HP Deskjet 3050A, 3070A - Wireless Printer Setup (Windows)

This document is for HP Deskjet 3050A, 3051A, 3052A, 3054A, 3055A, 3056A, 3057A, 3059A, and 3070A e-All-in-One (j611 and b611) printers and Windows computers.
To set up an HP printer on a wireless (Wi-Fi) network, install the printer driver and software from the HP website. When prompted during the installation, select Wireless as the connection type.
Step 1: Gather the required network setup items
You must have the following items before you install the printer on the wireless network:
  1. Gather the following items:
    •   Network name: The network name is the SSID
    • Network security password (WEP key or WPA passphrase)
    • A computer that is connected to your wireless network
    • Internet access (recommended): HP recommends broadband Internet access such as cable or DSL.
    • Your wireless-capable printer: Place your printer close to the computer during the installation.
    • USB cable: The installer prompts you when to connect the USB cable.
  2. Make sure the printer, router, and computer are all turned on, and that the computer is connected to the same wireless network to which you are connecting the printer.
  3. Disconnect any USB or Ethernet cables from the printer.
Step 2: Download and install the driver
To set up the printer on a wireless network, install the print driver, and then temporarily connect the USB cable from the printer to the computer. This allows the printer to gather the necessary wireless information from the computer.
 note:
As an alternative method to downloading the software, you can use the installation CD.
  1. Turn on the printer.
  2. Disconnect the USB cable from the printer and the computer (if you already connected it). If the printer is connected to your network, leave it connected.
  3. Use one of the available methods to identify your printer model.
    The software and driver results page displays when the printer model is identified.

  5. Under Driver - Product Installation Software, click Download next to the full feature driver (recommended), or click Basic Drivers for other driver download options.
  6. If an HP Download and Install Assistant window displays, select Use HP Download and Install Assistant (Recommended) or Download only, then click Next.
