I have an HP 5520 set up via WiFi to Chromebook. I was able to print documents previously. Now printer noted as 'Offline' and although I have checked that all WiFi settings on the printer are on, and I followed the Wireless Setup WIzard, I cannot get the computer to show that the printer is 'Online.' Also despite the WiFi being connected, the light to the left of the WiFi button is not on at all.
Another issue, while attempting everything to get online with printer, when the Wireless Setup WIzard asked for my Network Name, and instead of selecting the HOME name, I selected a broader, cable/internet name (Xfinity) to see if this would work and now the HOME name does not appear in the drop down list. I tried to re-enter the name, but it did not recognize it (even though I tried several variations, with dash, without dash, with number, without, etc.). Is there a way I can start over and have the printer recognize the Network Name again or how SPECIFICALLY do I enter the Network Name and what is the Pass Phrase the printer is requesting?
Generally speaking, you need to connect your printer to the same wireless network of your chromebook. When you have been asked to enter The Network Name in Wireless Setup Wizard, just enter the same SSID that your chromebook connected to the router. The wifi status of your chrome book is shown on status bar, the bottom right corner of the chromebook display.
Hope this help.
