    I bought a new HP 2 in 1 laptop with windows 8. I downloaded the print and scanner driver and installed it. I can print just fine from my office via the wireless network. I can't scan from the printer to my computer. I even tried to use windows fax and scan feature and it tells me can't find it. I had no issues on my other computer that had windows 7 pro. Is there a step I am missing for there has got to be an easier way to do this setup.

    Muzzel1, welcome to the TSG Forums..... :D

    I checked your printer on the Windows Compatibility Center. WCC reports that it is compatible but with "Limited Functionality". WCC also states that you need to download "something" to make it compatible.

    Hope that helps.

    I did read that and then read up some more. My new HP 2 in 1 has the windows 8.1 for sure. Now my new machine does not have Ethernet slot but does have an hdmi slot and two usb slots. It says that if I install the usb my functionality might not work. Now if I instal with the Ethernet I am fine but with out an Ethernet slot how can I accomplish this?
