Hi
Do you have a wireless-network setup or are you trying to connect directly from your laptop to the printer wirelessly?
If you have a wireless-network, you need to run the Wireless Setup Wizard from the printer's front panel (press Setup, then select Network, then Wireless Setup Wizard) to connect the printer to your wireless network.
If you don't have a wireless-network, you'll need to connect your laptop to the printer using the printer's Ad-Hoc wireless network. To do this, turn on the printer's radio (select setup, then select Network, then Radio and select On).
Finally, run the setup program from the HP printer SW CD to finish the installation.

Your printer is wireless. If you already installed the software and can print via USB connection. Then all you need to do is add a device using the cd. But before that, make sure that the printer is connected to the router first.
Two ways to connect printer to router. You either use an ethernet cable to connect the 2 hardware. That will be more stable. Or run wireless wizard on your printer by pressing setup>network> run wireless wizard. Check if it is detecting your network. Connect to it. It would then say connected to network. To confirm that it is, print a network configuration page. Press setup again> network> view network settings> print network configuration page. Locate the IP address. Then on your computer open internet explorer and access it's graphic interface by typing the IP address inside the address bar. (where you see htttp://www..) if you pulled up info about the printer then it's time to load the cd again. THis time choose add a device then choose connection type network.
Thanks for contacting fixya.com

I cannot make my Toshiba laptop communicate with my Hp j6480 printer.


At first, you could check your usb port to see if you have some hardware connection problems. The usb connection could be loose. Then, make sure you have the printer driver properly installed on your laptop. You may need to follow the printer quick setup guide.

If you have the cd installer for your printer, try to install the driver for scanner... don't forget to disable first the connection of your printer from your computer when installing the driver...

If you don't know the location of the driver, try browsing first the cd installer..

Wireless printing


hi vlewis, if you are trying to print directly from your Pavillion to your Officejet wirelessly, you should set an AdHoc type of connection. but if you have a wireless router that you are connecting to, you should have an Infrastructure type of wireless connection. here are some key points you may need to look at.

AdHoc (PC to Computer wireless printing)

1.make sure that the wireless adapter on both devices are turned on.
2.the wireless network name or the SSID should be the same with both devices.
3.you will have to set the same wireless security (like WEP or WPA depending on the capability of the devices)
4.install the printer drivers and utility and make sure that your printer utility shows connection to the computer

-voodoomox

i will follow this one up for infrastructure.
