    I had no problem connecting to the Internet until I loaded HP wireless for my printer. Now I have finally reached a point where I have connection, by using both Intel Pro set / wireless and Windows control, but the connection will not open the Internet.

    go into the device manager and make sure your wireless network adaptor is still being shown in there properly. Also check for yellow question marks.

It seems like the driver files are affected and need to be replaced using the wireless network drvers. You can get them from the hp website. if you're not sure, please specify your laptop model and i'll link to to the driver download page.

I have a T-Mobile air card an HP desk jet j4660 printer and a Toshiba thrive tablet...I want to sync the 3 so I can print using my tablet...let me also say I have a MacBook that I would also like to print...


As far as I know, wireless aircards can only acommodate 1 device, I think that is included on the terms and conditions on the T-Mobile contract for that aircard. If you really want to use your printer, you need to have a hardwired connection of your printer to a PC using USB cable. Since your using a Toshiba tablet i think you cannot use your printer on that one as well because you won't be able to install the disk driver of your HP printer since the tablet doesn't have any CD Drive. But you can install it on your MacBook but then again you can only do a hardwired connection of your printer to the MacBook and not wireless.

Can't get it networked on my mac that has windows parallel xp cant find it


Hi
I recognize the importance of resolving this issue and I look forward in providing you with the necessary assistance you need.

Problem: Cannot get network on the Mac not specified
OS : MAC computer Windows installed on it
Printer Office jet 6500 Wireless.


Solution :
There are few thing which are required to know before we start trouble shooting

IMPORTANT : Before you can install the product, your wireless network must already be set up. (To set up your network, follow the instructions that came with your particular access point.)

IMPORTANT : Before you can install the product, you must have the following information about the network:
  • Network name : The network name is the SSID (Service Set Identifier).
  • Password : WEP key or WPA passphrase


For a new product:CD installation is a quick and easy method and if you do not have a CD, you can download the software you need.

CD installation : CD installation might not work if you are installing the product on a computer running a newer operating system that released AFTER the HP product released as the software on the CD is current to the date of the product release.

Downloading the HP Drivers :Downloading the software provides the best results for your older product. Even though it takes more time than using the CD, downloading the latest software can help you avoid installation issues. Downloading is also the recommended method if your computer operating system released after the HP product released. The software that you can download from the HP Web site is the most current software available for your product. HP often updates software and drivers AFTER the product and CD release to the market ..

  • Network name: The network name is the SSID (Service Set Identifier).
  • WEP key or WPA security passphrase

  • Internet access. HP recommends broadband Internet access such as cable or DSL.
  • Your wireless-capable HP product. Place it close to the computer during the installation procedure.
  • A USB cable (used only during installation).
  • Administrator privileges or password
2. Make sure the product, access point, and computer are all on, and that the computer is connecting to the wireless network.
3. Connect the USB Cable to the rear port of the HP product and to any USB port on the computer.
4. Exit all applications running on your computer.Install the software
To install the product software, follow the steps for the method that you want to use (CD or download).
Method one: Install the software with the software CD
  1. Insert the Macintosh product CD into the CD drive of the computer.
  2. Double-click the HP software disc icon that displays under the Xp/Macintosh HD icon.
  3. Double-click the HP Installer icon. The HP Installer program opens.
  4. Follow the on-screen instructions to start the installation.
  5. When prompted to set up your device and software, select Continue .
  6. If a check mark does not appear, select Configure your device for a wireless network , and then select Continue.
  7. Follow the on-screen instructions to finish installing the software
Option two: Change connection type
1. Open HP Device Manager.
2. From the Information and Settings drop-down menu, click Setup Assistant . 3. The HP Setup Assistant window opens.
4. Follow the on-screen instructions to change your connection type to an existing wireless network.

Printing through wireless


hi,

if you had the printer before using the USB cable. then you changed it to wireless, try the ff:

1. re-insert the CD the came with the box, the cd that you used to install the printer Software to your computer.
2. after inserting the cd, it will give you option "add a device".
3. click on that to install the printer driver for WIRELESS.

note: the reason why you cant print, is mainly because the printer driver you have is still for USB connection. so inorder for you to be able to print, you need to install a printer DRIVER for wireless... That should WORK..
