HP Officejet 6500 e710n-z driver download

If you want to download the printer or scanner driver for an HP Officejet 6500 e710n or in my case a e710n-z printer all you have to do is go here:

http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/softwareCategory?cc=us&dlc=en&lc=en&os=4063&product=4083977&sw_lang=&

What does it say about HP's website when a quick Google search only returns the forums (aka problems) and no driver download page for this search query?

This particular HP printer software is horrible. The full feature software for Windows 7 64-bit wouldn't extract, it just gave an error. I tried twice with no change. When I installed the basic print and scanner software it runs a wizard which can't find my printer even though I give it the exact IP address of printer. Worse yet if the software can't detect the printer it just doesn't install anything which means I'm left with a printer that Windows can detect and install basic drivers for but I can't use for scanning.

I understand HP is a very large organization with hundreds if not thousands of products but this lack of usable software makes me wonder if they have or use any software testers?

You were right with the points about HP, have been searching for 2 hours to install the drivers for e710n-z printer and you gave me the perfect link. Even it was very tough to enter into the chat support...god bless you.

It was installed and worked good but the phone ringing set it into FAX mode and now I can't get it back into print M. requires [SSID] of which mine has an ' or 
apost- , there isn't one like in isn't '  '  '  and I cant do it from my keyboard, have to use the printer . This has happened 20 times and takes 2 or 3 hr.'s to fix. I even put in the full WEP key of 26 # and letters. HP should eat this one.
