Does the Envy 5055 have a wired connection capability?

HP Recommended
Example: Pavilion 6Envy 5055
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I am in a hotel, both my laptop and my printer are on networks, but apparently not the same network; while the IT service in the hotel is attempting a fix, I am thinking to get a cable and print/scan on a wired connection.  I cannot recall if this is possible with an Envy 5055

Firstly I would not connect my printer to a public network, that is one way to invite others to use my printer with very expensive inks. You should be able to connect direct but for your environment this could cause online/offline very often.


Yes, your printer supports USB connection, all you have to do is to buy a USB printer cable (for few dollars). The flat end goes to the computer and the square end goes to the back of printer.


            USB Type A to Type B Cable


Note: you also need to install printer software/drivers as we always have to do.



Note again: I will move this post to Printer board.
