Upon inputting the WEP password for a wireless network the printer states it is active on the network but instantly freezes and has to actually be reset by pushes the 6 and # key while unplugging and then reinserting the power cord. You can't even turn it off or unplug it to break the freeze. HP says it has something to do with the Linksys wireless router. Any clues? I know it won't hold a manually input IP address. It constantly resets to all zeros. Any word on what may fix this issue?
That usually happens when you are going to connect the printer PRO using the wireless. To avoid that problem, try connecting the Printer using the Manual Setting of the IP.
NOTE: If the router has an outdated or firmware that was not supplied by the manufacturer, update the router to the latest manufacturer-supplied firmware. Set a Manual IP address on the HP All-in-One
Actually, the best thing to do is disable the ethernet. There is a firmware problem on this model printer. By disabling the ethernet the wireless will work just fine.

What you want to do is first connect to the network by plugging it in to the lan (not wireless). Go through configuration, select wireless, and click temporarily connect through lan. Configure the wireless network there, and you'll be good to go.
