    I have a wireless network Using an Airport extreme.
    I print though the Airport extreme using the USB connection on it.
    My Dell Lap top with Windows XP has no problem printing this way. (Using

    I also have two newer HP lap tops (pavilion DV 6000) running Vista.

    With teh computer using Vista I can see the printer, but it will not print,
    sometimes it prints a half a page and then gets stuck.

    I have Called HP, they have run all the test they can think of and they say
    it's not them,
    I have called Apple, and they say its not their Airport Extreme.

    It works fine with Win XP.

    I have tried several combinations of turning off Fire wall, and Virus
    protectors, File sharing etc.

    Does anyone else have any ideas??

    Thanks in advance.

    Hello all. I was wondering if one/some of you gurus could help me out.
    I am running a new wireless network with a pc running WIN XP, an HP PS
    2210 All-In-One, and an Apple Airport Extreme (router). It has taken m
    forever to figure out how to get the printer associated with the correc
    driver (it now is and fully up to date) and to print through the networ
    but that stage is complete. I am now trying to figure out how to mak
    the additional features of the printer available on the network. Thos
    being, the media card reader and scanner.

    When the printer is connected directly to the pc My Computer shows
    removable media drive and camera/scanner for the printer. However, whe
    the printer is connected over the network, I cannot find these anywhere
    I'm wondering if this is another setup issue or if I'm simply lookin
    in the wrong places

    Any thoughts/ideas would be greatly appreciated

  3. You'd have to check with HP as to whether those additional features are
    network enabled. Most scanners are NOT networkable, so you might also want
    to connect the printer to your XP PC or Vista PC with a cable for the
    occasions when you wish to use the scanner and card reader. If you are
    specifically looking for a networkable scanner, other than very large
    commercial units that companies lease rather than purchase, Epson make a few
    standalone units, they start at around $3,000, so generally it's a lot less
    $s to buy a few standalone scanners for your network.
