sorry for another printer problem post but I'm still having issue and would like to resolve it :)

1. HP DeskJet 5650 printer
2. Lynksis 4 port wired Print Server (PSUS4)
3. MacMini

I decided to get print server since I had so much trouble to make my Mini to print when its connected to another PC. Now I have configured the print server and all the PCs and Mac can see it (in a PC case I had to install IPP, so the connection path looks like this "http://100.0.0.100:631/ipp/P1" then you would just give it the printer drivers from CD and it works) now on Mac I can see the Printer/Print Server but when I'm adding it thru AppleTalk its printing blank paper and tells me that it failed to find drivers. I installed latest Mac drivers for Mac OS X and its says that drivers installed successfully but there is no listing for my printer in HP printer list and I don't know where the drivers are been installed (location) I assume its MacHD -> Library -> Printers -> HP -> Deskjet.
I tried different configurations and nothing seems to work. Does anybody have any suggestions?

EDIT: I found this http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?lc=en&cc=us&docname=c00263384&product=304445&dlc=en&lang=en link to HP support on similar issue do you think this might help?

I thne usually choose the IP Protocol since its more of a standard than the others that can be chosen. Then leaving the drivers as generic, it can sometimes work just as good as having the correct drivers installed and connected.

I tried that as well, no luck in my case :mad:
