That's right, I don't have a serial console.|
If the USB hub is really reset, then this might be an explanation. As 'lsusb' suggests, the QNAP internally only seems to have one USB hub:
Bus 001 Device 003: ID 0781:5571 SanDisk Corp.
Bus 001 Device 002: ID 05e3:0608 Genesys Logic, Inc. USB-2.0 4-Port HUB
Bus 001 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002 Linux Foundation 2.0 root hub
The device has 4 ports, of which 3 are on the back and one is on the front. The "SanDisk Corp." is my USB flash drive with the OS installed on it, connected to one of the backside ports. The other ports were not occupied when I issued the above command.
So what would be the most sensible thing to try? Connecting the printer to the front port instead of one of the back ports?
When doing this I will also try to use another cable as I'm currently using an extension cable (2 meters I think).
But one thing to add: I have been using this very printer, this very NAS and this very set of cables for approx. one year every day using the original QNAP firmware. And I never had a crash or problems printing using the NAS and CUPS.
