    Have you actually installed the printer on the PC or is it showing as 'Auto'? If Auto it needs to be installed on the PC for this to work.

How do I connect wireless my MACBOOK & HP PHOTOSMART C4480


You need to connect your printer to a wireless router in your home/office. Once it's connected successfully, you then run the HP software on your computer and it will ask you how you want to connect to your printer. Select the option "Wireless" and then it will search your network for the IP address of your printer and then you should be able to print wirelessly to your printer.

HP has particluar issues relating to install. Essentially you cannot use plug and play.
Here is what I would do, totally uninstall the printer. Then go to HP.com and download the correct install program for yoru printer and OS. Follow those directions exactly, specifically when to plug in the printer.

If issue remains, contact HP boys directly, via chat and they can straighten you out, usually for free.

The problem is caused by you connecting the printer before the software asks you to.

Uninstall all HP software, restart the PC and start again. Do NOT connect the printer until the install prog tells you to.

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.
