Question about HP OfficeJet 7310 All-In-One InkJet Printer

Can I scan through a wireless network connection?

I have a printer connected wirelessly through a netwok connection.  I can print fine, but I can't "see" the scanner when I try to scan to it.  It works fine when I connect the scanner directly to the scanner, but this is not how I want to use it.  I need to scan to it via the wireless network.  How do I set this up.

As the name suggests, print server/hub will enable sharing only print commands, not the other functions of the printer. scanning can be done only from the client system.

Hmmm...well..that's an interesting point..according to HP site, this is NOT supposed to be an issue. Seems, though, that perhaps, the print server/hub you are using, is not processing the scan command? I'd check that item first, to see if it will handle those commands..

Connecting Hp wireless printer to my Acer 210 tablet


A wireless printer must connect to the wireless router so you must know the SSID & password of your wireless router.

Initial setup must be done fist by connecting and loading the drivers to the PC. Once done you can print wirelessly because you are printing to a networked TCPIP port.

Can i connect Hp F380 all in one printer to Linksys wrt54g, and i am using macbook, help


From looking at the printer information and the router information, you will probably need additional equipment to make this work.
The printer connects to computers using a USB cable. It does not have a network connection, either wired or wireless built in.
That means you need a print server to connect your printer to the network. Some routers have a print server built in, but the WRT54G isn't one of them.
The print server will have some USB ports to connect the printer to, and connect to the router with a cable, or wirelessly.
HP shows this option: http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?docname=c01428401&tmp_task=prodinfoCategory&lc=en&dlc=en&cc=us&site=null&key=null&product=1128296
If you can find that one, it might work the best. Many print servers have a hard time with all-in-one devices. They are usually able to print just fine, but scanning is troublesome. Make sure to review information about any print server you get, or router with built in print server to make sure it does everything you need.
Considering the price of a print server, it might be a better option to get a new printer that has built in network support. They are more likely to work easily and well. But watch carefully to make sure it can do everything you need (print, scan etc) over the network.

Wondering what I need to print wirelessly from laptop with this printer


If you printer hasn't a built-in wireless connection and if you haven't a wireless router then -
You need a wireless router plus print server. Connect this print server to the wireless router with a LAN cable. Then the printer is then connected to the print server's printer port.
The laptop's wireless card is then configured with the router's wireless settings.
The laptop is then installed with the printer driver and the printer port needs to be changed/configured with the print server's IP address.
ALTERNATELY
If the printer is connected to a desktop computer on your home LAN and it is also connected to your wireless router. Then you can set this printer as A Shared Printer on your desktop computer, but this desktop computer and the printer has to be powered up for the laptop to print to the printer.
For instruction on setting up a shares network printer, please click on this link and follow my instructions :-

I have a wireless connection to print but i can


Not all multi-function devices incorporate the ability to scan via a network connection. Since you didn't provide a printer model, I can't look it up to answer this fully. The ability to scan via a network connection is a function of the software that is provided with the printer. Check the documentation to be sure that the printer does indeed support network scanning and then go to the printer manufacturer's website and download the latest application (driver) package to eliminate the possibility of a software issure. The software should install a device in your scanners and cameras (Windows XP) that can then be used as a scanner source for applications within your computer.

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.
