Drivers For HP Laser Printers [Windows 7]
I am trying to add Windows 7 drivers to my 2003 print server. Whenever I try to download drivers from the HP site I get a time out error.
Example URL that times out:
Can anyone point me toward a website where I can get updated drivers for my network?
Google searches just land me at websites that do not have anything to offer [except games and useless utilities downloads]

I get a timeout on Chrome and IE, but not Firefox? Which browser are you using?

Chrome. I will try Firefox now.

downloaded ok for me, i put it on mediafire see if you can download it from there P2055_default_install_v6.1_ww.exe

Thanks. This isn't the only driver I need though. I will take the Firefox approach and download each one in turn. The problem I am having now is getting the driver to apply properly at the server while still maintaining my XP drivers.

I have found the HP Universal Print Drivers work really well. We have a single driver for x86 and x64 installed on the server supporting all HP Lasers.

Have HP improved the login times yet? I tried the UPD last year and found if i deployed printers via GPP it increased the login times dramatically. It seemed to take some time to even install one printer.

The "Group policy printers policy" takes about 5-7seconds to install 1 HP (with UPD) and 2 Sharp MFP's on my machine.

As a tip Dave I would use Microsoft Update Catalog to source Windows 7 printer drivers, certainly the early drivers HP released for 7 caused lots of issues.

Thanks. Having a look at that now.
