I'm having problems with a hp officejet pro 8600, I downloaded the latest software from hp.com, and the install works fine up until it has to find the printer on the network.
it is wired, NOT using wireless. Since the software can't find it, there is a check box to manually put in the IP address, and even that doesn't work. I tried uninstalling and re-installing the software, but it just CAN'T find that printer, even though, from the computer that I am installing this software on, from a cmd prompt, I can ping the IP of the printer. I can even get to the web interface for this printer from the PC.
Anybody run into something like this? I have been googleing without much success.
