Re: HP Deskjet 3055A Unable to connect on wireless

There is a document with steps to install this series printer on a wireless network.  This document can be found here.

 

Also, if the printer cannot see the router (SSID), then it is possible the network is using hidden broadcast.  Make sure the SSID is being broadcast so that the printer can find the network.

 

Also, have you tried power cycling the network system?  

* Unplug router, wait 20 seconds, and plug back in

* After router has restarted, then restart the PC

* While PC is restarting, power cycle the printer

 

Let me know how it goes.

After a few hours messing about with my computer setting I finally got things to work. The sett= up instruction were not very clear for a 78 year old but I cracked it. Thanks for your response

Sorry to hear that it wasn't easy to accomplish, but I am glad to hear you are up and going.  I hope the best in all your future printing needs.

 

Happy Printing.

Re: HP Deskjet 3055A Unable to connect on wireless

I have moved back to the UK from France and have lost my manual for my HP Deskjet 3055A printer. Is there a site which shows how to do this in simple language.

thanks in advance

Printer Hint #1 - Always buy a printer with a display panel for easy configuration.
Printer Hint #2 - Always buy a printer with separate black and separate color cartridges.
Printer Hint #3 - Always buy a wireless printer with an Ethernet port for backup.
