HP Photosmart 3210 all-in-one by 1mooreirish
When I attempt to install printer software to enable scanning capability, I receive an error message stating that the software not compatible with my computer's operating system (Windows Vista) and instructs me to "upgrade" to Windows 2000 or XP. Is Vista not backwards compatible to XP for this purpose?

Network printer stops printing when IP address changes by 5Circles[_2_]
I'm using Vista Home Premium. I have a Brother 5170DN (direct network connection) that has been working fine with my older computers running earlier Windows versions. The trouble is that when the IP address of the printer changes, Vista is no longer able to print to it, so I end up having to reinstall.

Can't get my Canon printer on the network by 5hulses
Just got a HP Laptop with Vista...xp seems to be better so far. My problem is that I have printer sharing checked off & when I try to install my network printer ( which works fine on XP) it is telling me that it can't find it! What am I doing wrong? It seems that Vista doesn't have the icon " Network Setup Wizard" like XP has in the control panel. 1 for XP, 0 for VIsta! TIA
