HP DESKJET D1360 HOW TO SET UP WIRELESSLY USING MAC


Are you trying to use MAC filtering. You would just need the MAC from the network setup screen and add it to your router/firewall.

If you are using a Mac (Apple) computer you would, providing you have a wireless adapter connected to Mac, just go into "System Preferences" and use the wizard under "Print & Scan". Make sure the networking on the printer is in on the same as your Mac.

My Officejet wont print pdf files from my minimac (os 4.11) but prints fine from my pc running xp. Also my mac has lost ethernet connectivity, but the pc works fine. Any sugguestion how to fix?


This seems to be a single issue. The fact you cannot print to a presumably shared printer AND cannot access the network or Internet, would indicate your issue is simply connectivity related.
Are you connecting the Mac via wired ethernet cable or wireless?
If it is wired, check your connection via the network icon on your screen (usually upper left) Click on the icon and choose "Open Network Preferences". In the window that appears, check on the left side to see if the appropriate connection has a green, yellow or red dot next to it. If the dot is red, you are not connected. If the dot is yellow, you are connected but there is an issue.
If the connection is wired and there are other computers able to get online, then check the cable connected to the Mac or replace it.
If the connection is wireless, then check try reconnecting again and make sure you are using the right passphrase for your security requirements. You may need to delete the profile and recreate it. You can do this by clicking on the Wi-Fi item on the left panel of your Network preferences window and then clicking on Advanced button. In the following window that appears, find your wireless network name in the list under Preferred Networks and click on it to highlight it. Then click the - button to remove it. Then close the window and try reconnecting to the network from the icon on the bar at the top of your screen, using the correct network passphrase (if needed).
If this still does not work, think this through...
1. Is any other computer using wireless connection and having a similar connection issue?
2. Did this computer EVER connect to the network and Internet successfully?
If the answer to either question is yes, then the problem is likely your Router/Modem. power OFF the router (and modem if separate) for about 30 seconds and then power it ON. See if this resolves the connectivity issue. If not, consider doing a factory reset on the router/modem, but make sure you have the appropriate settings needed to configure the router and/or modem as these will likely be lost when you reset the devices and will be required to get connected to your Internet Service Provider.
If the answer to question 2 above is NO, then the problem is directly related to the mac. If you are trying to connect via wireless, try connecting with an ethernet cable instead to make sure the mac can connect that way.
If neither way seems to work, it may be possible there is a network configuration problem, defective router, or possible network conflict present and may require a more professional approach requiring a visit from a networking professional to resolve it.

Have you setup the the printer to find for wireless and you also then must setup the "Mac" for wireless.

Can not find printer on wireless network


I am pretty sure the HP J4680 is wireless only, at least I can't find any Ethernet ports on HP Officejet J4680 that are obvious. So first make sure the blue antennae light is on on the left side of the HP panel. If it is not on press the button that says 802.11g and the blue light will light up indicating that the wireless is now enabled. Check now and see if you can see the printer on the network. Power cycle the printer and router and then see if the printer shows up. If you think it is now connected you can go to step 9) below. if not go to the next step

If the above didn't work try and change the wireless settings from the front panel of the HP Officejet J4680. Press the setup button (the wrench) on the front panel, then scroll till you see Wireless Menu and press OK, then scroll till you see Setup Wizard and press OK. The printer will search for all the wireless routers it can find. It should display your wireless router SSID, this is the name of the router. When it shows you the name of the router press OK and it will display WPA Passphrase or WEP passphrase (depends on the security you have on your wireless router). If you see the SSID of your router this is a good thing, because it indicates that the wireless is working and just needs to be configured. Now type in the passphrase exactly (the same passphrase you use to connect your PC or Mac to the wireless internet) and press OK. It should connect to the wireless router. If this doesn't work, unplug and plug in the wireless router and the printer and try it again. If you think it is now connected to the wireless, then go to step 9) below. If the above doesn't work you can keep trying it but I haven't had much luck with the front panel method.

If the above fails to work, the next method to try is to connect a PC or Mac directly to the HP Officejet using the AD-HOC wireless method. I can't figure out how to get the HP printer into this AD-HOC mode unless I do a wireless reset of the values in the printer. There is prob a way to do this without a reset, but I couldn't get it. I would recommend you read through all the steps below before you do this. It will wipe out what you currently have setup in your printer. But these are the steps I just went through and I got my printer to connect to my MAC and work.

