Installing a Printer on wireless laptop on a home network

By aruedi ·
I purchased a miniDell. I have an HP C6380 All-In-One printer on a home network. I have two other laptops and a desktop on my home network. I went to install the printer on my miniDell and my HP model is not listed. Can't use an install CD since the miniDell does not have CD capability. I tried a couple of the other HP models listed, but they did not work. How do I determine what other models are compatable or is there another option?

Could always share the CD drive from one of the other machines. When you are asked for the location of the printer drivers, browse off to the shared CD drive.
