HP Officejet 6600, 6700 Printers - Wireless Printer Setup (Windows)

This document is for HP Officejet 6600 and 6700 Premium e-All-in-One printers on a computer with Windows.
To set up an HP printer on a wireless (Wi-Fi) network, connect the printer to the network, then install the printer driver and software from the HP website on a computer with Windows. When prompted during the installation, select Wireless as the connection type.

Step 1: Prepare for the connection

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 cables from the printer.

Step 2: Connect to the wireless network

The Wireless Setup Wizard provides an easy way to set up and manage the wireless connection to your printer.
  1. Press the Power button to turn on the printer.
  2. Touch the right arrow to display the second navigation screen.
  3. Touch Setup , and then touch Network.
  4. Touch Wireless Setup Wizard, and then touch Continue. The Wireless Setup Wizard searches for networks, and then displays them in a list.
  5. If necessary, touch the down arrow to scroll through the network names until you find yours.
  6. Touch the name of your network, and then touch OK.
    If the list does not contain your network name, touch Refresh. The Wireless Setup Wizard searches for networks again, and then displays them in another list. Check the list for your network.
  7. If prompted, enter the WEP key or WPA key:
If a connection error message displays, make sure the network name and security key are correct, and then follow the prompts to enter the information again.

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.
