Customer Question

Hi, I have an HP 8600 officejet pro. I just purchased a dell laptop and need the printer and scanner to work with the laptop. I can print but not scan. I downloaded the drivers but I do not have the disk to get it working with all the bells and whistles...(scanning). I need help!
Thank you

Where did you get the number? Did you see it on the computer, on the printer, or somewhere else?

I don't understand how you would get the IP address of your local printer from online. Is that how your other computers are setup; to connect to the printer by IP instead of by hostname?
