My HP C4580 won't go online

I have a laptop that's wireless and I've successfully connected my new HP C4580 printer to it wireless as well. But the problem is I can't get the printer to go on-line at all. I've tried everything but nothing works. I can print things from my desktop just fine so I know the printer is working. On the drop down menu of options there isn't even an online choice, there's only the offline. Please help.

Thank you Nadine,

yes - the plot is thickening now!

To your problem:
The printer itself will never go online. If you want to print something from the internet (a web page i.e.), your computer is establishing that connection via a web browser (Internet Explorer, Firefox, etc.), like the page you see right now.
If you want to print something, you have to choose the "Print" command form the "File" menu in your application or hit the "Ctrl" key and "P" at the same time.

In the upcoming dialog you can choose your printer and the printing preferences. Try it right now and print this page. (Make sure you select "1 to 1" in the "Print Range" options, otherwise you might end up with a lot of scratch paper...)

Did it work?

If so - any other questions?
If not, post a comment and tell me what happened.

SOURCE: wireless laptop cannot connect to network printer

Found this solution:

  1. On Vista PC go to "Control Panel" - "Printers" - "Add printer".
  2. - Believe or not, click "Add a local printer" (I know you want to add a network printer but that way it doesn't work).
  3. - Click "Create a new port" - "Local Port" - "Next"
  4. - In the next box you have to enter a port name like this:\\PC name\Printer name where "PC name" is the network name of the XP PC or Network Share where you have the printer and "Printer name" is the network name of that printer. Be careful with this names. Check in your XP PC "Control Panel" - "Printers and faxes" - "your printer" - right click - "share" - "share resources name"
  5. - Choose the manufacturer and printer model of the printer you are adding.
  6. - Now the printer will be added and you can print a test page or print something to test it.
Let me know if it's working for your config as it worked for me

SOURCE: Kodak ESP5250 "printer not responding" It is less

I am assuming that your printer is wirelessly connected to your network.
On the printer,
press HOME, press the downward pointing triangle and select -NETWORK SETTINGS
- press OK.
Press the the downward pointing triangle and select -View Network Configuration
- press ok.
Make sure that your IP address is not all zeros and that your active connection is set to WIFI.

On your computer, open a COMMAND window. (Start - Run - and type CMD). In the command window type - ipconfig and press enter. You will see IP addresses for your PC (the format is x.x.x.x where x can be a number between 0 and 255). At least the first number should be the same as the printers IP address. On a second PC, do the same thing to get it's IP address.

Next, to see if the computer can find the printer, from the command window, type PING x.x.x.x where x.x.x.x is the IP address of the printer (from above). the result will be either "could not find" or a set of results that lists REPLY times. If you dont get a reply time, try to PING the 2nd computer (PING x.x.x.x where x is the IP address of the 2nd computer).

If neither of these gives you a reply, it sounds like AVAST may not be configured to 'trust' devices on your home network. Check you documentation on how to add a trusted network to AVAST. Generally, you will have an option to add a list of IP addresses that are 'trusted'. For instance, if your printer is 192.168.1.4, and your PC is 192.168.1.2, it would be safe to add a trusted range of 192.168.1.0 - 192.168.1.255

Trying to link my acer laptop to my hp c4580 printer. dont know my SSID number. Help!


I'm assuming you're trying to do this wirelessly?  The SSID is what your wireless router calls itself.  You can find what this is by clicking on the wifi icon near the clock on your computer and seeing which one you're connected to.  I can't give exact instructions, because you didn't say what operating system you're on; but just click on the wifi and it'll tell you in one of the options.

We have a hp c4580 wireless printer and we are having problems with getting it to work. Can you please advice what to do. Bethany


Basically, you need to configure the HP C4580 printer with the same wireless settings of your network. Thus, you need to get the following information from your wireless router:

SSID or wireless network name
Type of Wireless Security
Wireless Security key/passphrase/password

To set those settings on the printer itself, you need to temporarily connect first your printer to the computer through USB. Then run the HP Printer Setup CD. It'll ask for you to install the required software then it'll ask for you to configure the printer on a wireless network. From then on, you will need to input the wireless settings that you got from your router.

HP C4580 - INSTALL PROBLEM


I don't know if you had your problen fixed, but I just bought this printer this week and was having problems setting it up with the instructions. I finally decided that I would just set it up to my laptop with the USB cable attached. The software that came with the printer was already in my computer. We'll the computer started up the software, It fully installed it, step by step. Now I have a wireless connection with the printer on all 3 of the laptops in the house. Just put the USB on your computer and on the printer. Make sure the software is installed and it will walk you through the installation. Install this way on all of your laptops. I'm so happy that I finally can print wirelessly without using the goofy instruction booklet. Good luck, hope this helps some one else.
