OK, so bear with me while I summize what you've done...
You went to Add a Printer, Add a Network Printer, and having given a static
IP address to the Xerox, you let the Vista PC 'find' the printer? And then
it should just install the previously 'installed' drivers.
Yes....... or you did something different?
I have a Xerox 1650N on my network and everything works just perfectly... on
XP, Vista, Server 2008 and Windows 7.
If you're using a different method of installtion, please give further
details of exactly what you've done.
