To set up an HP printer on a wireless (Wi-Fi) network, install the print driver and software from the HP website. 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 required items, and then check the printer and computer connections.
  1. Gather the following items:
    • Network name: The network name is the SSID.
    • Network password (WEP key or WPA security passphrase)
    • A computer 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. If your printer is connected to the computer with a USB cable, disconnect the cable from the printer.
  3. If prompted, select a method to identify your printer model, and then follow the on-screen instructions to go to the download page.
  4. Click Download next to the full feature driver (recommended), or click Basic Drivers for other driver options.
 caution:
Make sure to connect the USB cable when prompted.
