The 722 may not work over any form of network connection. It is a host-
based printer, and typically didn't work because it needs direct
That said, some people were able to make it work using older drivers. I
don't know if the Vista drivers will work with a network connection.
Vista does come with DeskJet 720 drivers which will work with your 722
(physically the same, I think the difference was included software.)
Many newer printers today have networking built-in, and pretty low price
levels. Unless you already own the print server, it may be cheaper to
buy a new printer. You'll get faster speed and higher quality output,
even with the cheapest printers compared to the 722.
