How do I connect my HP 8250 Wirelessly? I have a router and a Linksys wireless-B adapter.


Make sure your router is set to accept Wireless-B connections...most aren't. Log into your router and setup wireless, using an SSID and security. Then connect with your laptop and you're good to go.

HP Photosmart C5500 series CD will not install completely


Normal 0 Disconnect the printer or at least be sure it is turned off. I'd do both and when the CD software program asks you to connect the printer to the USB port, do so and it should again work properly.
Hope this helps. Bud
