In one company everyone is allowed to use the network with their own devices. The companys laptops are all in a domain, passwords are stored on a server.
There are printers too, everyone can add them by searching in "devices and printers", everyone can print.
I normally use only one printer in this company, I havent tried others. This printer can be found twice in "devices and printers" search, first with its IP address, second with :54000 as port behind the IP address.
I am connecting via LAN cable, the printer is connected via cable too, ping to the printer is good and below 1ms.
The problem is, the printing is slow. I send a print job, it takes very long to start printing, then one page is printed then there is a pause. Then the next page is being printed, then a pause again, till the document is finished.
I heard employees from this company with their own laptops and domain have this problem too, I think it is getting better, when I add the :54000 printer instead of the IP address only printer, but this is only a guess.
It is not a LAN problem, what could it be then? Printing from USB stick is fast, it is a big office Canon color laserprinter.
My laptop has Windows 8.1 x64, 16gb RAM, SSD. Printing at home is no problem.
