I just installed a new computer at my workplace. We have a network with a name of Post. All the computers are on a LAN with an address of 192.168.254.XXX.
The new machine is windows 7 Professional. I have it setup and the printer shared. When I try to connect with an XP machine by going, start, \\192.168.254.xxx I see the printer, and I click connect. It shows up in my printer folder, but when I try and print it crashes explorer.
So I downloaded the full driver package from HP and installed it locally using an IP port. It tried again to print with the new setup. Now it goes to the printer queue and eventually errors out saying something about a downlevel document.
What am I doing wrong? I've never had this much trouble?!
