HP Officejet Pro 8600 initial setup

HP Officejet Pro 8600 Premium

Windows XP

 

Just bought this and have 2 questions.

1.  My Windows XP machine doesn't have wifi but is ethernet connected to the internet.  I used the USB set up, but was wondering if there was a way to set up the printer to my network through its wifi and have my XP connect through the ethernet to the printer.  Want to enable e printing etc.

 

2.  My daughter has wifi (iMac running Snow Leopard). 

     A,  I used the iMac built in programs and set up her computer to connect wifi to the HP.  Should I have used the disks enclosed with the HP or is this okay?  It does print but not sure this is the best, because.

  B.  I notice it can take a long time for the HP to wake up from sleep when printing from this computer.  Is that normal?

 


THANKS!
