My MacBook air doesn't connect with my HP Officejet 6500A. Doesn't find 'nearby printers'

[ Edited ]

My MacBook Air doesn't connect with my new HP Officejet 6500A.

I have successfully registered with ePrint, but can't do a simple print at home as I can't get my MacBook Air (OS X) to find the printer.

Hi there,

Could you provide the community with a little more information to help narrow troubleshooting? Which version of osx are we using?

Many thanks for getting back to me.  My MacBook uses Mac OS X Version 10.7.4

It works beautifully with the printer when I use a connector wire.
