Wireless set-up p1102w with mac OS X 10.10

HP Recommended
p1102w
Mac OS X 10.10 Yosemite

I have tried to set up the wireless printing function on 1102w and I can't find the option at all. I can print using USB.

I downloaded the drivers from the internet as per instructions, but there does not seem to be any configuration/setup routine to go through at all. At no point has any network identifier been asked for etc..

Hey @Jambol_Albion,

 

Welcome to the HP Support Forums!

 

I see that you are having some issues with connecting your Laserjet P1102w Printer to your wireless network using your Mac OSX 10.10 machine. I can help you with that.

 

First, I'll mention that connecting the printer to your network using a Windows PC is easier. If you are unable to borrow or use a Windows PC instead, the following steps should allow you to connect the printer. If you can borrow a PC, please let me know what version of Windows and I can provide a link to the drivers that will do the below automatically.

 

Preparing the Printer

  1. Turn the printer off.
  2. While the printer is powered off, hold down both buttons on the top of the printer.
  3. While holding down the buttons on the top of the printer, turn the printer on.
  4. Keep the buttons held down for another ten seconds.

Setting up the Printer Wirelessly

  1. Make sure the printer is connected to your Mac through the USB cable. 
  2. Click on your Apple icon, System Preferences, and Printers and Scanners.
  3. Click on your printer icon on the left.
  4. Click on Open Print Queue, Printer Setup, Printer Utility, open Printer Utility, and HTML Config.
  5. (If the above step produces an error, change your default browser to Safari. Please let me know if you need assistance with that).
  6. In this new window click on the Networking tab and then Wireless on the left.
  7. Under Communication Mode select Infrastructure.
  8. Select your network from the list and then click on the button with the arrows.
  9. Under Security Mode select WPA/WPA 2. If you have an old router, you may need to select WEP instead.
  10. Enter your wireless password in the field below.
  11. Click on Apply.

Now wait a couple of minutes. Your printer should change to having a solid blue light. If it does not, either the password was entered incorrectly or there's a setting on the router that the printer is having an issue resolving. Please let me know if this is the case.

 

Once you have a solid blue light:

  1. Remove the USB cable.
  2. Return to the Printers and Scanners Window.
  3. Hold down the control key and click on the icon of the printer on the left.
  4. Click on Reset Printing System.
  5. Click on the plus button in the bottom left corner.
  6. In this window select your printer from the list.
  7. Click in the box next to Use and select your printer from the list.
  8. Click on Add.

Please let me know if you are able to print or the results after following the above. If you can print, please click on Accept Solution. If you appreciate my help, please click on the thumbs up icon. Both icons are below this post.
