    Good Morning All:

    I have a Mac Pro which I just upgraded from Leopard to Snow Leopard. I have an HP Multi-Function 2840 hooked up to the router via ethernet. This printer previously worked through Leopard.

    Now, my understanding is that for SL, the drivers for this printer are in the operating system and can not be downloaded from HP.

    How do I set this up as a network printer? I would like to be able to print from my other computers in the house as well.

    Please Note: Snow Leopard only provides drivers for the printing function of this machine. I am going to have to revert to other means to use this device to scan.

    Thank You all for your time. PRH

    Who told you that HP does not have MacOS X 10.6 drivers for your printer?

    I don't see the drivers in there.

    I see the word "Description" written in white Letters with a Pink background, and a link directly under that. That link takes you to the same page I sent you.

    Are you seeing something I don't see?

    OK. According to the Obtain Software link, the HP print driver included with MacOS X 10.6 supports both wired and wireless network connections. Have you used the Print & Fax preferences pane to setup your printer?
