       do i need to install the supplied software to all notebooks and pc,s that will be wirelessly connected to the HP printer ? .. and if not how do i connect the laptops to the printer

       my router is a "BT HOME HUB 3.0" ... and i understand the advanced features of this... however theres nothing in the advanced settings that allows me to add this printer.... when i did the set-up on the printers small screen it asked me to insert a key into my hubs configuration settings..... which i cant

Re: HP DESKJET 3050A WIRELESS CONNECTION....SOLVED !

(SOLVED) ......

          i managed to sort out the problem... i installed the supplied software in my wifes acer laptop ( which is the device i wanted to use ) and at the end of the installation i selected "network" connection and it configured the wireless printer to the laptop... however the printer is a "unsecure" network ... but since i wont be leaving the wireless printer on all the time this shouldnt be a problem... however any suggestions on how to secure the wireless printer connection will be much appreciated

          many thanks guys

Hi brianthesnail, 

 

The wireless security is setup in your router. You will need to log into your router, and setup your wireless security encryption. Refer to your routers user guide to make changes to your router.

Hi cabernet,

 

The HP 3050a printer doesn't have an ADF - Automatic document feeder.

 

What printer do you have?

 

What is the operating system you have it installed?

Hi cabernet,

 

No, i am sorry this model doesn't have a ADF. You will need to place the documents on the glass to scan them.

Hi cabernet,

 

If you are needing a ADF then you will want to check out our Photosmart or Officejet line of printers. Check out the printer on the link below to figure out what would fit you best.
