Install a HP printer

Solution

Below are the easy-to-follow instructions to install a HP wireless printer using HP Auto Wireless Connect.

  • Prerequisites for using the HP Auto Wireless Connect feature include:

  1. Windows Vista or later/ Apple OS X 10.5 (Leopard) or later.
  2. 802.11b/g/n wireless router over 2.4 GHz connection.
  3. Wireless adapter.
  4. Dynamic IP address.

  • Download the latest HP printer software from its official website. (Select the right software that is meant for your PC’s operating system as well as printer model.)

  • Run the installer by following the on-screen instructions and establish connection. Select “Network (Wireless/ Ethernet)” and select “Yes” and send my wireless settings to the printer. The installer performs the remaining setup process automatically.


Note: As your computer is temporarily disconnected from the Internet during HP Auto wireless connect setup, ensure you get over with the online downloads before.
