Question about Printers & Copiers

HP 7280 printer/internet access

I have resolved this issue:
I downloaded the latest 7280 installation file and installed the printer using a USB connection. When this was correctly established and working I removed the USB and used the network wizard on the 7280 to locate and connect to the router. I then used the 'add device' in the installation programme to locate the printer. This now works and allows me to access the Internet at the same time. However, I have tried this same method on my wife's computer and having established the connection via USB, I cannot get it to locate the printer. Whilst my computer is connected to the Belking 54g via an ethernet cable she is using the Belkin wireless monitor to access the router. She has no problems connecting to the Internet when the printer is active. Any ideas?

    with a minor twist - I've tried to install USB on a computer using Windows 2000, but cannot get the printer to be recognized.

It's just the printer she cannot access? Is she able to ping the printer? or possibly, connect to the printer via your computer? You can also try adding the printer manually. It's share name can be found either via your own computer (in the printer properties), or via the printers web interface (192.168.x.x). To do so, click Start > Printers and Faxes > Add Printer Select "Local printer attached to this computer". Click Next and select "Create new port", then from the dropdown list, select "Standard TCP/IP Port" and click Next. Click Next on the dialog that appears, then enter the printers IP address, and a port name for it (for example for my own I entered "192.168.0.100" as that is my printers IP address, and "IP_192.168.0.100" for the port name (Windows enters this itself when you put in the IP address - you can change this to whatever you like)), and click Next. You will now see a dialog showing you the printer it is going to add. Click Next on this screen.

Hi
I recognize the importance of resolving this issue and I look forward in providing you with the necessary assistance you need.

Problem: Cannot get network on the Mac not specified
OS : MAC computer Windows installed on it
Printer Office jet 6500 Wireless.


Solution :
There are few thing which are required to know before we start trouble shooting

IMPORTANT : Before you can install the product, your wireless network must already be set up. (To set up your network, follow the instructions that came with your particular access point.)

IMPORTANT : Before you can install the product, you must have the following information about the network:
  • Network name : The network name is the SSID (Service Set Identifier).
  • Password : WEP key or WPA passphrase


For a new product:CD installation is a quick and easy method and if you do not have a CD, you can download the software you need.

CD installation : CD installation might not work if you are installing the product on a computer running a newer operating system that released AFTER the HP product released as the software on the CD is current to the date of the product release.

Downloading the HP Drivers :Downloading the software provides the best results for your older product. Even though it takes more time than using the CD, downloading the latest software can help you avoid installation issues. Downloading is also the recommended method if your computer operating system released after the HP product released. The software that you can download from the HP Web site is the most current software available for your product. HP often updates software and drivers AFTER the product and CD release to the market ..

  • Your wireless-capable HP product. Place it close to the computer during the installation procedure.
  • A USB cable (used only during installation).
  • Administrator privileges or password
2. Make sure the product, access point, and computer are all on, and that the computer is connecting to the wireless network.
3. Connect the USB Cable to the rear port of the HP product and to any USB port on the computer.
4. Exit all applications running on your computer.Install the software
To install the product software, follow the steps for the method that you want to use (CD or download).
Method one: Install the software with the software CD
  1. Insert the Macintosh product CD into the CD drive of the computer.
  2. Double-click the HP software disc icon that displays under the Xp/Macintosh HD icon.
  3. Double-click the HP Installer icon. The HP Installer program opens.
  4. Follow the on-screen instructions to start the installation.
  5. When prompted to set up your device and software, select Continue .
  6. If a check mark does not appear, select Configure your device for a wireless network , and then select Continue.
  7. Follow the on-screen instructions to finish installing the software
Option two: Change connection type
1. Open HP Device Manager.
2. From the Information and Settings drop-down menu, click Setup Assistant . 3. The HP Setup Assistant window opens.
4. Follow the on-screen instructions to change your connection type to an existing wireless network.

Download latest driver bundle (198mb) and the network reliabilty patch. Install the HP software choosing Connected via USB. Install the network reliability patch from the C7280 downloads page. Re-run the 198mb installer and choose Add a Device.

Presto! Wireless setup completes correctly.
