How do I connect my HP 8250 Wirelessly? I have a router and a Linksys wireless-B adapter.


Make sure your router is set to accept Wireless-B connections...most aren't. Log into your router and setup wireless, using an SSID and security. Then connect with your laptop and you're good to go.

Where does the printer hook up to the computer


You will need to purchase a printer USB cable for this printer. They are relatively inexpensive and can be found at any store with an electronics department. I feel your pain on this issue as I find it very annoying that these peices are extra.

The flat rectangular USB end plugs into an available USB slot on your computer while the more square end plugs into the back of the printer.

Hope this helps!

I've aquired a Hp office jet 6200 series all-in-one.I have a Dell Inspiron2200 laptop.Ihave wireless internet access on my laptop.Is it possible to download from the internet what I need to know and do so...


It looks like it isn't an hp wireless printer. You can connect to the printer via a usb cord and download the software from HP if you want to. Another way is have the printer connected to a wired computer via usb and share the printer and then with the other computer on you could print pages from the wireless laptop to the printer.

MY COMPUTER SAID IT DOES NOT RECOGNIZE MY USB CORD


It will never say it doesn't recognize a USB cord.
A USB cord is just that--a piece of wire. It might tell you that it can't find the printer.
Has the printer worked before?
If you are installing it for the first time, did you install the software before plugging in the printer?
If you have done all these things, then either the USB port is bad or the printer is.
But--try uninstalling the printer first--and any software that came with it. Then reinstall the software and plug in the printer.
While I did mention that the cord is just a piece of wire, it is possible that the cord has become damaged in some way. Try using a different cord. Also, try using a different USB port.

I am not sure what device I need to hook up the printer to my com


Hi, for this model you will want to use a USB cable, it will most likely have a square connector on one end (connects to the printer) and a rectangle connector on the other end (connects to the computer) the phone jack looking thing if for an ethernet cable so you can use it as a network printer.

Officejet G85 printer


If you previously were using a parallel connection for the G85 you will need a USB cable.

If your laptop is running Vista the G85 will work as a printer, I do not think there is a scanner driver for Vista for the G85. The G85 print driver is built into VIsta, you only need to turn on the printer and install the USB to have the printer automatically installed.
