I have an HP printer on a wireless network. It works with an XP laptop but not my Win 7 laptop.
I also have an EPSON printer on the same network that works with both laptops.
It seems the HP stopped working after a Win 7 update, but I'm not sure. Thanks

Hi, Thanks for the tip. It helped me with my problem. As it turned out I took the Win7 laptop into the office where the printer was and plugged it directly into the laptop and made it a local printer. Win7 did install a different driver than what I was trying to use. Went back to wireless with the correct driver and it worked.
