Does HP LJ 3055 printer scan over the wireless network?
I have a small home office network. I have 3 laptops. 2 laptops with WIN XP and 1 with Win Vista. I have a Printer HP LJ 3055 also in that network. It is connected to a hub directly and hub is connected with the laptops through wireless network. Now the problem is I can not scan when the printer is in wireless network. But when it is connected on wired network, it scans properly. But if I set the resolution to 100 dpi and b/w scan, it scans properly , but If the dpi is increased to 150 and greyscale , it scans 3 pages and then stops. but if I keep the dpi to 150 and but in color, it says connection lost.
I am using Netgear router and helskins . Happned with both the routers.
How can I scan via wireless network using all the features , i mean using 250 dpi and color features with out losing connection? Does it support wireless connection ?
Re: Does HP LJ 3055 printer scan over the wireless...
Scan over wireless network is not supported with this printer. You can try set it up and get scanner to work with usb and then change port from usb to HP standard TCP/IP for the device, but I don't think it will work.

To get ahead of myself and answer your question first, your Win 7 machine may automatically load a driver for your shared printer.
Please have a look at the procedure below: (these instructions assume that your XP machine is sharing the HP printer and that your Win 7 laptop can "see" your network and the shared printer connected to your XP desktop computer)
On the Win7 machine, follow these steps:
1) In "Control Panel" click "Add local printer" 2) Create New Port > Local port 3) Port Name is "\\xpcomputername\printername" - without the quotes
(insert the XP's real network name and your printer's real name in the above location)
4) Click <OK>
5) Windows 7 should automatically load a driver allowing you to print on the HP connected to the XP from the Win7 laptop.
Okay so this may not help you now, but I just got a hand me down D780.
After much frustration and research here's the solution that I was able
to work with. It isn't perfect; but it's something....
are the steps for network shared installation; assuming your D780 is
installed on an old xp desktop and you're using a Win-7 laptop. If
you're using the printer directly on your Win-7 machine, just use the
local printer installation after the XP mode has been installed.
You'll have to install WinXP mode on Win-7 using the steps listed on
this link. If you have a genuine Win-7 copy installed, this download
and installation is free, courtesy Microsoft.
After installation, you'll have to change network settings for your
virtual pc. This step is necessary if you want to be on the same home
network and want to see the printer! Never mind if you don't understand
this logic. Just follow the steps and you'll do just fine. To change
the network settings in vPC: click Tools; click Settings; select Network
from left; then for Adapter 1 choose the actual network adapter
connected to your router (simply put: select the wireless adapter or
wired adapter you're using to connect to your actual router or home
network. You can find that from Change Adapter Settings in Network and
Sharing.) Click Ok.
3) Now add the printer as local or networked
following your usual XP steps. You should be able to see the printer.
If not, open a command prompt window, check your ip to make sure you're
on same network. If not, or if you don't know how to do that, just
type in ipconfig /release enter and then ipconfig /renew enter. Try to
connect to the shared printer by pinging the ip of the host computer.
If the ping works, you should be able to see the printer then.
Connect printer and use in XP mode. Not the best solution, I
know. But it's free and at least lets you print from your laptop,
given the circumstances.
Sometimes this problem occures when you install a later model wireless router.
Try installing the latest Wireless card driver on the XP computer and the LAN card drivers on the other computers except the MAC.
