Printer Setup Trouble
I am having trouble setting up my printer on my Vista machine. The HP DeskJet
5550 is connected through a WPS54G prtin server and a WRT54G router. It works
fine through my two XP machines. I've tried running the setup wizard as well
as setting it up manually. Can someone please help? Thanks!

John
