Windows 7: windows 7: hp officejet 4500 network printer

windows 7: hp officejet 4500 network printer

hi. i have this printer connected to my linksys router and i am able to print from my fedora machine after yum install hplip.

i am trying to set this up on my wifes win-7 laptop. i go to start -> devices and printers -> add a device.
and after a few moments it finds the printer on my network (hpf732bo-hp officejet 4500 g510g-m).

i click next and i get a page saying that the device has been successfully installed but after a few minutes a pop-up comes up saying that the install failed:
wsd print device     (green check mark) ready to use
wsd print device     (red x)            no driver found
when i try to print using notepad the new printer isnt available as an option.

when i go to the hp site to manually install the driver, it installs all the hp bloatware but at the end it tells me to connect the usb cable to finish the install. what is the way to connect this as a network (wifi) printer in windows ?

I believe:
Since it's a network printer, you probably need to add the IP address (assigned by the router) in it's driver on the Windows 7 PC, I'm sorry I can't describe that in detail, without having one, myself.

If logged into the router as admin though it should list it's IP info there under like connected devices or similar.

Here's a page that might help:

i tried installing the driver again and at no place does it ask me about ip address. it only cares to show me animations about how to set up the paper feed tray.

thanks anyways,
