I have a wireless network at my home. My laptop and the HP Printer both show up as being online on the network. I cannot get the printer to print. Any suggestions?

how is the printer connected? is it by wifi or are you using a usb cable? if its wifi that you are using you may try reinstalling the hp printer software. From time to time hp printers say they are online but you may be still unable to print. A software reinstall normally fixes the problem

Try to reset your printer's wireless network adapter. From the printer operator panel, press the Setup button > Network Setup > Reset Network Adapter to Defaults. The WiFi light on your printer will momentarily turn off then on to a solid orange light. You may then run the printer wireless setup utility on your computer to configure the printer for wireless connection.

Base from the description of your problem this is some kind of issue with the software , and according to you already tried uninstalling and reinstalling.

So if you have not done reinstalling using the software from HP site better reinstall the softwrae using that and check if that corrects the issue.

How do I set up to print wirelessly with a Canon MP 620 Printer?


Thank you for your query

To share your printer you will need to do the following

1) On your desktop Click on Start>Control Panel>Printers and faxes
2) Right click on the printer in question and click on sharing
3) Put a dot in 'share this printer' and give it a name

This has now made your printer a shared one on the network

On your Laptops click on Start>Control Panel>Printers and faxes
2) Click on Add printer
3) On the resulting screen put a dot in the option 'A network printer, or printer attached to another computer'
4) Then follow through and the printer you named on your network

This will add the printer to your laptop and will allow you to print

Do the same for the other laptop

I hope this has been useful

Problem printing to Aticio 3235C from new HP laptop networked through office server. Other laptops work fine. This laptop worked fine until a month ago when it stopped saving Valid Access code. So now...

There are a couple of steps to be performed to verfiy whether your laptop is handshaking with the newtwork printer. First assign the printer with a Static IP address. This information is provided in the administartor guide of the printer.This setting can usually be found in the network settings of the printer.
Please set the subnet mask, and the default gateway. This info is found in your PC. Click start, Run, type in CMD, and new black window will pop up, type ipconfig/all press enter, this will show all the network information you will need for this. This was the printer communicating with your PC from the printer.Now the other way round.First delete the old driver of the printer and reinstall the driver. Most manufactures provide an automated click next type of install software. You can search their website for the the drivers.After reinstalling now try to print.

Let us know if you need further assistance.
Thanks for contacting

Cannot print from laptop to printer using wireless print server

This is probably the Software Firewall on your laptop

you should probably tell your firewall software that you have an internal network (Laptop-desktop-printer) you should add the IP range of the wireless network as a trusted network.

Install the software on the laptop first and when it asks to connect the device, continue without connecting. Once finished, ensure the printer on the desktop is being shared in the printers folder. Then on the laptop add a device and search the network. If your 2 computers have the network established it should see it.
