HP J6400 All-in-One Printer Series - Reconfiguring Wireless Network Settings

Introduction

This document explains how to reconfigure the printer's wireless network settings. If you reset your router, or changed any of your network settings, such as renaming the network, or adding security, you might need to reconfigure. The reconfiguration process communicates the new network settings to your HP printer through a temporary USB cable connection.
You need the following items:
  • A USB cable
  • Your network name (SSID)
  • Your network security key, if your network uses security

Reconfiguring wireless network settings

Follow these steps to reconfigure the settings.

Step one: Download the printer software

  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. Go to HP Drivers & Downloads. If prompted, type your printer model number, click Go, and then click Drivers.
  4. Make sure that your operating system is selected, and then click Next.
  5. Scroll down the page, and then click Driver.
  6. Click Download, and then follow the on-screen instructions to save the software to your computer.

Step two: Reconfigure the wireless network settings

  1. Open the folder where the software file saved (usually Downloads), and then double-click the file. The Launch Pad screen displays.
  2. Click Reconfigure Network Settings.
  3. When prompted, connect one end of the USB cable to the USB port at the back of the printer and the other end to the computer.
