HP Deskjet through file server
Posted on 2009-06-29
Hi. I've go an HP Deskjet 842 that is connected to my wired network through a linksys print server. This setup works fine with my XP Home, XP Pro, and a Mac Book. Being an idiot, I did not write down the steps I had to use. I've tried Win 7 through the print server and directly to the usb port. No joy. HP says that there is no need for a Vista driver, it's built in.
I tried connecting as a network printer, as a USB printer through the IP address, and direct connect to the USB port. I really don't want to get a new printer to use with this machine. Any suggestions?
