HP Color LaserJet CP1518ni & Windows 7 via network

I have a HP Color LaserJet CP1518ni connected to the network, not via a USB cable. How to I setup this printer so I can print to it from my WIndows 7 machine? Will HP be coming out with anything other than the Universal Print Drivers for this printer? If so, when?

You can either try Installing the HP Universal Print Driver or Installing the Product Driver Located in the Windows 7 Operating System. The detailed steps are documented in the below weblink:

Those instructions are for connecting via usb. This printer is connected to the network, not to a computer.

As we know that the drivers on in Windows Update listing.

 

Click Start, Devices and printers, add printer > add Network printer >  Follow on screen instructions (Do not let the system detect) > choose brand and model > Windows Update > Select HP and HP Laserjet CP1518NI

Thank you. While your instructions weren't exactly right, I was able to install a printer driver and get the printer working.

 

Of course, this is just the universal print driver. Is HP going to come out with a print driver package for Windows 7? If so, when?

The full feature download for your printer supporting windows 7 will be available for your product in late January 2010.
