Setting Up the Printer for a Wireless Network in Windows XP and Vista for the HP Officejet 6500 and 6500 Wireless All-in-One Printers

Introduction
When you set the printer up on a shared network, you connect and install the printer on a single computer. The computer acts as a host, also called a server, to the printer. All other computers on the network become clients when they print to the printer. This document describes a non-typical installation method for these products.
If you are ready to proceed with installing the printer so that other clients on the network have access to it, proceed with the steps below.
Important! – Sharing devices across your network can allow access across all client computers. If you are unfamiliar with security protocols and protecting access to your data, have your network administrator assist you.

  note:
If you install the printer in a locally shared network environment, only the host computer has full functionality. The client computers have print-only functionality.
