    I just got two new computers - the desktop is running Windows 7 64 bit. I installed the printer (HP Color LaserJet CM1312nfi MFP) just fine - of course it's direct connect. It had previously been connected through my router as well and was shared just fine. My netbook is running Windows 7 32 bit. I installed the software (and I *think* the drivers?) and ran the setup. The computer found the printer, no problem, had the correct IP, the computer shows it's ready and online. But no printing. It just sits in the task tray forever until I cancel it.

    The desktop printer properties say it's set up for sharing - i.e. box is checked - but also says users need a password? I never set up a password (obviously my netbook is online via secure password). Also says the printer won't work if the desktop is asleep. Really? That's weird. What did I do wrong? Thanks.
