Problem with Aliased Lines to laser printer - Adobe Illustrator Windows

Greetings. Having problems with jagged, aliased lines printing to my office's new Cannon color laser printer (or any other laser printer in our office). Anti-aliasing is set in prefs, but lines look awful. Point size of all lines is .13 and everything is overlayed on a color raster image. I'm printing to 11x17 on what is supposed to be a Ferrari of a printer. Any ideas?...

    Alex,

    Which version?
    Are you printing from AI or PDF?
    Do you have Screen as PDF Conversion Setting?

    Printing directly from AI (v. CS2), no pdf compression. I think it could be that the point size of the line - .15 - is unsustainable. At .25 the problem has almost completely disappeared.

    Alex, maybe you should look at the printer settings, including resolution.

    Jacob,
    I've toggled on and off every single setting for both Illustrator and the printer. The printer resolution is 600 dpi. I'm printing through a postscript level 3 driver. I'm afraid I have no clue as to how to correct this problem.
