HP 6983 Install problem

Is there a way to force an HP Deskjet Network Printer installation to proceed.

this is because i am pretty sure that the printer and the computer on the network is properly configured but for some reason the installation just keep on repeating.

I tried both ways, install from the original CD and install from Drivers located on my HDD.

the final install process i can reach is the point where i have to confirm that the printer found by the installation wizard is the printer i want to install. upon confirming that it is what i want to install, the wizard(not deserved to be called as) will go back to the point where it will search for network printer. it will find the printer that i want to install and ask me to confirm. I confirmed it, and the installation went back again searching for printer.

this process repeat endlessly.

the PC is connected to a wireless router via cable. the printer is connected to the router thru wireless

I tried both ways, installing it via wireless and wired network. same thing happen. My PC is connected directly on the Router where the printer is also directly connected.

any suggestion?

For the first steps, can you let us know OS your running (XP/Vista?)
What model is your router (in case there is a known bug)

Also try downloading the newest driver from the HP website.

OS: XP SP2
Router: Belkin Wireless54G
HP said I have the latest Driver.

i dont think this is the problem because i am installing the 3rd PC Other installation is successful. the only difference of this PC (that has a problem), this PC is connected to the router thru cable. the other 2 PC is connected via wireless.
