Re: Printer Setup Problem
I've tried setting it up using the installation disks that came with the
print server and manually setting up a TCP/IP port (duplicating my XP
settings). As for it being "Vista ready", I have plugged the printer
directly into the computer (USB) and Vista installed the drivers and had me
printing in less than 2 minutes!
