We have wireless router with ethernet port in it connected to network printer, and user laptops connected via wifi, now if i print one page with some text, i get that paper printed, and loads of blank pages followed after that page which i needed to be printed.

It seems, when I connect printer directly to my laptop it works just as expected. What is reasos for such weird behavior?

You've left out a lot details which could help to solve this. Did this printer work properly before? What OS are you using? What brand of printer? It sounds like the printer is not correctly installed on the laptop as a network printer, rather a local one. Is there more than one version of the printer installed? –  CharlieRB Mar 19 '13 at 11:34
    
So here's more info, if it's help, model is Canon IR 2318, OS Windows7, Also sometimes printer just seizes to respond at all (no pings, no buttons responds, except power switch) and after reboot functions again... (sorry lost cookies) For now my solution was to stick it to pc, rather then router, and share it to others via that pc... –  user000001 Mar 19 '13 at 11:47
    
@user000001, if you're really the same person as sysadmin, please have your accounts merged. See superuser.com/help/user-merge for more –  slhck Mar 20 '13 at 7:47
