5255 Office jet 4 in 1
Microsoft Windows 7 (64-bit)

I have an HP5255 Office Jet printer working fine wirelessly with one computer, (Win 7), but cannot get 2nd computer, also Win7, to print. It appears to recognize the printer, but won't print. I've reinstalled the software.

@Toolman89, Welcome to the HP Support Community!

 

I understand you are not able to print wirelessly from the second computer. To assist you better, do you get any errors?

  • Make sure the printer and the PC are connected to the same wireless network. Either 2.4 or 5GHz 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.

Run HP Print and Scan Doctor to diagnose and fix any driver issue
