Hm, what do I do then? We have several PC's here in the network.

 

No possibility to use the printer via the NAS as I did before with Windows 7?

The  windows 8 drivers is located here:

 

Laserjet 1600 product page

 

You will have the choice of full solution or USB. Choose which driver best suits your needs.

 

I am not familiar with the NAS acronmyn. However if this is some type of server device, you might try the Hostbased Basic driver update package.

Re: Windows 8 Printer Driver for HP Color LaserJet 1600

No success so far.

 

I cannot make the printer work under Windows 8 no matter what I do. It worked well under Windows 7.

 

I use HP Color LaserJet 1600.

 

I download the driver, but nothing happens.

 

Or should I download the firmware?

 

I cannot find out what to do next after having downloaded.

 

I have the other machines in the house hooked up to a NAS (http://www.readynas.com/), and I need to use the same system here, not USB, but through the NAS, that is the network in the house.

 

Regards

Re: Windows 8 Printer Driver for HP Color LaserJet 1600

First, if you understand the principle of how to hook your printer to the NAS device in windows 7, you should be able to apply these same priniciples to the windows 8 OS. You will need to find the appropriate screens and see how the printer is currently hooked up and somehow change that to a standard TCP/IP port or whatever the settings were in windows 7.

 

Second, you can post on Netgear forums, as they have more experience with their NAS device and see if they have additional tips.

 

Please understand that since we aren't fimilar with this device, this is about as much help that we will be able to provide. Our drivers for this particular laserjet are our plug and play which will require a USB cable.

 

Hope this helps,

Re: Windows 8 Printer Driver for HP Color LaserJet 1600

Hello again, and thanks for trying!

 

I've already contacted Netgear, the NAS company, but they give me the same answer that you do.

 

It seems the problem doesn't have anything to do with the NAS, but is general.

 

When I try to install the software I get: "Printer software doesn't work anymore" (translated from Norwegian). No further explanation.

 

Any idea?

 

Regards

PS: I've also tried forums, but no success so far, will try again

Re: Windows 8 Printer Driver for HP Color LaserJet 1600

My only other suggestion would be to plug the printer directly into a computer  then share it out from there.

 

Unfortunately, we do not test these printers with the set up that you are working with so have limited knowledge in what you are trying to do. I did notice that Netgear has forum boards so I would suggest posting your question over there and seeing if someone there can help you.
