Re: Cannot connect wirelessly to Photosmart 5510

OK, in the router you are using WPA2-AES encryption, fixed channel like 1,6 or 11 right?  Leave a static IP and make sure it is outside the DHCP range of your router.

Re: Cannot connect wirelessly to Photosmart 5510

That's correct.

 

I just set the IP address again and set it higher than I had it before.  So far iI've been able to print 3 times from each PC .  I'll give a few days and report back either way.  Thanks!

Setting the IP address 'higher' doesn't really tell me anything.  Answer these questions please.

 

What is the starting DHCP IP address set in the router?

What is the ending DHCP IP address set in the router?

What is the static IP of the printer you set?

Starting is 2, ending is 100.  I currently have it set to 192.168.2.250.  It was previously set to 150

Re: Cannot connect wirelessly to Photosmart 5510

I assume the router's IP is 192.168.2.1?

Updating the IP address seems to not be working.  I hadn't tried printing again until this evening, and I am once again, unable to connect wirelessly to this printer.

Re: Cannot connect wirelessly to Photosmart 5510

I have come to the sad conclusion that HP have lost the plot. Ink is far too expensive and lasts about half the amount of printing as my Brother. Also it is forever losing connection to my lap top. Shall never buy another HP
