Can the Vista machine ping the netgear device?
I think netgear has there own port monitor for XP
Is there any information on whether the device supports LPD? If it does and
you can ping the device, create a Standard TCP/IP. You will need configure
the port in LPR mode using the queue name the device LPD supports. And
enable byte counting if needed.
