to set up my remote network i followed promts from windows and then had to run my windows xp startup disc on my vista laptop.
After that was complete i had to install the hp printer setup cd onto my vista laptop and connect the hp printer to my router using the ethernet cable. I followed the prompts on the vista as the cd continued to install. then at the end of it all it showed i had correctly installed the printer via wireless and asked me to do a practice print which i did and all seems fine.
I can now print from my vista laptop and my windows xp desktop. I hope this helps
Open the Printers or Printers and Faxes folder.
In Windows 7, click Start then Devices and Printers. In other versions of Windows:
Click Start > Settings > Printers, or
Click Start > Printers, or
Click Start > Control Panel then double-click on:
Printers and Faxes, or
Printers and Other Hardware then View Installed Printers.
See How to open the Printers or Printers and Faxes folder in Windows in the Related Articles section for detailed instructions.
Right-click on the icon for your printer and select Printing Preferences.
Example: Windows Vista
This will display the Printing Preferences window.
Click on the Maintenance (or Utility) tab.
Click on Head Cleaning. This will launch the utility.
Click Start and wait for the printer to finish the first cleaning cycle.
Never turn off the printer while the On light is flashing. Doing so may damage the printer.
Click Print Nozzle Check Pattern. This procedure will confirm the effectiveness of the head clean. You can also access the print Nozzle Check option from the Maintenance or Utility menu.
The printer will print a nozzle check. Compare the print out with the next window. If there are gaps, the print out is faint, click Clean, and then Finish when the procedure is complete.
If the nozzle check prints correctly (showing no breaks in the pattern), but the text is still broken you may need to run the Print Head Alignment utility - see How do I use the Print Head Alignment utility? for assistance.
If the nozzle check is complete, click Finish.
If there are gaps or faint print on your printout click Clean.
If gaps are still present, perform another head clean (without printing a nozzle check between the cleans). Once the second clean is complete, power off the printer.
Wait one minute before powering it back on, then print a nozzle check. Compare the printout with the example window (above).
If it is complete, click Finish.
If there are gaps or faint print on your printout carry out another set of head cleans.

You have Vista this is the problem- there may be a driver issue here take a look at http://www.google.co.uk/url?sa=t&ct=res&cd=3&url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.opendrivers.com%2Fcategorycompany%2F1405%2F129%2Fmultifunction-canon-free-driver-download.html&ei=DvyBSL7IOZ3uQo-KpLYN&usg=AFQjCNExG7VOz91yswKZfouV8puBHufbKQ&sig2=gL2G5p7ndcDLosNQmPsh4w
Onmly Compaq will have the approprive driver download.
You are correct to assume a Vista compatability issue- this is becoming more evirdent with many peripherals.
By the bye- the printer is of course a rebadged Lexmark or HP or Brother [ can be either] see if you can see which and check the appropriate web site.
