Thank you jcgriff2,
I have already been to the HP site for Windows 7 drivers and have already set up the printer manualy on my Windows 7 machine with the driver that came with Windows 7,
my problem is the printer is attached to the XP machine not the Windows 7 machine and when I try to connect to the printer wirelessly like I did with my XP Laptop, Windows 7 has a different wizard and can't seem to find the driver when I try to add the printer to the Windows 7 machine wirelessly.
