I'm new to site. Answers would help. I have Windows 98 on home cpu and no Internet. Neighbor has Internet and I could haul equipment to his house. Per software disk for above hardware (Deskjet) I need to connect to Internet to install, estimated installation time needed: 2 3/4 hours.
I don't want to impose on neighbor's time until this is doable. I'm not familiar with needing to connect to Internet just to install software for a peripheral. Is this something new? Is there an alternative? If I use the neighbor's Internet to install, can I then print from home without Internet? Thanks all,

I see one BIG problem already according to HP's website on that printer.
Go HERE and you will see there is no support for Windows 98 and no drivers either.
I'm sure another member or Tech Staff will look at this topic but IMHO I think unless you upgrade your OS System to at least XP you may not be able to use that printer.
