HP Photosmart C7280 wireless connection

How do I get a wireless connection between the PC and the printer? We've tried the wizard set up from the printer with no results.

    My HP C7280 will print through USB but won't print when using wireless connection. Instead, it shows the printer as "off-line". After spending hours trying to fix, I have resolved to using USB connection. It seems this is a major issue with this printer.

    I have to re-install the driver, then it gets recognized as online. Hokey!

My experience is different. My DSL router died in the night and I had to install the old one. I just changed the wireless settings on my C7280, and now all three connections work. If no wire (ethernet or USB) is connected, the wireless connection works. If the Ethernet cable is connected, it works via Ethernet, and if the USB cable is connected, it works via USB. It seems to default in that order.

I discussed this with an HP tech & worked on the solution myself to verify his answer &, of course, he was right!
Your printer will only recognize one connection: either wireless or hardwired but NOT both. That is why it keeps switching back to hardwired mode.

How do i set up my printer to print wirless after setting up the wireless wizard with my router


Presumably, the wizard helped you choose an SSID and a password.

On the controls on the HP printer, enter the SSID and the password,
and then the HP will try to connect to the wireless interface on the router.

Have you run the Wireless setup wizard from Printer ? If No, Press Setup button on printer front panel - Scroll till Wireless/Network settings - Choose Wireless setup Wizard and follow the directions.

After you have setup printer on network - Run the Printer s/w disk and Choose Add a Device and Choose Wired/Wireless network and continue with the Installation screen.

Can't scan to computer


I am not an expert, only a c7280 user. I use my printer wirelessly and was having problem scanning when using the controls directly on the printer (scan menu). By trial and error, I tried scanning by going to HP solution center on my computer and just followed the directions from the scan menu. That worked. If you can print wirelessly, you can scan wirelessly. I agree the HP support is a huge waste of time. I only get mad talking to them.

Download latest driver bundle (198mb) and the network reliabilty patch. Install the HP software choosing Connected via USB. Install the network reliability patch from the C7280 downloads page. Re-run the 198mb installer and choose Add a Device.

Presto! Wireless setup completes correctly.

Hi,
Hi, try updating your printer drivers:

Create a new folder on your desktop and name it newhpdrivers(substitute your manufacturer in new name). Un-intall printer and printer software completely. Go to manufacturers website and navigate to their drivers/downloads or support menu. Select your model, choose the relevant software and download to the new folder you created on your desktop. Power down your computer. Reconnect the printer to the computer and turn printer on. Power on pc. Windows will detect new hardware and ask if you have the manufacturers install cd or a location to check for install files. Direct the wizard to your new software, follow the rest of the setup instructions and your done
