(Solved) Netgear router puts printer into paused or sleep mode
I own a Netgear Nighthawk X6 AC3200 router and I installed a Canon printer on my home network. The printer always went into paused mode and I couldn't figure out why. I thought the problem was the printer so I uninstalled/reinstalled everything but it didn't fix the problem. I went online and found other people had the same problem but nobody had a solution or explanation. After a few days I decided that maybe the problem was something in the router, not the printer. I couldn't find anything at routerlogin.net so I downloaded Netgear Genie and discovered that my router didn't recognize my printer as a printer. I changed that setting and I never had the problem again.
If you would like to see step by step instructions with screenshots I made a page. I hope this helps someone because it took me days to figure out!
