We cannot connect the pro l7680 printer wirelessly. Connect the printer to the router via ethernet cable and connect the desktop to the router wirelessly.

    Once check the communication between the computer and the all-in-one. Print the network configuration page from the all-in-one and then type the IP address of the printer on address bar of the internet explorer and press enter, this should open the printers configuration page, if the page is open then there is a communication between the computer and the all-in-one, now try to configure the port and then try again to print.

SOURCE: how to hook up this printer wireless to my main computer

Hi jjank740;

First off, did you try to recycle your printer? Turn it off and back on again. Sometimes power outages can disconnect that printer. If that doesn't work. Go to the printer and access the system network configuration on the led panel. Type in the WEP number and password again, and let it search for the connection. That should do it. Once it's connected you'll see the blue wireless indicator turn on.

Good Luck

Mark

After moving to a new house/ new state, I can not get my HP 2035n to connect wirelessly to the router. It will print from any of our computers, but must stay connected to the router. I can find no...


The HP P2035N doesn't have a built-in wireless ethernet connection. It has a wired ethernet port. To connect to a wireless router, you need the HP Jetdirect ew2400 802.11g Wireless Print Server or the HP Wireless Printing Upgrade Kit or a similar device (note: not all third-party wireless print servers will work with the HP printer). Did you have something like this and misplace it during your move? If you did, try to find the print server to use the wireless option. Otherwise, continue wired ethernet option since it is working.

HP support for the printer (manuals, set up infomation, and drivers) is available here: http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bizsupport/TechSupport/Home.jsp?lang=en&cc=us&prodTypeId=18972&prodSeriesId=3662025&lang=en&cc=us .

I hope this helps.

Need my laptop to communicate wireless to printer


If the printer does not have a built-in network card/print server then there is a couple of ways to do this.
If you have a desktop computer connected to the wireless router with a LAN cable, then connect the printer to the desktop computer and make this printer a shared printer on your network. This means that the desktop computer and printer needs to be on when you want to print from the laptop.
The other way is to purchase a print server, connect the printer to the print server and connect the print server with a LAN cable to the Wireless router.
If you don't have sufficient network ports on the wireless router then you need to purchase a hub. Then connect the hub and wireless router with a LAN cable and then the print server to the hub and other computers to the hub.
Setting up the wireless printing will depend upon which method you want to adopt and I can advise you when further when you are ready.

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

Wireless Printer Setup


For installing a wireless printer on Windows XP, wireless router is an essential device.

Follow the recommended steps mentioned on the installation CD of the router, and set-up a wireless network.

Since several computers or laptops will access the printer, it0 1is recommended to connect the wireless printer to the main computer through the USB port.

To begin the installation process on Windows XP, access the network setting in the Control Panel, and activate the file and printer sharing option in the LAN setting.

This will allow the operating system to recognize the availability of a wireless printer.

Now, click the Start button, go to Devices and Printers, select Add a Printer option.

Click the second option- Add a network, wireless or Bluetooth printer.

The computer will search for available printer and reflect it on the screen.

Click Finish; and the printer is ready to begin the printing process.
