The wireless switch can be in many different places depending on the computer you own. For the HP you own, specifically, I'm not sure, but it should either be somewhere in the front of the processor or it can even be on the keyboard. Look for a symbol that resembles a object with "wireless signal waves" coming out of one or two sides. Here is an example of a wireless symbol: http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bc/docs/support/SupportDocument/c00045244/c00188322.jpg

Once you locate this symbol, you should either be able to push the switch or button on which it's located to activate the wireless switch or you should be able to flip a switch next to the symbol to activate it. If you cannot locate this switch, check your user manual for instructions or contact HP directly to get step-by-step instructions. Let me know if you need anything else.

Installing OKI c3400n in Windows 7 32 bit


The c3400n does not have its own wireless capability. It must be connected to a wireless print server or to some wired network that has a wireless access point (WAP) connected to it. A third option is to use a home-networking wireless router.

Individual PCs must have wireless capability also, or they can't print over wireless.

Somewhere along the line the printer must get a local network IP address, i.e. 192.168.0.102. PCs usually use Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) to get an IP address.

But printers are usually manually set to a 'static' IP, because static IPs don't change over time.

Usually there is a security device called a 'firewall' to protect the wired network from unwanted wireless traffic.

So, you first require some form of wireless access.

The people who require wireless printing capability must have their computers configured to make an association to the WAP. Usually requires a passkey or password, depending on the wireless security method.

A port on the firewall must be forwarded to the port used by whichever network-printing protocol is being used to communicate with the printer. There are several possible protocols.

The printer must be set to an IP address unique within the private subnet, i.e. 192.168.0.0/16, used by the local network.

PC-based network-connected devices use IP (Internet Protocol) addressing, i.e. xyz.zxy.yzx.xzy

The printer must be connected to a network switch that is in some way accessible to the WAP. Residential/SOHO (Small Office Home Office) setups use a combination switch/router device, called simply: a router.

Most of the above is done automatically, but there are some set-up tasks that require user intervention. Electronic devices know how to configure everything, after they are given proper parameters.

All you need to do is check the above items. If the printer is found by MS Windows 'searching for network printers', the hard part is done. Then you just tell Windows to use the network printer.

Can't start my wireless modem


I think the problem is you cannot connect to the internet wirelessly using your laptop. The problem may lie in the modem or in the laptop itself.
First you need to isolate the problem. That is, determine if the laptop or your modem is the one that has the problem. If you can connect to the internet using your laptop in someone elses home network or free wifi outside your home, then the problem is your modem. BTW, modems don't have the capability to connect wireless devices to the internet. You need a wireless router. If what you have is a router, you're on the right track.
If your laptop can detect your home network, try connecting to it. If you're getting an error, call your Internet Service Provider. They should be able to help you fix the problem. Also, try updating the driver of your laptop's wireless card. You can do this by hardwiring your laptop onto your router, go to device manager, right click on your wireless card, then hit update driver. If nothing works, call your laptop's OEM.

I can not get signal wi-fi when i try TP-LINK TL-WN722N connected to PC...but when i try in notebook there is no problem.My notebook and PC have same OS,thanks


Usually ordinary desktops doesn't have the capability to connect to a WLAN Network because there won't be any WiFi antenna embedded on the motherboard.But in the case of laptops for the ease of use of network services wherever you go they come fitted with WiFi antenna and hence can connect to a wireless LAN network by the flip of a switch.Connecting to a Wireless LAN network has nothing to do with OS because it is a Hardware feature.Please don't forget to rate me if satisfied with my solution.Thanks for choosing Fixya.

Iam trying to set up a photosmart D7360 to work in my home for all PCs so I'd like to set it up wireless. I'm currently using a router. How do I start? I have a brand ne HP lap top and the photosmart is in...


HP Photosmart D7360 is Not completely Wireless Capable, However if you want to make it Wireless, You will have to use HP bt450 Bluetooth Wireless.

However since this printer has Ethernet Port, you can still make this printer wireless.

You will have to connect this printer thru Ethernet cable ( network cable ) to Router ( this is called wired networking )

Once you have connected the printer to Router, insert the disk in CD Drive and start the installation process, It will prompt you to choose the type of Connection, Choose Wired/Wireless Network and continue with further installation to complete.

How this works,
With any PC that is connected Wireless to Router, You will be able to print wireless from the PC to Printer.

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.
