Question about Printers & Copiers

1 Answer

Have a HP C7280 Photosmart all in one for wireless connection with Belkin 54g Router. Finds router and everything works correctly but when the device is active (switched on) it disrupts attempts to access the internet. I have to turn off the 7280 and re-power the router to get access to the Internet but it then disrupts access when switched on. Cannot get a response from HP as yet and have had to connect via USB as a work round which defeats the purpose of its purchase! The device is some 12 feet across the room. I have re-installed it too many times to have to do it again. Is this a channel or signal strength or settings problem?

You mentioned it's disrupting internet access when turned on. Can you post the results of a ping and tracert (with it connected via ethernet and turned on)? To ping: 1. Start > Run and type: cmd 2. At the prompt, enter the following and press enter (after each line); cd c:\ ping google.co.uk >> ping.txt ping.txt The last line of the above, will open ping.txt in Notepad, for you to post here. To Tracert: 1. Click Start > Run and type: cmd 2. At the prompt, enter the following (again, press enter after each line) cd c:\ tracert google.co.uk >> tracert.txt tracert.txt The last line of the above, will open ping.txt in Notepad, for you to post here.

on the front panel of the printer press the tool button and look for wireless settings and press ok. under wireless settings look for wireless setup wizard. it will ask for you wep/wpa. it's the same as your wpa when connecting to a wireless router or wifi.

How do i set up my printer to print wirless after setting up the wireless wizard with my router


Presumably, the wizard helped you choose an SSID and a password.

On the controls on the HP printer, enter the SSID and the password,
and then the HP will try to connect to the wireless interface on the router.

I am installing a wireless printer to my laptop. it finds my network when i click on it i am asked for a WEP key. I anot sure what they are looking for.


A WEP key is a security code needed for communication with wireless router so if you don't know that code you cannot connect to router and through the router to printer.
You can change or view that code by entering in wireless router setup.

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

Days to set up Wireless laptop to HP Photosmart C7280 All-in-one


try this Update the firmware in the wireless router
http://www.linksys.com/servlet/Satellite?c=L_CASupport_C2&childpagename=US%2FLayout&cid=1166859761879&packedargs=sku%3DWRT54GS&pagename=Linksys%2FCommon%2FVisitorWrapper&lid=6187961879B01&displaypage=download

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.

Drivers can be found here

Download them. When you install them, choose network.

You do have one of these?

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.
