Fred,

I am also very grateful for all the helpful tips/tricks you and Terry give.  I don't always respond like should, but do read posts almost daily.  I tend to bookmark most for later.

Thanks,
Dave

Thank you Fred and Happy New Year to you too.  I enjoy and have learned so much over the years from your posts as well as others posts too.

Terry,

It appears it could be a Firefox issue although I've used Firefox for years with no issue.  I have version 50.1.0 of Firefox.  I used Internet Explorer 11 and it worked just fine.  Not sure what would have changed in Firefox but I know I've had some issues with the last couple of Firefox updates hanging on some websites.  Guess I'll figure it out somehow.

Thanks,
Dave

Couldn't find a better spot to put this (sorta/kinda photography related  Grin). I was wondering if anyone else is having the issue I have just begun having with these forums.  Usually I will come to this website (www.ddisoftware.com/tech), click on the "home" button, and then click on "Show unread posts since last visit".  Doing that would always show me what was new since I've last visited the site.  Recently (not sure how long ago) it has stopped working and doesn't show the new posts.  I only know this because I manually browsed the topics and noticed that there were new posts.  Any thoughts as to what has changed, or is there something I need to check or set???

Thanks,

Dave

I too really appreciate Fred and Terry taking the time they do providing tips, tricks, and examples.  I don't get to spend near the time I'd like to working with my pictures but when I do it's nice to be able to refer to these examples to get me started in the right direction.

Thank you!!

Dave

BRAVO!

I couldn't agree more.  I may not have a 4K monitor now but it's nice to know the feature is there, and the "extra" feature is nice to have as well.  Thanks Mike for taking the time to implement these features.

Thanks,

Dave

Thanks for that Fred!  I actually didn't even realize that capability was there.

Great job of explaining Levels.  Always nice to have a good refresher!

Fred,

Sorry, must be my Engineering geek side coming out  Grin. In basic terms IGMP is a traffic cop that routes traffic efficiently to the right device and QoS allows you to assign priorities to certain types of traffic.  I had played around with a lot of settings turning things on/off but it wasn't until I enabled the QoS that I saw the improvement.  I could probably turn off the IGMP and the other things but at this point I haven't seen a down side so as they say "if it ain't broke, don't fix it"  Smiley Now I can just enjoy some good prints again!!!

Thanks,

Dave

Fred,

Just reporting back.  I set a fixed IP address on my router, fixed the channel bandwidth at 40 MHz, enabled IGMP snooping, and enabled adaptive QoS.  I have now printed a 4x6 in about 35 seconds wirelessly.  Needless to say I am happy with the results.  Now I'll work on making profiles, although the ones I downloaded from Epson were not too shabby to start with.

Thanks,
Dave

Fred,

The router is brand new as well and is a very fast router (Asus RT-AC87U 802.11ac router).  The old router (only a year old) got hit by the lightning strike too (it was the predecessor AC68U).  I'm sure it's a setting I'm missing.  I'm going to try assigning it an fixed IP address and set wireless modes, speeds etc. manually rather than using the auto settings.  I'm also using jumbo frames on the router and PC but not sure how/if that affects printer communications.  I'll report back after trying some things this weekend.

Thanks,

Dave

Fred,

My Qimage settings match yours.   I tried one with the RAW setting and it may have been a bit faster but not much.  My router is about 6 ft. away from the printer.  I'll play around with it some more this weekend when I have more time to mess with settings, etc.  I guess I can always fall back to a wired (Ethernet) connection or USB...was just trying to lessen the clutter of wires wherever I can.

Thanks,

Dave

Fred,

Thanks for the prompt reply.  I was away from the computer all weekend.  I guess to clarify my "prints take longer to produce" statement, the printer will print a few lines and stop like it's waiting for more data, then it will print a few more lines and stop, etc.  A 4x6 print took about 2 minutes to complete.  The actual print that came out looked great.  My setup matches your screen captures.  I've also included a few screen snaps of my printer port setup for comparison.

Thanks,

Dave

All,

I recently purchased an Epson R2000 printer.  My previous printer the R1900 fell victim to a lightning strike to my house that took out many other devices in my house even though I had all protected with an APC battery backup.  I have setup the R2000 as a wireless printer and all is working well for the most part.  When I go to print, the prints seem to take much longer to produce than they did on my R1900.  I'm wondering if I'm missing a setting or something.  I'm also wondering if the printer port should be set to "high speed (RAW)" as opposed to "LPR printing", it's currently set the the LPR setting.  My router is an Asus RT-AC87U and the printer is connected to the 2G network.  Not sure if there are optimal settings within the printer that should be set (i.e. fixed vs auto settings).  Any help would be appreciated.  Now to get working on ICC profiles.

Thanks,

Dave
