NOTE: If you encounter problems connecting the printer, see Unable to connect the printer

TIP: For more information about setting up and using the printer wirelessly, visit the HP Wireless

Printing Center (www.hp.com/go/wirelessprinting).

Before you begin

Ensure the following:

The printer is not connected to the network using an Ethernet cable.

The wireless network is set up and working properly.

The printer and the computers that use the printer are on the same network (subnet).

While connecting the printer, you might be prompted to enter the wireless network name (SSID) and

a wireless password.

The wireless network name is the name of your wireless network.

The wireless password prevents other people from connecting to your wireless network without

your permission. Depending on the level of security required, your wireless network might use

either a WPA key or WEP passphrase.

If you have not changed the network name or the security passkey since setting up your wireless

network, you can sometimes find them on the back or side of the wireless router.

If you cannot find the network name or the security password or cannot remember this information,

see the documentation provided with your computer or with the wireless router. If you still cannot find

this information, contact your network administrator or the person who set up the wireless network.
