Was the printer/scanner connected with USB ?

Were you using your Broadband connection on USB before switching to Ethernet ?

Best way to go with Broadband is Ethernet if your modem allows it. I'm thinking you may have had some sort of USB contention problem here. Are the USB ports version 1.1 or 2.0, on a card or built-in to the motherboard or were you using a USB hub ? Version of Windows ?

Sorry, lots of questions, but lots of possible reasons for the problem.
