SOURCE: HP Photosmart C7280 wireless connection

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.

IP address of my Photosmart C4180


HP PhotoSmart C4180 All-in-One is a not a network supported printer. This is just a USB printer.Hence you will not be able to assign or locate the IP address of this unit.
This unit supports: USB 2.0 Hi-speed in Microsoft Windows 98 SE, 2000 Professional, Me, XP Home, and XP Professional; Mac OS X 10.3 and later
I request you to use Wireless Printing Upgrade Kit (Model number: Q6259A) to connect your unit wirelessly.

Wireless


It is true the wireless upgrade printing kit will not be compatible with C1315 All-In-One Printer.
And also instead of going for a wireless upgrade printing kit you can buy a Wireless All-In-One printer for the same price and a new printer with a Year warranty as well, Check this link Bellow:
