Re: how do i reconnect my HP deskjet 3050 j610 wireless printer

I had my 3050 J610 set up wirelessly using my Dlink router (no WPA button). I worked fine.

 

Then I went on vacation and took my printer with me. Because I no longer had my wireless network,  I used teh printer with a usb cable.

 

Now I am back home, the printer will no longer connect to my wireless network.  Does it not remember the wireless settings?  Nothing has changed.  Do I have to go through the setup again???

I think you have no choice but to re-connect it, sorry.

Re: how do i reconnect my HP deskjet 3050 j610 wireless printer

Printer was fine, connected to the old router....we switched out routers for something faster.  It has WPS but it says WPS error or wps timed out.  The connection is secured....is there somewhere I should be trying to put in the password?  It just will not connect.  I hooked it up with the usb to reconnect onto the laptop, which it did, but not wirelessly.  It requires the USB to print.  How do I connect it to a new router?  You really haven't answered this question yet.  I went through the set up....but it won't connect to the router.  Same model listed here for the printer the Deskjet 3050 j 610 and a netgear n 600 dual band router.  Thanks in advance for your help.

Re: how do i reconnect my HP deskjet 3050 j610 wireless printer

As you can see from previous post, help from HP Support forum was of no use at all. I asked about inability to re-connect , and response was to reconnect the printer ?????? Fat lot of good that response was.

 

My printer is still conected by USB even although I bought it because of it's wifi capability so I could locate it in central location.

 

I don't seem to be able to find my installation disk. I tried downloading from HP site and whatever it was that I got could not set up my printer, or at least I could not figure out how it could. And I have been around computers for 50+ years.

On the router, make sure that 802.11g mode is enabled.  Also, try WPA encryption and channel 11 on the router.

 

Is the router firmware up to date?

[ Edited ]

I received the following printed out statement:

"Your HP printer cannot find your access point. Check that your access point is powered on. Check that your HP printer network name (SSID) matches your access point network name (SSID) exactly.  If they do not match exactly, run the wireless network setup to configure your HP printer."

 

How do I run the wireless network setup?

On your computer go to the Hewlett-Packard folder and run "Printer Setup and Software"

Re: how do i reconnect my HP deskjet 3050 j610 wireless printer

Can't connect my deskjet 3050a through wireless, even after following the installation steps. I connected the usb which works fine but still can't get it to conect to my computer wirelessly.During installation, it states connect usb temporarily to connect to network and then nothing happens. I don't have access to the router and i'm running windows 8, any advice please?

What router is it?  Is it a corporate-managed router or something?

 

Don't install the software from the CD, download and install the latest software for your printer from the "Support & Drivers" link at the top of this page.
