Can't connect HP Office Jet Pro 8600 to new Hitron Coda-4589 Modem.

Similar comments tell me that other have had same problem.  Spent an hour on phone with my internet supplier.  He suggested separating 2.4 from 2 Mhz bands ("disabling band steering").  Also turned on WPS.  Nothing really helped.  Several comments on this site made me think the solution was to change authority level from WPA2-PSK to "WPA-PSK or WPA2-PSK"-- but I read most devices (such as HP's I presume) would have been WPA2 compliant over 10 years ago and my printer isn't that old.  Plus, the router won't let me change that setting.  

The only thing I haven't done yet is go through that long list of disconnecting all devices, but may next weekend.  Other thought is that maybe I needed to update my printer with firmware that would have addressed this problem.  May try doing this by connecting a cable to computer.

Thank you for posting on the HP Support Community.


Don't worry as I'll be glad to help, I have a few troubleshooting steps we could try to fix the issue:  

Root level uninstall and reinstallation: 

  • 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.
  • Then press the "windows key" + "r" to get the "Run" window open - Type "printui.exe /s" and press enter.
  • Under print server properties, go to drivers - remove any entry there as well.
  • Again, go to run window, type – “c:/programdata” – Go to Hewlett Packard folder, remove any printer related folders & files.

Reinstall basic printer drivers:


If the issue persists, I would suggest you install Windows built-in drivers


Since you would be installing basic/windows, built-in drivers, I would suggest you install HP Scan and Capture app


Hope this helps! Keep me posted for further assistance.
