    I am using a new hp g62 laptop running windows 7. It is connected wirelessly to an AT&T router and to the psus4 print server. I have upgraded the firmware of the psus4 to 7034 and configured it to print to a tcp/ip port. This is because i was informed that windows 7 will not work with the setup software that comes with the psus4.
    When first starting out, I tried to print a windows test page but was only able to get 3/4 of the page. I was then advised to change the advanced settings to "print directly to the printe". Now the entire windows test page will print but nothing else will. I was asked to type up a fairly full notepad page and try to print that. I was able to print that ok but nothing from either emails or from a website.
    As a last resort, I shared the printer and then was able to print ok going through the xp desktop that is also connected to the psus4. There is a second laptop running xp that prints normally also.

    Thanks,
    Rob Braniger

    Does the printer work OK when connected directly to the Windows 7 machine?
