when mine does that I have to restart all of the computers and the printer on that network. annoying as heck but that's the only way I've been able to get mine to work.
it prints even though solution center says it's disconnected but scanning doesn't work.
and restarting all the computers has to take place. I've tried doing just the one I'm using but it never connects. I think it has more to do with my network settings but you can try it on yours.

No go here. I have tried the restarting and it still doesn't connect or wrok. I even tried to download the corporate driver but it says I have to use the command line to do a netowrk install, but nothing tells me what the command is. This is so disappointing from HP. After this experience I must admit I am no longer a huge HP fan.

I hear ya. I like my printer but I'll never buy another one. it's been nothing but problems installing and using it from day one.
and it's 100% results of poorly engineered software/drivers.
my epson printer was a pos that once the ink dried in the print heads I had myself a $200 paper weight.
but the software was flawless, never one problem.
my lexmark printer was a pos too. tiny little ink containers that ran out in 200 pages. and once one is out you have to throw away the other 2 colors that were still 1/2 full.
again software/drivers were flawless.
my hp, printer is amazing. software/drivers are the worst thing I've ever seen in my 14 years working with computers.
