I purchased a Photosmart c4580 for the wireless capabilities because we are on the road alot, but I can't seem to set it up.
I have a Verizon broadband Pantech usb connection for internet and I guess it doesn't recognize that.
How would I go about setting this up with my HP dv7 notebook with Vista 64 without a router?
I use the Norton Internet security. Don't know what the heck I'm doing
Thanks for the help(:

When you first turn on the printer's Wi-Fi radio (press the Wi-Fi button on the printer's front panel and then select Enable Wireless), the printer will be in Ad-Hoc wireless network mode that should allow your notebook to connect directly.
Note that you may have to restore the printer's network configuration if you've had the printer connected to a network before.
From your notebook, you should be able to scan and connect to a wireless network called "hpsetup". When you connect, it may take several minutes for the notebook to recognize the printer but when it does, you should be able to install the SW to print directly to the printer wirelessly.

Thank you so much, Jim B, for your time. I appreciate it! Your instructions worked and the printer is printing wirelessly! I will be happily printing all day.
Have a great day , Jan
