I have a Dell5110 printer driver issue. I have both XP and Windows 7 workstations on the network. If I load the XP driver for the printer the Windows 7 workstation cannot connect to the printer, If I load the Windows 7 driver the XP workstations loose the ability to print duplex. Dell tech support has no solution at this time. Has anyone else come across this and found a solution ?

Go to the printer's web management interface and set it to a static ip address ( I like to use .150, 151, etc ).  Then set both systems to use a standard TCP/IP port to match and disable the Dell/Lexmark printer locator service.  I'll bet that will fix it.
