    Scanning page takes forever, not responding

    I have 2 multi function printers with scanners, i have tried using the manufacturer software and 3rd party
    After it scans the page, it takes forever for the program to recognize it and sometimes it says not responding for a super long time

    Windows 8.1 Pro 64-bit

    Not much info there, would be nice to know the specifics. I have a Brother MFC-J430W and it scans fine. Also wired or wireless?

    Latest firmware installed on them?

    I have a Brother HL-2280DW and whether I use the app on my iPhone or do it from the Laser itself or from the computer, it is able to scan and will come up very quickly on my computer. Now when I use my Lantronix xPrintServer for printing from iOS devices, it dose take longer for it to wake up the xPrint, then queue, and then send to the Laser Printer for printing. Everything is Wifi for the Laser and my Laptop. The xPrintServer uses a wired Ethernet connection to my router.

    Just like Popeye stated. Need more information on your setup.
