HP m8067c Machine Specs:
As mentioned, indicated above, I/we changed from Vista to Win7 and finally to WinXP ... all in the name of peripheral compatability. I purchased a Windows XP Media Center online and installed it. Unfortunately, not all the drivers were there... and we seem to have some speed issues.
Later: Ok. The speed issue was mainly my fault. Had to load the software for the Netgear PS110 and then choose the correct port and all. Now prints fast.
Keyboard and Mouse
The keyboard and mouse are both wireless. However, my wife did not like either and we put back her previous items. A corded mouse and a corded KB.
Now then this gets interesting. In order for this mess to work, you must install
the cp1700 drivers -AND- the PS110 Printer Server Software. Then use the Netgear Printer Server to setup
the printer. The server is PSD55465 and the printer port is PSD55465_P1 for the first parallel port. Any
other way is to slow!!
Replaced: As noted above, we got an newer up-to-date printer, an HP Photosmart 7520 All-in-One.
BCM5701 Gigabyte Ethernet Driver.
The BCM5701 is a fully integrated 10/100/1000BASE-T Gigabit Ethernet Media Access Control and
Physical Layer Transceiver solution for high performance network applications. The BCM5701 is a
fully integrated solution combining triple speed, IEEE 802.3 compliant Media Access Controller (MAC),
PCI 2.2 and PCI-X 133MHz bus interfaces, deep on-chip buffer memory, and integrated physical layer
transceiver in a single device. The BCM5701 is fabricated in a low-voltage 1.8um CMOS process providing
a low-power system solution. By itself the BCM5701 provides a complete single-chip Gigabit Ethernet NIC
or LOM solution.
It was a BEAR to find this driver. Good Luck in the future. You must jump thru hoops and holdyou tounge on the left side. There are a bunch of companies out there wanting to find all the drivers for you... for a price, naturally. -But- I am changing this from a Vista machine to an XP machine and the drivers, for the most part, are not readily available.
Hmmmmmm... still couldn't install it!!
This one is really strange cause ... I am connecting to the Internet through my local network. So what's this for??

PCI Simple Communications Controller
This is essentially a modem. Still having trouble but at this time it is not all that important. We're not using the phone for data communications.
