Can I print via my wireless network with HP OfficeJet 6310xi?
We have 2 laptop PC's (OS: Windows XP) connected to our home wireless network (Router: DLink DIR-655). Our HP OfficeJet 6310xi is connected via wire to Computer A. Computer B routinely prints off of the 6310xi through the wireless network. However, I've not found a way to scan a document from the 6310xi to Computer B (that is, through the wireless network). Can it be done...and, if so, how? Thank you.

Nothing helps. Print servers are capable of connecting a multifunction printer for printing capabilities only. For scanning, you have to connect directly to the Computer or by a Multifunction printer with wireless capabilities.

You may need to open a port on your main computer and from their you need to go into the control
panel wireless net work you also need a memory stick once you have opened the wireless net work
follow the instruction their will be a box make sure you put router name in the box

You need 1) a wireless router with a USB port that supports the HP OfficeJet printer. 2) The software for your router to run a printer on the USB port. Obviously, you will need a USB A/B male end cable.Note: the scan features of the all-in-one may not work unless the printer is directly connected to the computer. Bi-directional communication is required for scanning and the router software may not support this completely.
Check the list of supported printers closely for older routers. I have a Cisco Linksys E4200 v.2. This router supports all the HP printers that I use.
If this is a new installation of the printer, first install the printer on the computer. If you have Windows 7, just connect the printer to the USB port on the laptop. This will install the OS drivers for the printer. (For Windows XP, go to the HP site and get the full software.)
Next install the wireless router between your modem and computer and set that up. (If you have DHCP (dynamic address allocation), it should be automatic. Otherwise follow the directions.) Next install the router software (for my router, it was Cisco Connect).
My next step was to launch the Cisco Connect program and connect the printer directly to the USB port on the router. In Cisco Connect, choose add a printer and find the printer connected to the router. Print a test page. (At times, I've had to reset the port that the printer is on in the Windows Control Panel Printer Properties. (For the Cisco Connect, the printer is on the DOT4 port.)
Other routers will be set up somewhat differently.
Another option is to have the printer connected to a desktop and then make it a shared printer with the wireless router communicating between the laptop and the desktop. This makes the desktop the print server, so it needs to be on when you want to print. If you have several computers with Windows, this can fairly easy to set up. Make sure that the computers are in the same Workgroup (XP) or Homegroup (Win7). Enable sharing and you are done.
I hope this helps.
Cindy Wells (who has a OJ 7000 (with ethernet port) and a LJ1320 (USB) connected to the router. Three computers talk to these printers with the laptop on the wireless network. On an older router that didn't support the printers, the laptop was the server for a previous OfficeJet and one of the desktops was the server for the LaserJet.)
to set up my remote network i followed promts from windows and then had to run my windows xp startup disc on my vista laptop.
After that was complete i had to install the hp printer setup cd onto my vista laptop and connect the hp printer to my router using the ethernet cable. I followed the prompts on the vista as the cd continued to install. then at the end of it all it showed i had correctly installed the printer via wireless and asked me to do a practice print which i did and all seems fine.
I can now print from my vista laptop and my windows xp desktop. I hope this helps
There is conflict between the Printer and Router you are using. The Router is freezing the printer connectivity to the network due to the Wireless radio ON option in the printer
There is a firmware update for your printer, Let your printer be connected thru USB and from this link, download and install the update for your printer and later try setting it up wireless, it should work.
Try connecting your printer directly to the wifi router/switch in a shared network configuration. Then go to your router settings, find the local ip address add this as the 'host'. Your settings should be as follows:
Driver : HP Mobile Printing Bearer: Socket/HP Jetdirect Access
Piont: My Home Wifi (kaba) Host : ip address of you
printer user : Blank ( tried my windows username,no
use) port : 9100 Printer Model: Officejet Printers
You will have to reconfigure your drivers on your pc as well. Mine installed as a wireless shared printer even though the printer is not wireless but I have it connected to my wifi switch for sharing and it worked fine.
Sometimes this problem occures when you install a later model wireless router.
Try installing the latest Wireless card driver on the XP computer and the LAN card drivers on the other computers except the MAC.
Hi! I will be glad to assist you in this issue. This is the link that will help you to fix the issue:
1. Installing the Product Software in Windows XP and Vista for a Wireless Network Connection (Using an Access Point) http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?docname=c01736948&tmp_task=setupCategory&lc=en&dlc=en&cc=us&lang=en&product=2512010

) You might not have to do this step, but if all else fails reset the HP
Officejet J4680 network by pressing the setup button (the wrench) go
to Wireless Menu and Press OK then go to Reset Wireless select YES and
press OK. If that doesn't work then there is another reset that I found
in the setup menu (the wrench) under Tools and then Restore Defaults. I
wound up doing both resets on my Officejet J4680
2) Power the HP Officejet off and on for good luck (again optional but might help).
3) Make sure the the wireless on the printer is enabled by pushing the
button on the left side front under the 802.11g so that the blue
wireless light turns on. (again optional, but make sure the blue
antennae light is on)
4) Connect to the HP Officejet J4680 wireless printer directly from the
MAC (this is pretty cool stuff) Click on the Airport icon at the top bar
of your mac screen, if you see the hpsetup listed then click on it, if
it is not listed then click on join other network and type in hpsetup
and click Join. This will join the mac to the Ad Hoc HPSetup network
and you can now setup the printer from the mac!
5) Important: Print a network
settings report on the HP Officejet by pressing the setup button again
(the wrench) go to Print Report and press OK, go to Network config and
press OK. If you try and print this
before you connect (step 4) you will not get the info you need in the
report, so connect first from Mac to HP then print this report.
6) fire up safari or Firefox or chrome browser on the Mac and type in
the URL that is listed on the report you just printed out. It starts
with http:// type in the http:// and the 4 numbers all together with no
spaces into the address bar in your browser and press return.
7) you are now connected to the HP Officejet J4680 via the web browser
interface. Click on Networking, then Advanced, click the infrastructure
tab and fill in the passphrase info for your router type it again to
confirm, then click apply. It should now connect and print from the
router. But below is a good video with even more detailed info:

Scanning over network usually requires software to connect. First go to the drivers page as below.
Windows Vista | Windows XP, download the latest drivers (the Full Feature one) as well as the firmware update for the OfficeJet. Plus the "Update" files that's dated newer than the Drivers.
Upgrade the firmware (this will reset all custom settings in the OfficeJet like IP address) with a USB connection.
Run the full feature installer and if there is an option for Networked OfficeJet, then tick it. Also you may need to change/disable firewall for the installer to pick up the networked OfficeJet.
Scanning over the network usually connects with a customized TCP port. And most likely the Windows "Scanners and Cameras" will not pick up network scanners unless it's been defined manually (installer can do this part).
