Hi,

I tried the solution below suggested by HP.  Still unable to print.  Also tried installing the Belkin printer port with that alternative printer driver suggested below by HP.  That did not work.   Should I try anything else, or should I conclude that the Belkin print server and HP printer will never work together, no matter what I do?
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------
I understand that you are not able to install the your HP Photosmart C3180 All-in-One in  a wireless print server.

You can install alternate driver for that pupose.

Here are the steps to install alternate drivers:


Step 1. Installing the Alternate drivers:
-----------------------------------------

  1.  Start, Control Panel, and then select Printer and Faxes.
  2.  Double-click the Add Printer icon.  Click Next.
  3.  When prompted, choose Local, and then click Next.
  4.  In the Manufacturers list, choose HP.
  5.  In the Printer list, choose the HP Deskjet 990C printer, and then
      click Next.
  6.  Choose LPT1 as the port, and then click Next.
  7.  The printer name should be listed as HP Deskjet 990C Printer.
  8.  Click No when the "Do you want your Windows based programs to use
      this printer as your default printer?" message appears.  Then
      click Next.
  9.  Click No when the "Would you like to print a test page
      (recommended)" message appears.  Then, click Finish.

Step 2. Creating a TCP/IP port:
--------------------------------

1.Start, Control Panel, and then select Printer and Faxes.
2.Click File and then click Server Properties.
3.Select the Ports tab, and then click Add Port.
4.Select TCP/IP Port and create a new port.
5.Type the IP address of the Print server and proceed with the onscreen instructions.

Step 3:  Configure the alternate printer drive:
------------------------------------------------

  1.  In the Printers Window, right-click the icon for HP Deskjet 990C
      printer.
  2.  Click Properties.
  3.  Click the Details Tab.  In Windows XP, click the Ports tab.
  4.  Click the down-arrow where it says "Print to the Following Port."
      Select TCP/IP port that was created in step 1.
      The all-in-one's model number should appear as part of the port
      destination.
  5.  Leave the HP Deskjet 990C printer identified as using the
      following driver, and click Apply.
  6.  Close the Printer Properties window.

Now you will be able to print using the alternate drivers.
