No printer driver installed. If your computer cannot find the printer there is no driver. Look in windows registry to see if your printer is there, WARNING do not change anything in the registry, IE windows regedit. Start, windows directory, regedit, software. If its not there reinstall.

We cannot connect the pro l7680 printer wirelessly. Connect the printer to the router via ethernet cable and connect the desktop to the router wirelessly.

SOURCE: Cannot print with wirelessly networked printer

hi,

if printing from 2 other computer works fine, will i think its not an issue of IP address which changes somehow. but anyways, try to check if you still have other printer drivers under "PRINTERS" (see control panel). it should say HP Photosmart c6100 series. If you also have there a printer icon that says HP Photosmart c6100 series Copy1, try using it (right click on that icon and choose Set as Default Printer). If you only have HP Photosmart c6100 series under PRINTERS, try to right click, then choose properties. When Properties box is open, click on PORTS tab. then click on configure ports below. Try to type in the IP address of the printer under "Printer Name or Host name or IP address". make sure that you already printed network configuration page to get the exact ip address of the printer, Dont know how to print? do this.

PRINTING NETWORK CONFIGURATION PAGE
1. press setup, then scroll down and look for Network.
2. press okay on network, it will give you the first option "VIew network settings".
3. press okay on it, and it will give you the first option "Print network configuration page."
4. choose that and press okay. it will print the network config page. from this document, you will be able to see the IP address of the printer.

Please let me know if the issue is still not resolve so that i can go ahead and give you another possible solution.

Thank you so much.

SOURCE: HP printer cannot find access point and I'm not sure what to do.

You must first connect your printer to the pc using usb cable, then run installation wizard that is on the CD that came with the printer.

Wizard will guide you through the setup orcess where you will provider your routers ssid (linksys) to your printer, and your printer will use that ssid to connect to your router.

After the Wizard setup is done, it will tell you to disconnect the usb cable and only then your printer will work on wireless.

Good luck,
Milan

HP photosmart c309 printer continues to not print or will only print the header and stops printing. How do I fix it?


Network troubleshooting
If you are encountering issues using your HP Photosmart over a network, try the following steps in the order listed:

  1. Turn off the router, product, and computer, and then turn them back on in this order: router first, then the product, and finally the computer. Sometimes, cycling the power will recover a network
    communication issue.
  2. For wireless networking issues, run the Wireless Network Test from the product control panel.
    1. Press Setup.
    2. Press the down arrow button until Network is highlighted, and then press OK.
    3. Press the down arrow button until Wireless Network Test is highlighted, and then press OK.
      The Wireless Network Test prints.
    If a problem is detected, the printed test report will include recommendations that might help solve the problem. If you need to change the network settings on your product or have never run the Wireless Setup Wizard, do so now.
    Double-click the HP Solution Center icon, click Settings, click Other Settings, select Network Toolbox, and then select the Wireless Setup Wizard link.
  3. If the previous steps do not solve the problem and you have successfully installed the HP Photosmart Software on your computer, run the Network Diagnostic tool.
NOTE: The diagnostic test might prompt you to connect a USB cable between the product and your computer. Position the product and computer near each other and have a USB cable readily accessible.
To run the Network Diagnostic tool. In the Solution Center, click Settings, click Other Settings, and then click Network
Toolbox. On the Utilities tab, click Run Network Diagnostics.If you are unable to run the Network Diagnostic tool or it does not help solve the problem, check the following sections for additional information:

  1. Make sure that the computer is connected to your network
  2. Make sure that the product is connected to your network
  3. Check to see if the firewall software is blocking communication
  4. Make sure the product is online and ready
  5. Make sure the HP Device Discovery software is running

My built in wireless network adapter is no longer detecting any networks. It is an hp pavilion dv 2500. Is there a way to fix this problem; do I need a new adapter? If so, where can I get one?


The new hp units have a touch switch on the top panel. It should be blue when on, otherwise it is orange/yellow. Just touch the icon to change the status from off to on, then check for networks.

The paragraph below is from the hp website on wireless unit problems:

The power to the wireless network and bluetooth devices is controlled by a switch or button on most computers. It is quite common to accidentally bump the button and turn off the wireless service. On most computers there is an LED light that glows blue when there is a wireless device is turned on and enabled.

This is the link to that site:

I can not get my HP Officejet J4680 Inkjet Printer to work on wireless. Can only use with USB cable. I no longer have my Setup CD. Any suggestions?


First check that your antivirus and firewall software are not blocking the print jobs. Do this by turning off the services for a few minutes. If you can print, check for a setup option of trusted machines. If that doesn't help, make sure you have a strong wireless signal between the computer and the printer with no interference from other appliances (cordless phones, microwaves, etc). Also check your settings to make sure the printer and computer are set for the same wireless network profile and security settings.

For additional information, try the user's manual: http://h10032.www1.hp.com/ctg/Manual/c01770356.pdf

I hope this helps.

(I have generally preferred printing with a wired connection (USB) over using a wireless networks. I've always spent more time on printer problems that were directly linked to the network signal loss problems rather than printer issues.)

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.

How to hook up this printer wireless to my main computer


Hi jjank740;

First off, did you try to recycle your printer? Turn it off and back on again. Sometimes power outages can disconnect that printer. If that doesn't work. Go to the printer and access the system network configuration on the led panel. Type in the WEP number and password again, and let it search for the connection. That should do it. Once it's connected you'll see the blue wireless indicator turn on.

Good Luck

Mark
