      I have an HP Officejet Pro 6978 printer which operates on 2G and my computer uses 5G. I cannot get on the internet using 2g so quite often my printer goes offline and I need to put it back online. Is there a way I can keep the printer from going offline by itself?

      You can download the user manual/guide here. On page 3, it talks about sleep mode, auto-off and scheduling on/off. There are also troubleshooting tips farther back (around p.90 and p.123)

    Please follow the -Lounge Rules- no personal attacks, no swearing, and politics/religion are relegated to the Rants forum.
