Have 3 PCs on our home network. After completing a major Win 10 update the 2 pcs that use wi-fi to connect to the printer are very, very slow to initiate printing. The host office PC is direct connected using USB to the printer initiates printing at a very good normal speed. If I take this host pc and connect to the printer with wi-fi also, it aslso initiates printing very, very slow. Anyone know of a Windows update that broke this connectivity?

I got a new HP OfficeJet Pro couple weeks ago, new feature is Quiet printing but it does warn it will be slower.

I have the OfficeJet Pro and a LaserJet Pro attached by Ethernet to the Router and the Wireless/Wi-Fi Notebooks connect through the Router and are a bit slower than printing from the Desktops that are connected by Ethernet. Haven't seen anything to indicate that is a problem with an update yet.
