HP P1102w printer installation

Have trouble getting the driver installed on a new computer.  Tried wireless and usb and both end up with no driver installed.  What should I do?

I had it installed previously on a desktop with Windows 7, Windows 8.1, then Windows 10 with no problems.  I deleted the printer then restarted, them installed via USB.  Finally worked with no problems.  The blue light stays on all the time meaning, I think, that the wireless is not working.  I can print to it from a laptop, presumably through the computer's wireless capability - not directly to the printer.  While I'd like to ditch the USB cable, I'm content to leave well enough alone.  Thanks for sharing your experience.

My HP P1102w installed without problems using USB on my XP machine.  All my other machines including Win 7 machines connect to it without any problems.  

What OS is your machine?  Did you get any error messages?

In my apartment, I avoid wireless.  I have up to 79 wireless networks at one time in my area.  Too much interference.

By trial and error, I finally was able to resolve the problem.  I just cannot use the wireless feature.  However, it does everything I need.
