Question about HP Officejet 7210 All-In-One InkJet Printer

1 Answer

Network Interface Hi, I have a problem with my 7210 all-in-one where suddenly it is not recognized by the ActionTec wireless router. I was working fine until one day when I went to print and it failed. I tried a power reset of the printer and the wireless router. I set the printer back to factory defaults but when I try to reinstall the printer it can't be found on the network. What else can I try. It seems like the network interface has failed for some reason. Does that sound like a feasible diagnosis? Thanks, Richard Abt

Re: Network Interface

Test the printer network cable for connectivity,but if the network interface fails u can use other ports like the usb port with the usb network interface adaptor to connect to the network once uve confirmed that the RJ45 network interface is bad

We are moving and need the MP530 to operate wireless and wish to buy the interface through the router; does a (say) five year old MP530 support a wireless interface?

This model printer has only an USB printer connection.
To connect this printer to a wireless network, you need additional equipment, a print server with an USB pirnter connection and then connect this printer server to a wireless router using a LAN cable.
It may be easier to purchase a new printer with wireless connectivity.

How to hook up a wireless printer to a computer

Does the printer also have some "wired" interface (parallel-port, or USB-port)?

If not, then you need to purchase a router with wireless capability:

1. Connect cable-modem (or DSL-modem) to the 'WAN' (or 'IInternet') port on the router.

2. Connect one of the 'LAN' ports on the router to the network-port on your computer.

3. Configure the wireless-adapter inside the router:
* set an SSID -- the "name" of your wireless network
* encryption-level -- use 'WPA' or 'WPA2'
* a password for your network

4. Configure the wireless printer to connect to that SSID, using the password

5. On the computer, click "Add Networked Printer"

6. Print a "test" page: computer -> wired -> router -> wireless -> printer

I do not know how to connect my Photosmart C4750 to my wireless router.

Use an Ethernet cable to connect the network-port on your desktop/laptop to one of the LAN ports on the router.
Start Internet Explorer.
Access the web-server "inside" the router.
Run the "Wireless Network Setup Wizard",
to configure a SSID, your level of encryption (use 'WPA') and a password/pass-phrase.

Then, on the printer, configure its wireless interface to connect to that SSID, using that password.

Kodak ESP 7 WIFI problems

The ACTIONTEC GT124, M1000 and PK5000 Routers are not compatible with wireless-enabled all-in-one printers. These routers cannot connect to your all-in-one printer because they do not support the multicast protocol. Contact your router supplier for additional assistance and to determine if your router will be able to support the muticast protocol in the future.

How do I have the printer recognize the router so I can print from my laptop from another room please? I have a C27250


Make a wireless connection between an HP all-in-one with built-in wireless networking capability and a functional wireless network with an access point (router) that is SecureEZSetup enabled.

Connecting the unit to the computer
  1. Activate SecureEzSetup on the access point (router). Usually this is accomplished by pressing a button on the access point. Refer to the router or access point documentation for specific instructions.
  2. Press the Setup button on the all-in-one.
  3. Press the arrow buttons until Network displays and then press OK . The Network menu displays.
  4. Press the arrow buttons until Wireless Setup Wizard displays and then press OK .
  5. Follow the instructions in the Wireless Setup Wizard.
  6. After the all-in-one connects to the network, install the product software on the computer.

I have an actiontec m1000 router/modem that has only one ethernet port. I have a desktop connected to it, and wish to use a laptop as well. If I get the wireless attachment for the actiontec router/modem,...

If this attachment occupies the router's Ethernet socket, then the solution would be to purchase a wireless USB adapter for your desktop, so that both can connect via WLAN, with the added benefit of less cables and more placement freedom :)
Be sure to configure WPA or WPA2 security on your WLAN network, WEP is very insecure and will welcome unwanted guests.

Can i connect my f4180 printer to a router and access it wirelessly

Your printer uses a USB interface and can be connected to a wireless network using a print server simular to the Linksys WPSM54G.

I have also found on the web several wireless routers that incorporate a USB print server function, that is they have a USB port that connects to your printer and allows it to be shared on the network.

Be careful not all routers with USB ports are for printers, these newer routers have USB ports for adding network shared disk storeage boxes and do not support printers.

They all incorporate a user friendly WEB based configuration program to help you do this so don't think you need a degree in computer science.
