Printer printing out 3 sheets of gibberish

Every so often I check my printer (HP Color LaserJet) and it has 3 pages of gibberish.  It says things like

HEAD / HTTP 1.1

Host: IP address:9100

User-Agent : curl/7.59.0

Accept: */*

 

There's 2 more pages of this kind of stuff.  I've searched and read that it is a Netgear ORBI issue and not a printer issue.  All my computers in my house are Apple.  Any help would be greatly appreciated as this is an annoying issue.

 

Thanks.

Hi @radicalseven, welcome to the community! This has been reported to the engineering team and is being worked on. You can temporarily disable the Armor feature as other have reported that this as a workaround. The steps to do is linked below.

Any update on a fix?  This seems to be a very commonplace issue.

Hello radicalseven & patelam,

 

I'd like to follow up and ask if you were able to get the issue resolved. If not, may you please confirm the model number of your router along with the current firmware version its on. 

 

Thanks,

Christian

Hi OxfordCrew20,

 

May you factory reset your Orbi units and run through the setup assistant again.
