Direct Connection

To use this print driver package with a direct USB connection, a USB Print port must have already been created by a previous install.
For Windows 2000, XP, Vista, and 2003 Server, there are several direct USB installation options to establish a USB Print port:

  1. Use the installation software first from the in-box cd to perform a typical or express install.
  2. Download the Full Solution which provides install options identical to the in-box cd
  3. Download the PCL6 Plug and Play Scan/Print Driver Solution which provides the same features as a minimal install using the in-box cd.
Once a USB Print port is created by a previous direct USB installation, the print driver in this package can then be setup using that USB Print port.

To install to an existing USB Print or network port:

  1. Open the Printers Folder (Click Start, Settings, then Printers or Printers and Faxes).
  2. Click Add Printer.
  3. Click Next in the Add Printer Wizard.
  4. Select Local Printer or Local Port then click Next.
  5. Select the appropriate port.
  6. Select HP from the list of manufactures.
  7. Select HP LaserJet M1522 PCL 6 if you have the HP LaserJet M1522 model. If there are multiple entries for the driver that matches your printer model choose the one with the most recent date. Then click Next.
  8. Follow the remaining instructions in the Add Printer Wizard to complete the driver installation.

Network Connection

The print driver in this package can be used with a TCP/IP network connected printer.

If the printer has already been setup with a network connection, this package can be used to install an additional driver with the Windows Add Printer Wizard program.

  1. Direct the Add Printer Wizard to the already existing network port and for the new driver under the manufacturer dropdown HP, and from model dropdown M1522 PCL6.
  2. If there are multiple entries for the driver that matches your printer model choose the one with the most recent date. Then click Next.
  3. Follow the remaining instructions in the Add Printer Wizard to complete the driver installation.

If this package is to be used with a network connected printer that hasn't been setup previously, direct the Windows Add Printer Wizard to create a new local port and then create a new "HP Standard TCP/IP Port" or a "Standard TCP/IP Port".
