To set up an HP printer on a wireless (Wi-Fi) network, connect the printer to the wireless network, then install the printer driver and software from the HP website from a computer with Windows. When prompted during the installation, select Wireless as the connection type.
Step 1: Prepare for installation
Before setting up the printer on your wireless network, gather the network name and password, and turn on your router, printer, and computer.
  1. Gather the following items:
    • Network name: The network name is the SSID (Service Set Identifier).
    • Network password: The password might also be called the WEP key or WPA security passphrase.
    • A computer connected to your wireless network
    • Internet access: HP recommends broadband Internet access such as cable or DSL for software downloads, using Web Services, and getting printer updates.
  2. Make sure the router and computer are turned on, and that the computer is connected to the same wireless network to which you want to connect the printer. Turn on the printer and place it close to the computer and within range of the router during the setup procedure.
  3. Disconnect any USB or Ethernet cable from the printer, if necessary.
Step 2: Connect the printer to the wireless network
The Wireless Setup Wizard provides an easy way to set up and manage the wireless connection to your printer.
  1. On the printer control panel, press the Wireless icon , and then press the button next to Settings.
  2. Press the down arrow to scroll to Wireless Setup Wizard, and then press OK.
    The wizard searches for and displays a list of available networks.
  3. Press the down arrow to scroll to the name of your network, and then press OK.
    If the list does not contain your network name, you can enter it manually.
    1. Press the down arrow to scroll to Enter New Network Name, and then press OK.
    2. Press the down arrow to scroll to the appropriate letters or numbers on the on-screen keyboard.
       note:
      You must enter the exact uppercase (capital) and lowercase (small) letters. Otherwise, the wireless connection fails.
    3. When you finish entering the new network name, scroll to Done and press OK.
      The printer attempts to connect to the network.
  4. When prompted, enter the WEP or WPA key.
    1. Press the down arrow to scroll to the appropriate letters or numbers on the on-screen keyboard.
       note:
      You must enter the exact uppercase (capital) and lowercase (small) letters. Otherwise, the wireless connection fails.
    2. When you finish entering the WEP key or WPA key, scroll to Done and press OK to confirm.
      The printer attempts to connect to the network.
Step 3: Download and install the driver
Download and install the most current version of your printer’s full feature software from the HP website.
 note:
If an Auto Wireless Connect screen displays during the installation, follow the on-screen instructions to connect and install the printer. Otherwise follow the steps in the HP Installer software to complete the connection and driver installation.
 note:
As an alternative method to downloading the software, you can use the installation CD.
  1. Go to 123.hp.com.
  2. Enter your printer model number, and then click Begin.
  3. Click Download, and then click Open, Save, or Run in any windows that display to download the driver to your computer.
