Connection on HP Photosmart C4580 Keeps Dropping

Hi there,

I brought a 2nd hand HP Photosmart C4580 printer late last year for printing via wifi. It was a real bugger to set up however but eventually I managed it.

However after a few hours, the connection dropped and nothing I could do would get it back apart from having to re-install. And then reinstall...and then reinstall when the connection dropped time and time again.

I have got both XP and Vista Home Premium on my computers. Have tried installation with anti-virus and firewall switched off and have emailed HP for help to no avail. Now it is plugged in via usb which rather defeats the object.

Has anyone got any ideas?

TIA
Belcanto
