My new hp office jet 4620 doesn't connect to my wireless network, does it need the broadband password?

From ipad, mac book etc, but I've not even got the printer onto the wireless network yet. I understood at the shop it would be pretty much plug and go, but it makes sense it would need a password or something. :(

On my wireless printer (epson) a program came on CD to talk to printer. There were step by step instructions, which I followed, from turning on printer and pressing a wifi button, to starting the app/program on the computer. For my iPad and other devices, a special app was needed as well, but since I set the computer up first everything else was easier.

SOURCE: Cannot connect iMac with DI-524 over wireless! Please help!

The most likely answer is that you have an access control list (MAC Address filtering list) set up on your router and have not added your Mac's MAC, also called your Airport ID to the list but there are other possible causes.
Double check that you do not need to add your MAC address to the list, that you did save changes when you removed security from your router and that your PC can still connect.
The hardest part of moving from PC to Mac is learning to trust your computer to do things for you, with Microsoft's OS's you don't just trust the automated set-up wizards because even in the rare circumstance that the wizard actually works you invariably have to finish the settings manually.
With your Mac the exact opposite is true, if you try to do everything manually it'll invariably mess things up, where as using the wizards and trusting the computer to manage things on it's own reaps obvious rewards.
If Airport set-up wizard is asking for a WEP key and leaving the field blank doesn't work you can be comfortably sure that the router has a key set up on it. (BTW: Always be mindful of the fact that WEP is pointless, even 128bit.) 
Check that your router has not been hijacked and that you have indeed removed the security from your router, is it possible that you have a WPA key set up on the router? Unlike WEP, WPA and especially WPA2 actually secure your network (in as much as is possible). 
Another major cause of connectivity issues for new Mac users is having Norton Internet security installed, for a PC user the idea of not having full-on paranoid security installed is anathema, the idea that your Mac's inbuilt firewall alone is plenty of protection (at time of writing) Other than that ClamXav antivirus will protect your Mac form any viruses that may appear in future. Norton Internet security for Mac is often pushed on buyers by stores that don't know any better, to be honest Norton Internet security for Mac is an awful lot of hassle and performance loss for little or no advantage.

Using a Mac is different to using a PC but once you have got used to using a Mac you will not be able to change back, once you have learned to trust your Mac to do things for you, you will find Windows (any version) to be painfully time consuming, unstable and fiddly to use.
Post back if you are still having problems. :)

Try to reset the router. This should resolve your problem. That model has a small hole were you must press with some a paper clip for exemple for a few seconds. This will reset the router to its original state.

How do I connect my HP office jet 4620 printer to my HP computer


There should be an option to setup your HP printer on your pc on the driver CD that came with it. This will allow you to print wirelessly. You can, therefore, use the printer on several machines simultaneously.

The wifi is between the printer and the computer, the printer cannot access the WWW.

I cannot connect to the WIFI at work, but I can connect to my WIFI network at home, and other public networks. The wireless network at work is pushed by a D-Link 8200AP with a WAP security, just like it is...


Your laptop cannot connect to your work's wireless network because the security settings (ir WAP) in the D-Link is different to the security setting in your Netgear.
The wireless card in your laptop will need the settings changed to suit the D-Link's wireless settings ie the SSID and WAP.
You will need to change the wireless card settings in your laptop back to the Netgear's wireless settings to connect to your wireless network at home.
Some wireless cards allow you to set up different profiles for different wireless networks which allow you to switch wireless networks easily by just selecting the profile for the network you want to connect to.

Reset your wireless password/key. Login in using your browser and go to the wireless settings and set-up a wireless password/key. Remember the key because each device will now need it to connect. You can also turn OFF Broadcast SSID and your network name will not be shown on anyone's device. You must remember the network name when using this method.

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 ..

  • 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
