Installing the Printer Software
This allows you to connect your printer to your wireless network automatically without having to connect any cables or enter your wireless network settings such as your network name or password. Many newer HP printers will have this capability during the standard software installation process.
Note:HP Printers are not compatible with 5.0 GHz networks. You may still be able to connect the printer to your network using other setup methods as long as your router also supports 2.4GHz.
Note:: If your printer has been powered on for more than two hour and the software has not yet tried to connect the printer to your wireless network, you can reset this mode by using the "Restore Network Settings" or "Restore Network Defaults" option from the printer control panel. Usually found under the Network menu or by touching the wireless icon (or button) and then going to "Settings" or gear icon. Refer to your printer documentation for more information on this.
If this is a first time installation for a printer without a display and you are using the USB setup of the wireless method, the software will not find the printer on the network and you will be guided through creating a wireless connection for the printer.
During this process, you will temporarily connect a USB cable between the printer and your computer. Do not connect the USB cable until the software instructs you. The computer you are installing the printer software on must be connected to the same network you are connecting the printer to.
This wizard runs from the Printer’s control panel and is available only for printers with a touch display.
Note: Settings may be accessed by touching a wrench icon, depending on the product model.
