Re: can't get 6310 to find laptop and allow wireless...
You have to setup the network on the printer first click setup then go to network then wireless setup wizard once you do that insert the cd and add a device if that doesn't work it may be a firewall issue disable every firewall on your pc if it still wont find it it may be the firewall on your router

Sorry to say but this printer don't have a wireless capability, it only works on Hi-Speed USB , Ethernet 10 Base-T/100 Base-TX. But if you want to make it wireless you can use a wireless print server from different manufacturer like Linksys WPS54G.
To be able to set up wireless printer configuration, there are three basic items that you need to have. They are a high-speed broadband Internet connection (with modem), a high speed wireless router and wireless network adaptors. These three items will be used in setting up the wireless printer. Assuming that there is already an existing network in the home or office space, then all that is needed to do to make the printer available in the network through the operating system’s networking wizard. If not, then the network must first be established, only then the printer will be made available through that network. get more information and help for Wireless Printer Configuration .

how do you connect to the printer? USB/parallel/Network?
Does it prints fine if you print an information page from the printer display/butons?
I would try to uninstall the printer driver and install it again to start. It's definately a communication problem so it may take a few tries to get it to work again.
Nothing helps. Print servers are capable of connecting a multifunction printer for printing capabilities only. For scanning, you have to connect directly to the Computer or by a Multifunction printer with wireless capabilities.
If you have set up your printer on a wireless network, you will need to open up some ports on your router in order to get the scan feature to work. I could only print and not scan. I went to HP's support site and they gave me the list of ports to open -- of course they don't tell you how to do that. Everything works fine now. If that's your problem, post another thread with the router ID and hopefully we can figure it out. Hope this helps.
Indeed, you don't need the print server. Since your HP 6310 already has an integrated network port, you may setup and use it on your laptop the same way you do with your desktop. If you can browse the Internet wirelessly with your laptop, you should also be able to print.
