Connection issues with HP Photosmart B110a

Hi all,


I have connected my HP Photosmart B110a to my router and the test page appears to be fine.


I cannot seem to be able to connect any devices to it though.


I use to have it set up so my ipad, iphone and laptops could see it, but it does not appear.


Any ideas?


The router is new, although it is the same as the one that i previously had.

Hello beneficent.


If you have your printer connected to the wireless router, it won't be available to be connected to another devices directly. Only when these devices are connected to the same router as the printer.

Laptops connected to the same router would be able to detect the printer if the printer's driver is installed (Windows / Mac).

Re: Connection issues with HP Photosmart B110a

I have my printer tied directly to the computer that did not allow me to print from my laptop or phone nor Ipad.   I also tried plugging directly to the router and that did not work either.  At this point  my laptop does find my printer on the network but the printer cannot print.  Any other suggestions?  If I leave it plugged directly into my Imac it will print just fine from there but I cannot use any other computer to be able to print....Please help what is it I am doing wrong?


Very Frustrated to say the least.  I just want to be able to print using other devises that is why I purchased that printer when I purchased my New IMac.Woman Frustrated
