How do I connect my new 8020e printer to my ASUS laptop using a cable and USB connection, not wireless. Our wireless service is poor.

Thank you for posting on the HP Support Community.

Don't worry as I'll be glad to help, however, to provide an accurate resolution, I need a few more details:

  • Have you installed all the required printer software and driver on your Asus laptop?

I would also clarify regarding your printer usage, did you applied the HP Plus plan (see more about it below)?


If you did enable HP Plus, which provides an additional 1-year warranty and provide up to 6-month of Instant Ink plan for free and use HP Instant Ink, the printer requires a solid internet connection to work so the connection problems should be corrected for the network
