Re: why won't my laptop connect to my wireless printer

I have the same problem ,

 

I'm using MAC 0S 10.7.5

 

Last week I purchased a HP-Print-50-Photosmart 5520. It could connect fine with my router and the e-print works well.

 

However, the wireless direct printing was not working... although i could see my HP 5520 printer thru WI-fi using all my other devices, i could not  connect to it.

 

Solution 1: I disabled the Wireless Direct security feature, and everything started to work. All my devices could see it AND finally connect to it. The printer worked for 2 weeks and then the connection issues appears again.

 

I tried to enable/disable the wireless direct printing but didn't work. Do you know what the problem may be?

 

 

 

 

 

now,  I cannot access the EWS security page....  the password is given to me by my printer.... but the user name seem to not working ( itried admin or HP-Print-50-Photosmart 5520)... do you know how i can reset the user name or which user name I should try?

 

 

Thank you  in advance :smileyhappy:

Re: why won't my laptop connect to my wireless printer

If you have a router and the printer is wirelessly connected to it, why do you want to use wireless direct?

Re: why won't my laptop connect to my wireless printer

On the front of the printer, go to Setup > Network > WIreless Setup Wizard.  Run it.

 

On you laptop, download and install the latest software for your printer from the "Support & Drivers" link at the top of this page.

 

Make sure there is no USB cable connected to the printer, then when installing the software select "Wireless" as the installation type.

Re: why won't my laptop connect to my wireless printer

OK, this could be a router issue.  Were there any error messages?  What did they say?

 

What router are you using?  Try restarting it by pulling its power plug out of the back for 10 seconds or so, then try again.

 

Also, this may help: http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?docname=c03286146&cc=us&dlc=en&lc=en

What does it say?

Re: why won't my laptop connect to my wireless printer

I used to be able to print from my lap top to my printer by wireless, now it will not connect.  I have changed internet companies could that be it?

Re: why won't my laptop connect to my wireless printer

Unplug the power cord going into the back of the router to reboot it, then retry...
