HP 2101nw wireless print server

I have been using this device but after upgrading to win 7 64 bit home premium. HP has no driver for win 7 and no plans to write one. Does anyone have a driver or a work-around for this configuration? If not, can anyone recomend a device that will work with 7 and hp printers?

If there is a vista x64 driver for it, chances are it will run flawlessly on windows 7

HP support

HP support was non existant. I called HP and they only offer support via email from India, and they were useless. Originally they told me I had a defective ddevice and I should get another one. Out of desperation, I did that. The new deice did nt install either and HP-India than told me that there was no Win7 driver and I was S..out of luck! The install disk does say XP or Vista, no 7 driver.

I'm trying to find a wireless USB print server that just WORKS. I tried a TRENDNet TEW-MFP1 It's a piece of junk that requires you to use their software. I want something like an old JetDirect... I can point any printer under any OS to a raw TCP/IP port, and the print jobs come out.
