win7 Stuck on adding a network printer

6 posts in this topic

So, here is a brief sketch of the steps I've been doing:

I have an Asus N53 laptop which came with Windows 7 Home Premium (DUTCH) installed on a normal HDD. Now, recently, I've updated to a SSD, downloaded Windows 7 Home Premium (ENG) from the net and activated it again with my key. This caused some trouble but a phone activation sorted everything.

Since I've installed the SSD, 2GB extra RAM and the English copy of Win7 64bit my laptop keeps getting stuck when adding a network printer. This happens with a WiFi enabled HP printer as with a full network printer at the office. So I'm thinking this is not setup dependent. However, adding a USB printer gives me no trouble.

Once I realize the setup isn't work, I quit the program and suddenly none of my network connections work anymore until I restart the laptop.

Has anyone any experience with these kind of troubles? This is very annoying as I need to print often en now I can only use my portable Canon IP100, costing me too much! ;)

Thanks in advance!

W.

did you move from 32bit to 64bit? Do these network printers have 64bit drivers?

Are these printers off a print server, I would assume so in an office?

Is this wifi one at your house or something - we could trouble shoot that one easier more than likely -- your not trying to use the printers adhoc wireless network are you? its just connected to your wireless network?

Some details of the printer and how your trying to install would be helpful - are you trying to pull the driver from the network, installing a local driver? What is the specific model number of the printer and the driver your trying to install
