LaserJet 1320 not printing via print server after port reinstall

Hi,

I've just set up a new network with a PSUS4 Linksys print server on it. Attached to the server through a USB port is an HP LaserJet 1320 printer. Did not have any problems setting up the printer on Win2K computer. Tried to do the same on On the WinXP Home machine - no luck. I set up a new port going by the print server's static IP. The  printer installs, but would not print the test page. However, When I go into the bi-directional utility on the print server - I can print the test page just fine.

I do need to note, that I used to have the same printer installed on this machine under a different IP address. Also, currently I have another installation of the printer through a USB port on it too.

I suspect I have some type of a driver? conflict in my XP system. But when I uninstall the printer and the port it is using, and try to reinstall again - it tells me that the drivers are already installed. How can I uninstall the printer drivers for good?

Thanks

the problem should be with the port setup... the driver is fine...

here is the link from linksys, note the instructions about the "ports" at the second half of the instructions (under Custom Settings):
http://linksys.custhelp.com/cgi-bin/linksys.cfg/php/enduser/std_adp.php?p_faqid=146&p_created=1084204640&p_sid=DMSOXdai&p_accessibility=0&p_lva=&p_sp=cF9zcmNoPTEmcF9zb3J0X2J5PSZwX2dyaWRzb3J0PSZwX3Jvd19jbnQ9MTQ3JnBfcHJvZHM9MCZwX2NhdHM9JnBfcHY9JnBfY3Y9JnBfc2VhcmNoX3R5cGU9YW5zd2Vycy5zZWFyY2hfbmwmcF9zY2ZfbGFuZz0xJnBfcGFnZT0xJnBfc2VhcmNoX3RleHQ9cHN1czQgeHAgaG9tZQ**&p_li=&p_topview=1

most common problem is the "parallel port" or printer port setting after the ip address is configured.

another way is to use the Wizard included on the Linksys CD.

I hope this helps...

It ended up being a Zone Alarm problem. I am still working on it but any time I shut ZA down, the printer works fine.

Thanks for the link, though - it pushed me in the right direction
