anyone good with computers?
my problem, cliff notes:
old laptop crashed. got a new laptop. attempted to hook up my wireless printer to the new laptop. downloaded driver software, as i needed a windows 7 driver. everything went smoothly except it got hung up, and gave me a message that says essentially:
IP of PC is 75.68.214xxxx and IP of Printer is 192.168.xxxxx, and they are not compatible.
i went thru the troubleshooting suggesting in the manual, and no luck. i was able, though, to operate the printer just fine with the USB cable. just no wireless.
any suggestions? I don't even know what IP means, so be gentle with any responses. i'd imagine i need to make them "compatible" somehow?
HP was no help, as they want $34 to talk me through it, with no guarantee of success, and i can get a new printer cheaply if i had to.
if it matters, it's an HP laptop, windows 7, and an hp photosmart all in one wireless printer.
