Use the disk that came with the printer and install the software in both the computers based on the os installed in the individual computers, ping the ip address of the printer from both the computers, and then test for the functionality

So what is the connection ? USB or Wireless or Ethernet ?
Did you try connecting though other ports ? Connectivity, standard

  • 1 Host USB
  • 1 Ethernet

I have HP Officejet 6500 connected via USB to office desktop. I also need print from vista laptops on the same wireless network as the desktop. How do you do it ?


Hi, I just completed this same query this week.

to set up my remote network i followed promts from windows and then had to run my windows xp startup disc on my vista laptop.

After that was complete i had to install the hp printer setup cd onto my vista laptop and connect the hp printer to my router using the ethernet cable. I followed the prompts on the vista as the cd continued to install. then at the end of it all it showed i had correctly installed the printer via wireless and asked me to do a practice print which i did and all seems fine.

I can now print from my vista laptop and my windows xp desktop. I hope this helps

HP Officejet 6500 a plus won't print. Every time I press print, it says incorrect paper size. What is wrong?


This is one of the common connectivity issues marring the benefits of having a wireless printer. In this situation your printer will not print when connected wirelessly but would need you to set it up with your system using a USB cable. Try resetting the IP of your system to what is mentioned in the printer and in case there is a router connecting your printer and system then use the IP address of router and put it in your system. This should help you fix this printer issues.
