Days to set up Wireless laptop to HP Photosmart C7280 All-in-one

Isn't there an easier way to get your personal Laptop to talk to and respond to the All-in-one?

I am so lost and need help ......
have gotten as far as the request for the WEP KEY, still trying to figure out what that is amoungst the many numbers and letter combinations mentioned.

WHY the rocket science?

Try this Update the firmware in the wireless router

Broadcast SSID(if changing security, you may want to change this)

Use WPA security(some devices won't work unless WPA security)

Mixed b and g mode

use channels 1, 6 or 11. Most devices work better on these channels

Save and log out restart everything, Routers and computers. Now connect.

Drivers can be found here

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.

How can I connect my wireless laptop to print wirelessly?


run the wireless setup wizard on the printer from the front panel menus of the printer...this would assign an IP address to the printer from the router...then use the s/w cd that came along with the printer and get the drivers and s/w installed on your computer....if you want a wireless connection it would give you approprite options

Wireless problem


First we need to check whether there is a communication between the computer and the all-in-one. Once print the network configuration page from the all-in-one and collect the IP address of the all-in-one and pste it on the address bar of the internet explorer and press enter, this should open the printers information page, if it is opened then there is a communication between the computer and then all-in-one. Now disable the firewall and antivirus and then try to install the drivers. If there is no communication then try to assign the IP address manually to the printer depending upon the computers IP address.
