It's not quite that easy, it's a compatibility issue. If your HP printer has Air Print compatibility, you can use Air Print, if not, Download, in the iPad app store ,a free app for HP printing. Follow instructions

Can't print with my Ipad 2 over the wireless network


That's probably an incompatibility issue between the iPad and printer. Router is most likely not to blame.

HP Photosmart C4780 and Acer Aspire fight over web-based printing!


Try hard-wiring your laptop to the router with an ethernet cable as a test and then try printing, if you do not loose connection to the internet then the problem is probably that the printing is hogging your wireless bandwidth.
If the same thing happens with loosing connection to the internet try connecting to the internet real quick through another computer that is hardwired, you want to find out if the problem is a wireless one or that affects wired computers also. You might need a driver upgrade, you also might need to upgrade the firmware of the router

Hp photosmart won't print in color


Blocked print head nozzles
Inkjet printers need to be used frequently to prevent blocked print head nozzles. You may have blocked print head nozzles.
Try the printer maintenance to clear the printer nozzles.
After several deep cleaning attempts and there is no improvements in the print then a new print head is required.
A new print head maybe expensive and it maybe more cost effective to purchase a new printer.

What do I need to make my printer wireless?


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.

(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.)

I have a problem with my HP LaserJet P2015dn. When a print job is sent to the printer, it will not print unless I turn the printer off and then back on. This printer is used on a small business network.


This is a common issue with these printers and it is usually one of two issues:

1. The formatter is failing. HP used to replace them free of charge because of on going defects, but that program has expired due to age of machines.


2. Some business class routers such as CISCO, will lose track of the printer becuase HP products do not constantly broadcast their IP address. If you are using a CISCO product you can try entering a static enterly into the ARP table of the router to see if that fixes the problem.

If you are not using CISCO network gear then it is more likey option 1

I have an ipad and bought a hp c310 wireless printer to allow me to print. It was working well until i upgraded my router to dir 825. now my ipad does not recognize my printer. Once i reset the new router...


As of right now printing from the iPad is only "officially supported" by like 4 types of HP printers. I am not sure if yours is one of them (it is the newer ones for now). There are some tricks you can use (extra programs to install) that should allow all printers. Do you have a mac or a PC? If you have a mac follow this guide and it should work for you....

My HP printer will not print pages from the desktop. I ran a test report from the printer itself and it said that the Access point could not be found and that it was in fact turned off. How do I fix this?


If this problem arises check for updated printer drivers, compatibility between your wireless printer and Windows Vista and firewall settings. All or any of this could prevent your HP wireless printer from printing documents. Setting up wireless printers is very easy; however, sometimes certain settings can create hassles for you. get more help for HP Wireless Printer Problems.
