Question about HP Photosmart C4580 All-in-One InkJet Printer
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.
