HP Color Laserjet MFP M477fdn - No wifi connection icon on screen or menu

HP Color Laserjet MFP M477fdn
Microsoft Windows XP

Hi there

 

Just purchased the HP Color Laserjet MFP M477fdn and would like to print via wifi from laptop and  mobile devices.

 

There is an icon in the top right corner of the screen for network connectivity but there is no icon for wifi and seemingly no way of finding a menu for it in Setup.

 

I have connected to the printer via a network cable direct to a router. No USB cable.

 

I have already updated the Firmware and enabled eprinting.

 

I can connect to the printer via 192.168.0.44 but cannot find a wifi enable section

 

The printer prints test pages via the menu, prints emails via e-print and reports. Just can't connect with it via wifi.

 

Chat support offers nothing and noone available to talk to.

 

Many thanks for any help!

 

Adam

Hi,

The M477fdn printer offers USB or Ethernet wired networking, it does not offer any wireless capabilities.

 

The M477fdw or M477fnw printers supports wireless connectivity, not the M477fdn model, as listed by the Wireless section below:

Thanks very much.  Bought the wrong printer but will survive without airprint! 

 

All my very best

You are welcome, Adam.

 

Be aware that the printer does not support wireless capabilities, but it does support AirPrint while connected with an ethernet cable to your network.

Is there an addon card/device (aside from a hotspot) that can be installed to add wifi to this printer? I know in past older HPs you had the option to do that on a few
