I can help, I had the same problem. So first you must reset the printer and set a network. The little button on the back that is 1,2,3. Just pick one and leave it there forever. Next you must uninstall the printer from your computer since you need to just start all over. Place the install disc for the printer and choose the uninstall option and follow those instructions. Next you need to reset the printer of all network activity. You do this by holding down the power button and pressing the X button twice then pressing the down arrow button six times. This resets your printers wireless setting to factory fresh. One you do all this reinstall the printer with the install disc. But first make sure the printer is on and connected to the laptop with a USB cable and also connect to your laptop wireless as well and make sure the printer is on and the wireless card installed on the printer. It will not print but it will have a connection to your laptop at this point. When you see the options on the printer install, choose the option install a wireless device and not the bluetooth. It will the go through some things and when it finally says that it cannot find your printer choose next and find your network. If it is not listed on your choices manually put it in. Your SSID is hpsetup. This will then let our laptop find your printer and follow all of the instructions to finish the printer install and then the wireless card installation. Hope this helps. Just make sure everything is hooked up and connected USB and wirelessly before starting the install. This is the deal breaker. If not, it will not work.

If you have a USB memory stick (Flash Drive) you can copy the contents of the CD to that and then run the setup program from there. If you don't have a PC with a CD drive you could ask a friend/colleague to copy the cd onto the stick for you.

I have an officejet H470 printer, prints slow

More than likely the print resolution is set to it's highest setting. In the printer settings change it to 'Normal' or 'Fast Normal'. It will print fast then. Hope this helps you.

The answer to your question is 'Yes'
You can print from iphone by connecting it through the wireless connectivity but for that you would require the Hp iprint software.
