Maybe your software for the printer needs to be updated. I have a HP 3100
series printer/copier/scanner and a similar network setup. The HP site
provided updated software when I installed the printer for the Vista
computer. I just checked mine, and taking the printer offline, then putting
it back on worked as expected.
