SOURCE: printer status says offline, and we can not print on laptop

Hi!
If you're offline with the printer, you definitely won't be able to print.

I'm assuming you're using Windows XP here. Most Windows products will be similar...

On the laptop, click on the Start button, then Settings, then Printers and Faxes. Find your printer in the list, right-click on it and click "Use Online" or uncheck the "Offline" box.

Good luck! Remember to rate the solutions!

We have a hp c4580 wireless printer and we are having problems with getting it to work. Can you please advice what to do. Bethany


Basically, you need to configure the HP C4580 printer with the same wireless settings of your network. Thus, you need to get the following information from your wireless router:

SSID or wireless network name
Type of Wireless Security
Wireless Security key/passphrase/password

To set those settings on the printer itself, you need to temporarily connect first your printer to the computer through USB. Then run the HP Printer Setup CD. It'll ask for you to install the required software then it'll ask for you to configure the printer on a wireless network. From then on, you will need to input the wireless settings that you got from your router.

HP C4580 - INSTALL PROBLEM


I don't know if you had your problen fixed, but I just bought this printer this week and was having problems setting it up with the instructions. I finally decided that I would just set it up to my laptop with the USB cable attached. The software that came with the printer was already in my computer. We'll the computer started up the software, It fully installed it, step by step. Now I have a wireless connection with the printer on all 3 of the laptops in the house. Just put the USB on your computer and on the printer. Make sure the software is installed and it will walk you through the installation. Install this way on all of your laptops. I'm so happy that I finally can print wirelessly without using the goofy instruction booklet. Good luck, hope this helps some one else.

How to wirelessly access HP Laserjet 1320n via Apple iBook


You need to disconnect the USB cable and set it up wireless on both units:
Since it is plugged into the router, it should already have an IP address.
Un-install the printer from the computers.
Then re-install the printer from the cd or from HP's website. When you get to the point where it ask you is the printer is attached to the computer or is it over the network. Choose over the net work and the software will find the printer IP and finish setting it up wireless.

If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe

HP C4580 won't go online


Thank you Nadine,

yes - the plot is thickening now!

To your problem:
The printer itself will never go online. If you want to print something from the internet (a web page i.e.), your computer is establishing that connection via a web browser (Internet Explorer, Firefox, etc.), like the page you see right now.
If you want to print something, you have to choose the "Print" command form the "File" menu in your application or hit the "Ctrl" key and "P" at the same time.

In the upcoming dialog you can choose your printer and the printing preferences. Try it right now and print this page. (Make sure you select "1 to 1" in the "Print Range" options, otherwise you might end up with a lot of scratch paper...)

Did it work?

If so - any other questions?
If not, post a comment and tell me what happened.
