I got all the way down to making the local port:
5. Find the "ports" tab. Change from the USB port (DOT4_xxx) to the network connection. If you do not know how to change it to network connection, click "Add Port", then click "Local Port". Typed in " \\your_desktop_pc_name\your_shared_printer_name " (This is just an example.). Click OK to save it. 6. Print another test page.
any suggestions? At least I know now that I can plug the printer manually into my computer....
Thanks for taking your time...

Ok, thanks! I tried and tried and tried again until I finally typed in every little thing right, AND IT WORKED! And I learned a lot along the way, ever so grateful,

Install this drive which is for Server 2
Microsoft Windows 7 (64-bit), Microsoft Windows Server 2003 64-Bit Edition, Microsoft Windows Server 2008 x64, Microsoft Windows Vista (64-bit), Microsoft Windows XP x64
It works on the network first attempt with Windows 8 PRO

I followed Raptor833's October 5, 2010, instructions successfully for installing the PLC 5 driver on my Win7 64bit networked computer.
At the end of his instructions Raptor833 wrote "To change it to PCL6 printer driver, you will need to use the downloaded HP Universal Drivers for Windows 64 bit. I will not discuss it here."
I use the PCL 6 driver on an XP 32 bit computer, and it is more elegant (functional) than the PCL5 driver. If someone can explain or give a reference for installing the PCL6 driver on a Win 7 64 bit computer, I would be appreciative.

Can you tell me: how did this configuration deal with the problem of no supporting driver on the other network machines? Were you in fact able to print from networked computers (either Win 7 or XP)? If yes, where did you get the driver?
