At some time I could not print on my HP Photosmart 6520 anymore.
I decide to remove the printer, and all HP software on my computer. (The printer is the only HP divice I have).
I downloaded the laters driver from HP-site PS6520_1315-1.
During installation I select connect by WIFI and I enter the IP-address of my printer.
But the installation program cannot find my printer.
I can print and scan on this printer from another computer in the same home network.
I can ping the printer from a CMD-window. So the connection is ok.
Who has an idea how tyo solve this problem?

@HermW, Welcome to the HP Support Community!
- Make sure the printer and the PC are connected to the same wireless network.
- This printer supports only 2.4GHz network. So, the PC should be on the 2.4GHz network.
- If you have a Dual-band router and both 2.4GHz and 5GHz networks share the same name/SSID, the printer will not be able to connect to the network. In this case, contact your Internet service provider to assign different names to both the networks.
- Restart the wireless router, the printer, and this computer.
If you are able to ping the printer from this computer, and you get a 0% loss, it means the connectivity is fine.
Use the HP Smart app to print and scan from your Win PC

Thank you for your answer.
But I have the same problem when the laptop is connected via UTP cable to the network.
Ping from the computer to the printer gives 0% loss.
But the HP installation program PS6520_1315-1 gives cannot find the printer (on the same IP-address as the ping command.)
Have you any idea how to solve this problem?
King regards, Herm

Restore the network settings on the printer
Go to Setup > Network > Restore network settings
Go back to Network > Wireless > Wireless setup wizard and select your network.
Now, try installing/printing using the HP Smart app.
Let me know how this goes.

The network was not the problem. I can print from another computer in the same network also.
When I install the printer by the HP SMART app then the printer is installed correctly and I can print.!!!!!!!!!
So the problem is in the PS6520_1315-1 installation program recommended on the HP website.
Thanks for the assistence.
Kind regards, Herm
