Connecting a wired printer is easy. Pick the right cable, and then plug one end into the printer and the other into a computer or network. Connect HP printer to the network wirelessly, on the other hand, is well not as easy. Even when everything goes smoothly, as it usually does, it’s still more complicated than plugging in a cable.
One issue to remember is that there’s more than one sort of wireless printing. Bluetooth-empowered printers, for instance, are remote printers, as are printers that offer infrared associations. Be that as it may, when a great many people talk about remote printers, they mean Wi-Fi printers, which is the thing that we’ll generally zero in on here.
Even limiting the discussion to Wi-Fi, there’s more than one way to connect a wireless printer, and for each basic type of connection, the steps vary depending on the particular printer. That makes it impossible to cover all the variations in any detail in one short article. Our goal instead is to cover the key information you need along with strategies for troubleshooting problems you may run into. The combination should give you a fighting chance of getting your wireless printer to connect even when the process doesn’t run smoothly.
Connect HP printer to the network-
For purposes of this discussion, we’ll assume that either you set up the network yourself and are familiar with its settings, especially its security settings, or you can easily contact someone who can give you the information.
The steps for connecting a printer by Wi-Fi depend in large part on what you want to connect to. The three choices are a Wi-Fi access point on a network, one or more individual computers directly, or a smartphone or tablet. Let’s start with an access point.
- Unpack your printer.
- Follow the setup instructions to remove the packaging. Check your printer’s setup guides to find out which approach to use. If you’ve lost your original documentation, you should be able to download copies from the manufacturer’s Web site.
- Plug in the power cord, turn on the printer and install print cartridges. Allow the printer to go through its startup routine, including printing an alignment page (if applicable).
- Choose one of the connection methods described below. If your 123 HP printer supports it and you choose an Ethernet (wired) connection, connect it now and skip to installing the printer software.
Note: while using an Ethernet connection the printer’s wireless system is disabled.
With the Wi-Fi connection working, everything else is easy. If you connected the printer using the installation program, simply continue on to install the driver. If you used the printer menus to set up the connection, run the installation program and pick Wi-Fi as the connection option. Note that even if you already have the driver installed, so it prints using, say, a USB cable, reinstalling it from the disc that came with the 123 HP printer is usually the easiest way to set it to print over the Wi-Fi connection.
