the USB cable, it looks perfect:

Any ideas as to what's going on and how to fix it?

Are you saying that's reproducible 100% of the time!? That's nuts--props to whoever figures this one out. – NReilingh Sep 18 '10 at 3:28
@NReilingh Yes, reproducible 100% of the time. – AngryHacker Sep 18 '10 at 16:53

Try changing the printer processor's data type:

Windows 7: Devices and Printers -> Right click printer -> Printer properties -> Advanced -> Printer Processor

Select LEMF for 'Default data type' (this is the same type as the USB is interface is using).

I guess I should have tried this first. I completely uninstalled the driver, then reinstalled the newest version (it was over 70mb, yes) and now it prints fine wirelessly. Thanks.
