To my knowledge, the 6P isn't a USB printer, it's parallel port only. Are you using a USB / parallel port adapter? If so, I believe that's the root of your problems - the adapter.
Try hooking it directly to the parallel port (shut the PC and printer down before doing so).
Upon restart, Windows will detect it, and may or may not "know" the model, so you may have to choose it from the dropdown boxes.
If it works when directly connected, you will need to either locate drivers for the adapter (if any), or manually configure it under the printer port properties.
If you need more help, let me know. These are great little printers - once you get them to work!

SOURCE: I would like to network
What model of HP LaserJet do you have?
You will have to go into the configuration menu on the printer itself and set up the network connection.
I don't know what model you have, but here is a generic answer
Press the Menu Right until you find the HP MIO Menu - Select it. Next press the Item right button until you find the Cfg Network Card = No, - make it say yes by pushing the value right button, then push select to put an asterisk ( * ) next to it. Then press the item right button until you find Cfg TCP/IP = No, - make it say yes by pushing the value right button, then push select to put an asterisk ( * ) next to it. (assuming you are on a basic network) Last press the item right button and insert the following information.
IP Address: Not one already in use - generally 192.168.1.XXX (where XXX is some number between 2 - 253) Subnet Mask: generally 255.255.255.0 Gateway IP Address: Generally 192.168.1.1 or 192.168.1.0 or 192.168.1.254
Once you give it this information, print out the config page and it should be there. If this doesn't work, or you don't know how to find those numbers, I would be glad to help you further.

Have you tried a different driver eg. rpcs or another version of pcl?Have you checked your workstations services app to check if your print spooler is running?Also when you print a config page from the hp it will give you your network details.To eliminate your network grap a crossover cable and connect directly to the printer and test.Let me know.

Not all USB adapters are the same, you need the one that is made for your printer, I would try a different adapter before going too deep, because when you plug it in your computer should see it even without drivers.

To install the HP as a network printer you need to do the following -
1. Configure the HP's IP address so it matches the IP range of your network. eg if your IP's are 192.168.0.xxx then set the HP to a high number say 100.
2. Install the HP printer driver on your computer/s using the LPT printer port.
3. Connect the printer to the network hub/router and power up the printer.
4. Click on Printers an Faxes - right click on the HP printer and click on Properties.
5. Click on Ports and click on Add Port.
6. In available ports - click on Standart TCP/IP Port and then Configure port.
7. Tick the IP box and type in the IP address of the HP's IP address.
8. Click OK and tick Enable bidirectional support and then OK
You need to setup the HP printer the same way on every computer on your network.
You can now print from any computer on your network
