Does Windows 8 (Microsoft) supports hp laserjet printer 6L. I need to install on my
Asus notebook wirelessly. Would I also need a to convert the printer cable attached with USB as the new notebook
will only accept USB.
Please help.

Secondly I need USB3 splitter. What is the cost.

Which specific Laserjet 6L do you own? It should be on a metal tag or sticker on the back.

More than likely, this driver is already included in Windows 8 and should detect it.

If you are using it wirelessly, you should not need any cable at all.

Well, if you are in a country than the United States, HP might have a website for your country to download the "L" driver. The U.S. one only lists the models stated above, and they are usually found on a sticker or metal plate, or made directly into the plastic casing or whatever.

As far as I can tell, none of those printers have a Windows 7 driver from HP.

HP reports that drivers for the LaserJet 6L series are provided via Windows Update. To install the printer over your network, first open Print Management by entering printmanagement.msc at the Start Screen and selecting the resulting item printmanagment. Next, expand Print Servers, your local PC, and select Printers. Right click in the white space or on Printers and select Add Printer. Select Add a TCP/IP or Web Services Printer by IP address or hostname. Enter the IP address of your printer and uncheck the box for Auto detect the printer driver to use. Select Install a new driver, then on the next screen find HP under the manufacturer and locate LaserJet 6L PS under Device. Alternatively you can also select the Windows Update to contact Windows Update for a more complete and up to date list of drivers (which contains a more up to date LaserJet 6L driver), though this will take a while as it accesses the list over the internet.

You can find more about Print Management here on TechNet. The printer can also be added using the instructions found under the Microsoft Support page Add, view, and manage your devices and printers.
