Wireless problem I have a Photosmart all in one printer c7280. I am trying to set up wireless on multiple laptops. I have a home and work laptop. My work laptop works, but when i install the software on my home laptop it can not find the printer on the network. Even though when i look on my router the printer shows up. Can anyone please help me?!! It is driving me bananas! Thanks.

First we need to check whether there is a communication between the computer and the all-in-one. Once print the network configuration page from the all-in-one and collect the IP address of the all-in-one and pste it on the address bar of the internet explorer and press enter, this should open the printers information page, if it is opened then there is a communication between the computer and then all-in-one. Now disable the firewall and antivirus and then try to install the drivers. If there is no communication then try to assign the IP address manually to the printer depending upon the computers IP address.

I have a hp photosmart c7200 all-in-printer and have a desktop which it is setup to. I also have a laptop which I'm tring to setup up wirelessly but having trobule. Any suggestions.


Have you run the Wireless setup wizard from Printer ? If No, Press Setup button on printer front panel - Scroll till Wireless/Network settings - Choose Wireless setup Wizard and follow the directions.

After you have setup printer on network - Run the Printer s/w disk and Choose Add a Device and Choose Wired/Wireless network and continue with the Installation screen.

How can I connect my wireless laptop to print wirelessly?


run the wireless setup wizard on the printer from the front panel menus of the printer...this would assign an IP address to the printer from the router...then use the s/w cd that came along with the printer and get the drivers and s/w installed on your computer....if you want a wireless connection it would give you approprite options

Broadcast SSID(if changing security, you may want to change this)

Use WPA security(some devices won't work unless WPA security)

Mixed b and g mode

use channels 1, 6 or 11. Most devices work better on these channels

Save and log out restart everything, Routers and computers. Now connect.

HP Photosmart C7280 wireless connection


My experience is different. My DSL router died in the night and I had to install the old one. I just changed the wireless settings on my C7280, and now all three connections work. If no wire (ethernet or USB) is connected, the wireless connection works. If the Ethernet cable is connected, it works via Ethernet, and if the USB cable is connected, it works via USB. It seems to default in that order.
