Unfortunately no, that USB port is made primarily for storage. You can hook that printer to any computer on your network though and share it that way, over the wireless network. Just attach it to any computer, go into Control Panel, then Printers, right click on the HP Officejet printer in question, and go to SHARING. Enable sharing on it and all your other computers can connect to it.

If you want a true wireless printing option you will need a wireless printer... they are quite inexpensive nowadays, you can get this one for example for just $79:

What do I need to make my printer wireless?


You need 1) a wireless router with a USB port that supports the HP OfficeJet printer. 2) The software for your router to run a printer on the USB port. Obviously, you will need a USB A/B male end cable.Note: the scan features of the all-in-one may not work unless the printer is directly connected to the computer. Bi-directional communication is required for scanning and the router software may not support this completely.

Check the list of supported printers closely for older routers. I have a Cisco Linksys E4200 v.2. This router supports all the HP printers that I use.

If this is a new installation of the printer, first install the printer on the computer. If you have Windows 7, just connect the printer to the USB port on the laptop. This will install the OS drivers for the printer. (For Windows XP, go to the HP site and get the full software.)

Next install the wireless router between your modem and computer and set that up. (If you have DHCP (dynamic address allocation), it should be automatic. Otherwise follow the directions.) Next install the router software (for my router, it was Cisco Connect).

My next step was to launch the Cisco Connect program and connect the printer directly to the USB port on the router. In Cisco Connect, choose add a printer and find the printer connected to the router. Print a test page. (At times, I've had to reset the port that the printer is on in the Windows Control Panel Printer Properties. (For the Cisco Connect, the printer is on the DOT4 port.)

Other routers will be set up somewhat differently.

Another option is to have the printer connected to a desktop and then make it a shared printer with the wireless router communicating between the laptop and the desktop. This makes the desktop the print server, so it needs to be on when you want to print. If you have several computers with Windows, this can fairly easy to set up. Make sure that the computers are in the same Workgroup (XP) or Homegroup (Win7). Enable sharing and you are done.

I hope this helps.

(who has a OJ 7000 (with ethernet port) and a LJ1320 (USB) connected to the router. Three computers talk to these printers with the laptop on the wireless network. On an older router that didn't support the printers, the laptop was the server for a previous OfficeJet and one of the desktops was the server for the LaserJet.)

The DIR-628 does support a USB printer. You need to download the appropriate shareport version from dlink http://www.dlink.ca/products/?pid=DIR-628&tab=3.firmware

If the printer drivers are already installed on your PC you should be ready to go.

Printing with Dlink DI-624S and VPN connection


I am guessing this VPN is something work related and not a VPN you setup yourself?? If that is the case your company's VPN access will not allow you to pass from there network back to yours which is why you are unable to print to your local home printer when connected to VPN. You might could run it by your IT staff and see if they will allow connection and help you set it up. If not then simply email the docs to yourself and then print them out after you are finished using VPN connection.

Hope this Helps

Can I print via my wireless network with HP OfficeJet 6310xi?


Nothing helps. Print servers are capable of connecting a multifunction printer for printing capabilities only. For scanning, you have to connect directly to the Computer or by a Multifunction printer with wireless capabilities.
