Assuming your J4680 is visible on the network you should be able to have it automatically installed by going to the Printers folder, Add Printer, Network Printer and let Windows find it.  You may need to use Windows Update to update the list of printers - go to Add Printer, say it is a local printer, new port, TCP/IP, select the IP address of the J4680, Next, then click WIndows Update.  It may take five minutes or more to update the list, be patient but when it completes there will be a number of new printers listed.

I have kind of the same problem. The problem is, I -was- able to network it, and it can print... but it can't scan! I'd like to use the scan function, but I have Windows 7 Beta, so I can't use the install disc. What should I do?

Try compatibility mode.

I am running Windows 7 Ultimate (build 7600), ie. the released version, and installed the software for my J4680 that way, ie. I use a Vista compatibility mode. I can scan from my laptop using the HP Solution Center and print from applications, ie. Outlook 2007/Word 2007/etc. What I can't do is to Fax from the laptop or configure the Fax settings. If I try to scan from the printer front panel I can not save to a folder on my laptop. So some things work and some do not which is kind of to be expected until the Windows 7 drivers for the printer are released by HP.

 

As always YMMV...
