You can pick up a USB cable at nearly any computer store or Radio Shack.  I get mine for $1 at the Dollar store....

The Network Administrator is the person who set up your network.  For home networks this would typically be you; if it was a work environment there would likely be an IT person responsible for adding devices to the network.

What printer model?  What operating system?  Clihck the "Support and Drivers" link at the top of the page, then select your printer model.  Next choose your operating system, then select te appropriate driver for download.

I guess this piece of dodo will hit the trash.  I expected to get help from HP .  I guess another brand con't be as bad as this printer and the HP5400 I couldn't setup the last time.
