Everything I have is Apple, and working great with my Airport Extreme.  My wife, however, has a windows 8 computer.  I sold her on the wireless printing as a reason to get the sweet new Apple Airport Extreme.

Problem:

Research leads me to believe that I have to download and use Bonjour, which I have done.  Bonjour detects an HP printer, but cannot find the appropriate driver.  The actual printer is not supplied as a way to choose a driver.  It is only given as a series number, which doesn't match the printer (ex: Deskjet f4400 series, hers is f380).  I think everything would work just fine if I could locate the proper driver within bonjour.  Also, her computer doesn't have a disk drive to use and it prints fine while connected by usb directly.

Hardware)))Windows 8 64-bit)))Airport Extreme)))HP F380 All-in-one.

 

If there is any info that I am not including please tell me and I will try to add.

 

Thanks in advance to anyone that can help.

Airport Extreme, Other OS
