    Hows this for a problem. I have a wired cat5 network at home with an ADSL router connected to a Linksys 4 port router and AP. One of the connection in the router is my HP2575 Photo(notso)smart printer. From Internet Explorer I can enter the IP address and access the settings, I can even scan something. I cannot, however, add it as a network printer, why? It has always worked before but recently it's been up and down until now when it's down completely. I deleted it, now I can't add it. I have other PC's and it's the same. So, it's not a specific PC issue. I believe it's a Network or Printer problem, they are the only options left so I suppose that's logical.

    Any ideas?

    Are you using the latest software package from HP's web site to install the all-in-one or trying some other method?

    I'm in the process of trying that but the HP software needs more space than I had. I've just moved my pagefile so must have enough space now. I'll let you know how I get on. Thanks for the reply.
