I am trying to set up a HP LaserJet 5000GN printer with a direct wired ethernet connection to my Samsung R519 laptop running Windows 7.
The printer is checked as compatible with Windows 7 (32 bit), I have the recommended HP Universal Driver
installed and the TCP/IP port and printer TCP/IP address set up. The LAN network device is enabled. I did notice that Windows could not detect the printer during the set up routine however.
When I try to print, the document spools OK in the print queue and the port address is shown however after about a minute, a printing error is shown.
What am I doing wrong? This arrangement worked fine on my old laptop running Windows XP.
