    Hi, I have a printer (HP J6480) connected to 2 desktops and one laptop. One of the desktops and the laptop are wireless connections. Everything worked fine in Win XP, but since upgrading to Windows 7 Home Premium, the desktop with the wireless connection (HP Touchsmart) seems to randomly lose the printer. It disappears out of the printers and devices list...just the fax option is still listed, not the printer. Seems to happen most often after an automatic Windows update.
    Reinstalling works..but only for awhile, and then it disappears again upon a future bootup (but not always). Other two computers with Win7 don't have this issue). When the printer is listed, it works fine. This is very frustrating...can anyone help me?
