Re: printer connected but not working.
I would suggest that you disconnect the usb cable from the printer. Then uninstall all programs related to the printer through Add/Remove Programs in the Control Panel.
After restarting the computer with the printer still disconnected you can follow the directions below to download the latest drivers.
To download the drivers you can go here. When the page opens you will need to choose your operating system. Then, from the Drivers section I would choose the full feature driver.
Once you click that, you will see a Install Now button that will allow you to immediately install the software and/or a Download Only button that will allow you to download the file for later installation.
Either option will have a link below them that says View Directions which can be used to get step by step instructions for installation of the drivers.

This is non network printer, you can't print just like a network printer , but you can install the printer in local system and share it & install the drivers in desired systems through local system where printer was connected. It will work like a network printer but scanning is not possible to other systems except local system.And one more drawback is your won't get print, if local system is switched off..
If you are connected via the USB cable, the connection may be lost (or the setup which is particular to the actual USB plug itself). Try deleting the printer and reinstalling it. Don't change USB ports after the printer is installed by the way. Also we had problems with this when the printer was networked (shared) and the auto sense was on - after another person printed the local box would seize up. Try not having the printer auto sense its presence so that 2 printers show up in the network neighbourhood. Of course check that the cables are installed right and try changing USB ports.
The LaserJet 2600N has a built-in print server and can be connected to the local network (normal ethernet cable) directly. While printer sharing via Windows should work, I found it much more convenient to access it without the need of a hosting computer - you do not need to switch on the desktop PC for printing from the Laptop, for example, its also printing faster.
1. Go to Printers and Faxes
Right click on the printer u are using. Select Share this printer.
2. Set up a home or small office network with Internet connection connected, Printers on on both computers and identify both of them saperately.
For this you need to connect both computers with a cross cable.
3. after the home or small office setup is complete add a new printer from your Printer and Faxes menu. Search your printer automatically and choose it from the llist system provides and select the printer as default if needed.
4. Try taking a 'Test Printout' from the Concerned printer's properties page.
5. if this works, you have successfully installed the printer and are ready to take prints.

There is no need to install the printer software in Windows Vista.
You have built in drivers for most of the HP printers in Vista.
Just connect the printer and restart the PC.
Make sure that you are in Administrative mode.
You should not be in Guest Account or Limited User Account.

i got my dp-301u to work fine with my hp1020 on 2 different
workstations with the following steps.
1. install printer locally via usb and test. 2. create a second printer as per the dlink manual creating a port. don't worry about the name as we will delete it. 3.
once created go into the properties of the 2nd printer and change the
port to something local - anything will do to free up the port. 4. go into the properties of the printer that was created in step 1. and change the port to that of the print server. 5. test print. should work fine.
