Connect HP Deskjet 3050 to new wireless network?

I recently moved and need to connect my printer to a new wireless network, and I can't figure out how.

 

I have a Deskjet 3050 All-in-One J610a printer, and use OSx 10.8.  I've connected it to this computer before, so I know it will work, I just can't figure out how to change the wifi settings.

 

Thanks!

You would have to go to the WIRELESS SETTINGS on the printer.
1. Select WPS
2. Select PIN (your router pass code)

If you do not have the drivers and software downloaded already, just install the CD.
Here is a link that will help you with the network connection if needed. (USER GUIDE, Chapter 7, PAGE 35)

Connect HP Deskjet 3050 to new wireless network?

Hi there,

 

I understand you're wanting to connect your Deskjet 3050 to your new wireless router. I would be happy to help you with this issue!

 

To set the printer up on your new network you will need the USB cable that came with your printer and the software CD. Insert the software CD into the computer and you should get a screen with an option to Connect New Printer. Once you've clicked that it should ask you how you're connecting and you will say wireless. The on screen instructions will tell you when to connect the USB cable and when to disconnect it. Once you've followed the steps the information should be updated on your printer and you should be able to print via the wireless connection again.

 

Hope this helps, have a great day!

I had a similar situation recently. Here is how I was able to resolve it. On the tiny control panel of the printer, press the Wireless button. That should launch the Wireless options menu. Choose Wireless Settings from there. Then choose WPS. It should say that there are two options - Push Button and PIN. Choose Push Button. Press and hold the WPS button on the router for 3 seconds and then it it go. The printer should connect to the new wireless network in about 2 minutes or less. After it is successfully connected to the wireless network, it should give you an opton to print the wireless network test page. If you go ahead, it should print all the config. details along with their status/values.

 

If you had ended up connecting the printer to your machine (mac or windows) via USB cable, you can remove that printer now and add it back (the machine should be able to see the printer on the wirless network as long as it is also connetced to the same network). Then you are good to go.

 

Hope this helps.

This was perfect. It described the exact steps required on the printer (with the tiny screen) and the router. It took about three minutes to connect the printer to my home network.

 

Thanks for the solution.

Connect HP Deskjet 3050 to new wireless network?

I recently got a new router and password so I had to reconfigure my printer as well. Here is exactly what I did:

 

1. Open the HP Print and Scan Doctor (if you don't already have it installed I think you can search it on HP Downloads)

2. After it searches for products, click your printer and make sure it's the one with (network) beside it

3. Click next

4. It should instruct you to plug in your USB

5. When I plugged it in, it didn't automatically refresh so I had to manually close and reopen the Scan Doctor

6. Running the scan again, it asks if it can automatically detect your new wireless settings; select this one

7. I clicked next and that's it!

 

Hope this is helpful to someone! HP is terrible about putting actual useful information on their official help pages, so I know how you all feel
