Printer will not connect to wireless Network

HP Officejet Pro 8620 e-All-in-One Printer series
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I am having issues with my printer and connecting to my wireless network.  This printer has been installed and working for months and then suddenly it will not connect to the wireless network.

 

I have not changed routers or settings, the printer did work for 6 months or so on this network. 

 

I have attempted factory resets, etc. to get this working with no luck.  The wireless network test results show a No Filtering Fail

 

I have checked my router and MAC address setting is set to allow all.

 

Any help would be greatly apprectiated.

 

Thanks,

The printer was working fine up to about a couple of weeks ago. Just stopped one day. No changes were made to hardware or software.

Printer will not connect to wireless Network

I have attempted this the HP Print and Scan Doctor again in attempts to fix.  This did not work.  My printer will still not connect to the wireless netowork that it had previously been connected to. 

 

I still get an error everytime I attempt a connection and when I print the error page it shows the same message

 

>Settings

 

 - Printer Settings Consistent with Wireless Router Settings                                 PASS

- No Filtering                                                                                                                          FAIL

Printer will not connect to wireless Network

Hi @TSmith88,

 

Thank you for the information.

 

Is the printer connected to the network? Check the wireless light. If the light is steady blue, then the printer is connected to the network. If the light is flashing, then the printer is not connected to the network. Go to Setup - Network - Wireless setup wizard to connect the printer to the network.

 

Once the printer is connected to the network, then assign a static IP to the printer:

 

Obtain the IP address of the printer – You can touch the “wireless” icon on the printer control panel to get the IP address.

Type the IP address on your web browser to obtain the printer EWS page on your computer.

Go to "Network" tab - General - Select "Network protocols" - Select "Enable IPv4 only" (or similar) - Apply the settings.

Go to the “Network” tab – Click on “Wireless (802.11) – Then click on “Network address (IPv4)

Click on the radio button which says “Manual IP” and then click “Suggest a manual IP address” to give a manual IP address to your printer.

Click on radio button which says “Manual DNS Server” and under manual preferred type 8.8.8.8 and under manual alternate type 8.8.4.4 (This is Google DNS server address)

 

Now, try the steps below to install the printer over the network:

First, unplug the USB cable from the printer if present.

Go to Control panel – Programs and feature – Select all the HP Officejet printer entries and uninstall them.

Now go to Control panel – Devices and printer – Select all the printer entries and remove the device.

Restart your computer.

Open the Run window (Press Windows logo key + R), type “services.msc” and press ok to get services window.

Scroll down to “Remote Procedure Call (RPC)” – right-click and go to properties. Make sure the service is started and startup type is “Automatic”.

Now scroll up and go to “Function Discovery Provider Host” – right-click and select properties – Change the startup type to “manual” and start the service.

Repeat the same exercise on “Function Discovery Resource Publication” as well.

Click on http://hp.care/2ptjjHb and install the software.

Select Wireless option on the connection page and then finish the installation.

 

Let me know how it goes and you have a great day!

Take care.

Printer will not connect to wireless Network

While I appreciate the level of detail in your response, it does not address the key issue as stated in my intial subject line.

 

It seems that no matter what I do, I cannot get my printer to connect to my wireless network.  It was previously connected to this same network.  It detects that it is there.  It attempts to connect.  But everytime it fails.   When the report is printed it states that it is a No Filtering Fail.

 

I have attempted to add the MAC address into my router and turned MAC filtering on... no connection.  I have left the MAC address in the router and turned MAC filtering off... no connection.

 

This my entire issue.

 

Thanks,

Same issue, from my research it appears HP updated all of our printers with faulty code, hence why they moved that conversation to "private" message. Well....Please send it to me too!!!!!!