1) You might not have to do this step, but if all else fails reset the HP Officejet J4680 network by pressing the setup button (the wrench) go to Wireless Menu and Press OK then go to Reset Wireless select YES and press OK. If that doesn't work then there is another reset that I found in the setup menu (the wrench) under Tools and then Restore Defaults. I wound up doing both resets on my Officejet J4680

2) Power the HP Officejet off and on for good luck (again optional but might help).

3) Make sure the the wireless on the printer is enabled by pushing the button on the left side front under the 802.11g so that the blue wireless light turns on. (again optional, but make sure the blue antennae light is on)

4) Connect to the HP Officejet J4680 wireless printer directly from the MAC (this is pretty neat stuff) click on the Airport icon at the top bar of your mac screen, if you see the hpsetup listed then click on it, if it is not listed then click on join other network and type in hpsetup and click Join. This will join the mac to the Ad Hoc HPSetup network and you can now setup the printer from the mac!

5) Important: Print a network settings report on the HP Officejet by pressing the setup button again (the wrench) go to Print Report and press OK, go to Network config and press OK. If you try and print this before you connect (step 4) you will not get the info you need in the report, so connect first from Mac to HP then print this report.

6) fire up safari or Firefox or chrome browser on the Mac and type in the URL that is listed on the report you just printed out. It starts with http:// type in the http:// and the 4 numbers all together with no spaces into the address bar in your browser and press return.

7) you are now connected to the HP Officejet J4680 via the web browser interface. Click on Networking, then Advanced, click the infrastructure tab, type in the SSID of the wireless router (i.e. the name of the router you see when you try and wirelessly connect from a computer) and fill in the passphrase info for your router, type it again to confirm, then click apply.

8) The printer will change the connection from the Ad-Hoc network to the SSID of the wireless router. So you have to connect to the wireless printer, to do this on a MAC, you go to the top row of the mac and click the Airport icon, select the wireless router.

9) Now go to the spotlight icon (far right top row on the mac) type Print and then click on Print & FAX, if your printer is not listed, then click the + and add it. You should be able to check the supply levels on the HP, if you see the current time below the supply levels you are successfully connected. On a Windows system, you would go to control panel, then Printers and add your printer if it is not listed.

How do i cannect my macg4 to my home network??


Ummmm by connecting wireless to a wireless access point that you would have (assumes you have Apple Airport Wireless option in your Mac) or by plugging in to a Switch/Hub (or router with a switch hub.)

Mac OS X should detect the wired connection and get IP Address and Router settings automatically ... just like any other computer.

If you have wireless in the Mac then you should have a radio waves looking Apple Airport Icon. You should be able to find your wireless network and Just Connect.

If all else fails press the Smiley Face button on the mac. :-)

(that was a joke.)

Mac OS X, now based on Unix Operating System, has very good networking sub system built-in. Should work without too much rocket science. The graphical widgets should help you get there.

It won't play blue ray disks though, I can tell you that much.

MAC address filtering is used to prevent unauthorised people getting access to your wireless network. you need to get into the Airport Extreme configuration using Internet Explorer or any other browser, then select wireless setup then MAC address filtering. You need to turn off MAC address filtering.
Check your manual on how to configure your Airport Extreme.

Hello,

This article provides instruction on the installation of the AirPort Wireless Networking card into a Power Mac G4 (AGP Graphics) computer. Similar instructions, with graphics, are included with the AirPort card.

1. Shut down the computer (choose Shut Down from the Special menu) and unplug all cables except the power cord.
2. Touch the metal PCI access cover on the back of the computer to discharge static electricity. Avoid walking around until you have finished installing the card. Unplug the power cord then lift the latch on the side of the computer.
3. Gently lower the side panel onto a clean, flat surface. Lower it onto a soft cloth to avoid scratching the case.
4. Connect the antenna cable to the connector on the end of the AirPort card. The cable is usually stowed on the side of the PCI card guide.
5. Remove the metal clip and pull the AirPort card from the adapter card, shown below. The adapter card and clip are not used with your Power Mac G4.

6. Insert the AirPort card (serial number side up) through the opening in the PCI card guide, and into the connector on the main logic board as shown below.

58536_2.gif

7. Raise the side panel and press it against the case until it snaps into place.
Instructions for using the AirPort software are in Mac Help, available in the Help menu.

Wireless Internet access requires an Internet service provider (fees may apply) and AirPort (or AirPort-compatible) wireless Ethernet card and base station. Some ISPs are not compatible with AirPort. For more information, see technical document 106590: "AirPort: Requirements for Wireless Internet Access"
