HP 6980, cant go wireless with Vista
Am able to print via cable (thank God), but HP is saying they wont have an
applicable bluetooth driver out for Vista until..........are ya
ready......JULY 2007!
Everyone and their brother, techie or not, has known that MS Vista was
coming out this Feb, and HP surely, despite SEVERAL inquiries, assured me
that this printer would work with Vista wirelessly, so why wouldnt they have
been ready for the roll out with Vista drivers??????

I cant use any of the software backed features of this snazzy new printer
until the drivers are released, but I had little choice but to buy a new
printer as my old 952C was 8 years old and making aweful noises.

Thanks for the vent!

Re: HP 6980, cant go wireless with Vista
You're not the only person in this situation with an HP unit..... I'd just
try to be patient until the software is updated. Yes, they've known about
Vista for a long time, they probably were heavily involved in the beta
testing, but communication between departments may not have been up to
scratch. And July is only 5 months away.
