    Printer stops after 1/4 page when connected to time capsule
    I have an HP 4210 connected to Time Capsule and set up on my Macbook air. However whenever I try to print it stops printing 1/4 down the page, and sort of hangs. In the print jobs pane the document says 'Ready to print'. How can I solve this?

    How about when you attach the HP directly to the MBA, does it print OK?

    I'm assuming you're printing wireless between your Mac and the Time Capsule? Because it sounds like the connection is being dropped or interuppted and that causes the printer to stop or go off line. Also, the HP documentation shows this printer as USB only.

    I know that. But your Mac is communicating with the Time Capsule via wireless right?

    Sorry must have misread your comment. Yes it communicates with time capsule via wireless.
