Re: Can't connect printer to my computer

I have made numerous attempts with HP tech to get my "HP Officejet 4622" All in one multifunction printer to connect with my computer. I have been attempting to setup the "wireless" network, but the messages continue to tell me my computer and printer on operating on two different routers. I have spoken to Comcast re: this issue who stated the internet/network system (including their routers) is totally working fine. However, there may be a problem with my printer network configuration or my "new" printer is defective. Keep in mind, the network had worked in the past, but I have no clue why it is not working today!

Re: Can't connect printer to my computer

Reset the printer network settings:

 

Press the (Wireless) button, and then, using the buttons on the right, scroll to and select Wireless Settings, select Restore Defaults, and then select Yes. A message appears stating that the network defaults have been restored.

 

Now, try connecting again.

Re: Can't connect printer to my computer

Boy, it sure would be nice to have some details about the printer and laptop.

 

In the mean time, download and install the latest software for your printer from the "Support & Drivers" link at the top of this page.

Re: Can't connect printer to my computer

Hello Savedby1.  I understand you're unable to print.

What version of Windows do you use?

What printer do you have?

Are you getting any error messages when you try to print?  If so, what are the errors you're receiving?

Were you able to clear the entire paper jam?

I'll keep an eye out for your reply.  Have a wonderful day.

Hi BumHead101,

What kind of firewall/internet security software is installed on your system?

Also, what is the brand and model number of your router?

Thanks.

Re: Can't connect printer to my computer

Hi, may I post mi question here.

I have officejet pro 8500A plus. It is only connected through wifi to may Linksys router. My computer uses de HPeprint wifi services.

I am having trouble to scan from my printer through email. when i try to scan the printer will show me a screen saying i am not connected. But the printer wifi is connect to my network and it prints through eprint. Still it doesn't scan because it says it is not connected. hours latter it may scan. Wifi signal is always at the top acording to the printer.
