Windows 7: Printing through a network

Printing through a network

Here's my setup, I've got the HP officejet Pro L7500 hooked up to my mac via USB. I've got the printer hooked up to my router. On my Windows 7 machine, I see the Mac on the network, and I see the printer. When I print something on my Windows 7 box, it shows me that I am able to print to the officejet, but when I actualy try, nothing happens. Nothing appears in the print queue.

Any idea why? Troubleshooting it turns up nothing..

Is the "HP officejet Pro L7500" only a USB device? If so you can get a USB hub and connect it directly to the MAC and the PC. If not you can get a Ethernet to USB box and connect the printer to the network directly and then both the MAC and the PC can print to it. I have had a lot of issues with PC printing through a MAC to a printer and vice versa.
