Steps:

Install the software for your printer and follow the onscreen instructions.

When prompted, select the "Network (Ethernet/Wireless)" connection type and then choose "Yes, send my wireless settings to the printer (recommended)".

Pre-requisites

  • Your computer uses Windows Vista (and newer) and Mac OS X 10.5 (and newer).
  • Your computer uses a wireless connection to your network and the operating system is in control of the wireless adapter so that the HP Software can retrieve the computer's current network settings.
  • Your computer is connected to your network over 2.4GHz.

Note: HP Printers are not compatible with 5.0 GHz networks. You may still be able to connect the printer to your network using other setup methods as long as your router also supports 2.4GHz (as most do).

  • Your computer does not use a static IP address..
  • Your printer is in HP Auto Wireless Connect mode.
