Question about HP Photosmart C6180 All-In-One InkJet Printer

1 Answer

Want to start using Hp Officejet 470 no instructions w/mac

I do not have the instructions or information about this printer as it was a gift.  I have the plug in and it says it is a wireless network printer.  I tried adding it on to my mac but it didn't have this particular printer as an option to add.  So far I have been unsuccessful in adding this printer.  Please advise....Do I need to use the USB cord or will it work wireless?  How can I set this up with my mac a.s.a.p?  I have a lot of homework due and need this set up soon.....thanks!!!
