HP Deskjet D1341 does not work with Linksys Wireless-G Print Server

Last night, I installed a new HP Deskjet D1341 inkjet printer into my office. I managed to get it to work on my computer. But when I plugged the printer in my Linksys Wireless-G USB Print Server WPS54G, it doesn't work. The computer could find it, but could not talk to the printer through the network connection.

I know the print server works, because I've been using it with my Canon Pixma iP3000 for the past year or so.

Has anyone had any experience with the HP Deskjet D1341 and an USB print server?

I noticed that on the HP site, there are two sets of drivers for the D1341 printer: 1) HP Basic Driver and 2) HP Full Software and Driver. I wonder if its HP's other software that are causing the problem. I noticed that in printer properties, it would bring up HP's own software rather than the stardard printer driver page. I'll have to try removing everythign and installing the HP Basic Driver to see if it works.

It didn't work. I removed all of the HP software and installed the HP Basic Driver. But when I tried to add the printer, I got "The data area passed to a system call is too small" error message (see screen capture below). Anyone know how to get around it?

Ok, I finally got the HP D1341 printer to work with the Linksys WPS54G. It turns out that you must run the Linksys Setup Wizard. You can't simply select the printer via "Add a printer". The Linksys Setup Wizard will set-up the printer on a "Standard TCP/IP Port" and copy the necessary files to your computer.

Ok, I just had to go through the entire install process again for my wife's notebook computer. It turns out that you have to "Add a printer" first, before the Linksys print server software will even let you associate its driver to the printer driver. Around and around I went until I finally got it to work.
