Is the printer driver installed on the vista machine? You might need to install the driver as if it was local, then create a virtual tcp/ip port to print to, and reassign the printer to the tcp/ip port.

The ip address conflict is likely caused by a manual IP address that is entered into the printer that is overlapping with an automatic address that your router is giving out. Either switch your printer to DHCP so it gets an automatic address, or reserve the address in the router's DHCP list or pick a manual address to assign that is outside of the range of the DHCP server. Most router will start at address XXX.XXX.XXX.100 so if you pick an address between 20 and 40 then you should not have any more issues with conflicts.

Can't get epson Stylus nx400 to print from wireless laptops. printer connected to desktop with windows xp pro. both laptops use windows vista home premium.


As your printer is not wireless itself you need to shared the printer. To enable this goto Control Panel on your desktop, select printers, right click your printer and there should be an option for sharing. Enable sharing.
Now using your Vista laptops you should connect to your home network (in your case this is probably a wireless router, as long as your desktop is connected to this router too), goto Control Panel, printers, add printer, search for printer not connected to this copmputer (or network printer).
Hopefully the Vista laptops will then pick it up and install it correctly. You may be asked to install the correct driver for the vista machines. Windows should provide you with instructions on how to do this.
Hope this helps, www.PuterCare.com

Can't define custom paper size on HP2600n after Vista upgrade


Went to HP support web site and found the following info. The HP drivers link will take to their download site If you haven't installed the Vista Print drivers yet.

Our church bought new computers with Vista Busines two years ago and after struggling with it for 6 months went back XP Pro. This was before any Vista service packs had been released so I'm not sure if these issues have improved. We are in no hurry to upgrade to Vista. Some articles I've read about 6 months ago recommended waiting for windows 7. I haven't followed how the release of windows 7 is going. Vista is a VERY DIFFERENT ANIMAL and can be frustrating. Been there and I feel your pain.

I have a new Compaq laptop running Vista home and an old samsung 4216f. I tried a parallel to usb and cannot get the printer to work. No parallel ports on laptop and no usb on printer. Any ideas?


If you have a home network, try a Print Server with parallel port. You will connect the printer to the print server via parallel, and the print server to a network hub/switch/router (any of the listed) via a network cable, and the computer to the hub/switch/router via network cable or wireless.

Cost should be around $20 - $60 depending on make/model.

Printer Sharing


Hi jammin dave,

There are certainly known issues with sharing a printer installed on an XP machine to a Vista machine. First question is whether you have Windows Live OneCare installed. This in itself causes known sharing problems.
