HP Color LaserJet 3550N wireless connection

I have installed my 3550N using a USB 2.0 cable. The printer has wireless capability, but I cannot communicate with it without the cable. I know the printers address, but I don't know how to connect.

Use the software that came with your printer. There is some sort of HP Admin that runs in your web browser that you can communicated with the Wireless Printer. The USB cable is use to install the drivers and software you want to use with it. Also backup in case of the wireless has issues you can still use the printer. If you're using a wireless router make sure it can see the wireless printer. But again you need to know what's the default Web Admin address and you say you know it.

So 1. open your web browser and type: http://192.168.1.2 in this example is what you would do. Your IP address will vary.

The manual or quick guide that comes with the printer should tell you want to do next.

Does it have wireless adapter card installed or just HP Jet direct card for 10/100? You might not have the wireless option installed as default. Check the connections to see what you have?

HP LaserJet 1022 is a "host-based" printer so it must be connected to a PC. Load the driver on PC first and connect the USB cable when software tells you to do so.

Will not work on a Linksys print server.

LaserJet 1022N & LaserJet 1022NW have "special" HP print servers that can support HP host based printers.

Deleting the printer and then reinstalling it using the Gutenprint Drivers for the HP 1300 Series in the Add Printer pull down will allow you to print B/W. This works wirelessly over an Airport Extreme, so I assume that it will work wired. I am searching for a solution that prints in color. Amazing that HP and Apple seem content to orphan such a widely-used and relatively recent MFP.

Another option is to find an old laptop, with "wireless" capabilities and a Parallel Port.

Connect the printer to the laptop.

Connect the laptop to your wireless network.

Tell the laptop to "share" the printer.

Then, any computer on your network can "find" the networked printer, and can print to it.

  • Troubleshooting Setup and Install If your device is not recognized:
    • Verify that your cable is USB 2.0 high-speed compliant.
    • Ensure that your cable is connected correctly. Remove the USB cable, look at the end of the cable, and then match it to the pattern on the USB port. Make sure that it is not upside down. Insert one end of the USB cable completely into the USB port on the HP device and the other end into the back of the computer.
    • Check that the peripheral is turned on. Peripherals will not be recognized if the power is off.
    • Ensure that your USB cable is no more than 15 feet or 5 meters in length.
    • Check that the USB port is enabled. Some computers ship with disabled USB ports.

How to wirelessly access HP Laserjet 1320n via Apple iBook


You need to disconnect the USB cable and set it up wireless on both units:
Since it is plugged into the router, it should already have an IP address.
Un-install the printer from the computers.
Then re-install the printer from the cd or from HP's website. When you get to the point where it ask you is the printer is attached to the computer or is it over the network. Choose over the net work and the software will find the printer IP and finish setting it up wireless.

If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe

HP LaserJet II p Plus will not print


Hi,

I am assuming that you are using Vista. Based on your post/description:
1. the HP Compaq 6710b has no parallel port;
2. the HP LaserJet IIP Plus is only capable of either serial or parallel connection;
3. hence you're attempting a USB to Parallel interface;
4. the printer is installed in your notebook and is set to USB port;
5. from the printer a test print can be performed but not from the Printer Properties in your notebook;
6. all printing jobs initiated from the notebook results in an "Error".

With the above in mind, may I point/suggest that:
a. Windows Vista driver will only enable your HP LaserJet IIP Plus' basic functions to work. It is not 100% compatible;
b. alternately, you can try using the XP installation CD/drivers of the printer;
c. the compatibility issue may be compounded by the USB to parallel interface;
d. the USB to parallel interface may be hampered by a known Vista USB issue;
e. you can try patching/updating the Vista USB driver. Since this has been a recognized issue with Vista, Microsoft has posted a fix for this here or here.
f. verify that the printer does not display a 22 or 40 Error.

If the printing concern has not been rectified after completion of the above procedures, you may need to:
i. download and install HP Universal PostScript Print Driver; or
ii. consider using a wireless print server connected to the parallel port of the printer; or
iii.consider replacing your printer. Sorry.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.
