Solved!

HP7525 wifi frequency 2.4 and 5.0?

HP Recommended
Photosmart 7525
Windows 7

I have a Motorola router SBG6580 that I've had to set to 5.0ghz in order to get faster speeds on my laptops. It's not an auto dual band router unfortunately.

Anyway,,,when I made this change it lost contact with my HP 7525 which leads me to believe that the printer only communicates via 2.4ghz,,,is this correct?  Is there a software update to the 7525 to make it communicate over 5.0ghz frequentcy or can I hook up a USB wifi dongle to the printer in order to communicate via 5.0ghz?

Hi,

 

It uses 2.4GHz. No, you can't hook dongle to ist USB port to make 5GHz.

Thanks. Yeah I read this 2.4ghz in the manual after my post of course but hoped a usb dongle might be a fix.

Can't believe HP wouldn't install a dual band wifi card but then I guess speed isn't an issue as much as it is with a laptop.

Hi,

 

You are talking about adding more $$ to the price of a printer here and with 5GHz, your printer won't print faster.

Understood,,,my real problem is in my router, it's a Motorola sbg6580 which is a manual dual band.  I manually switched it to 5.0ghz so to get faster speeds on my families laptops which is great but then I lost communication with my printer which as you know is only 2.4ghz. so my only choices are to switch the router back to 2.4ghz or buy a new router that's auto dual band.  yep it's all about $$$$ as usual.  can't win. lol
