[Slow printing] CUPS uses a very limited bandwidth when spooling

https://bbs.archlinux.org – Hi all,I have an Epson AcuLaser M2300-N, connected to my LAN via ethernet on a 1Gbit link and configured in cups with its own eplaser driver. The printer itself supports a 100Mbit link, and I can see in its web interface that 100Mbit (full duplex) is indeed the negotiated speed, but some prints are incredibly slow and take a lot of time. I did some network testing and I noticed that the printer sends out about 200-250 Kib/s, nothing more, so whenever the page contains some graphics I need sometimes up to 10 minutes just to print a single page.I'm not able to find what is causing the slowd (HowTos)
