Question about Office Equipment & Supplies

1 Answer

Photosmart C4380 where do I start with installing this printer...? When I first purchased this printer, it took ages for me to try and figure out how to install it. I even got a new software disc and inlisted the help of the HP online support technicians. Although I managed to install it eventually, now and then I would loose the wireless connection and have to reinstall again. And then.... The neighbours kept logging on to my wireless network so I decided to put WEP security on my router. And then...I had to reinstall the software, where I reached the same problem as most people, where it states "Device could not be Installed properly". SO. I downloaded the Basic driver off the internet and that seemed to work (I got to 9/9 on the installation thing) and then It said "your device is not configured for wireless networking", (It has been wireless networking for the last six months). I have installed it via USB first, and then tried to add a device, but I keep going back to the page where you select either USB or network connection. I then tried connecting directly to the hpsetup through Wireless networks in my network connection. So I can print wirelessly, but only if I connect to the hpsetup network and not through my internet router (which is pointless). Please can you save my printer from being thrown out the window.

    Hi. I managed to Fix it myself!! So for anyone else who has a similar problem...
    So I ha installed vis USB. I left the software but deleted the actual printer from Printers and Scanners. I then connected to the HPSETUP network and then added a device. This worked although I could not print while connected to the internet. SO then I went to the start up page on the installation disc (well actually the start up page of the downloaded software because the disc doesn't work) I selected "Reconfigure network Settings" and voila! It picked up my wireless router and It now works!! I hope this is helpful to other owners of C4380's.

Delete the old installation and reinstall the printer again and do the reconfiguration for either USB or wireless. It worked for me when I did this. The scanner begins to work and no more 'no USB or wireless connection' msg anymore. :~)
