The usb port on the printer seems not to be working. It keeps saying unknown device regardless of the different usb cables i have bought. Can install the printer directly thru the Ethernet port on the printer? If so, please tell me how.


Hello,
The first thing to establish, is the problem with the printer on the USB controller on you're laptop/computer. Have you got any other USB devices that are functioning on you're laptop/computer?

As regards to getting your printer working on a ethernet port follow the following instructions.

1. Connect the printer into the back of you're router, using a ethernet cable.

2. Run the installation disk for you're printer, and when promoted select the "network installation" option. If you do not have the disk you can go to the following address:
http://www8.hp.com/uk/en/support-drivers.html
and type in the make and model to download the latest software/driver installation package.

3. You should just be able to follow the wizard on wither of the installation methods and complete the pritner setup.

iam trying to set up a photosmart D7360 to work in my home for all PCs so I'd like to set it up wireless. I'm currently using a router. How do I start? I have a brand ne HP lap top and the photosmart is in the box never used? I have several PCs and I'd like them all to have the capability to print using wireless. Can you help?


HP Photosmart D7360 is Not completely Wireless Capable, However if you want to make it Wireless, You will have to use HP bt450 Bluetooth Wireless.

However since this printer has Ethernet Port, you can still make this printer wireless.

You will have to connect this printer thru Ethernet cable ( network cable ) to Router ( this is called wired networking )

Once you have connected the printer to Router, insert the disk in CD Drive and start the installation process, It will prompt you to choose the type of Connection, Choose Wired/Wireless Network and continue with further installation to complete.

How this works,
With any PC that is connected Wireless to Router, You will be able to print wireless from the PC to Printer.
