WPS and the B209 printer

Hi. Installed my B209a printer under Vista and it worked fine. I have since upgraded to Windows 7 and now I am having issues in connecting wirelessly with printer. I have gone through the setup with the USB cable with no problem. But the can't connect when I remove the cable to be wireless. I have WEP (which is how it was working before) and when I go to the printer and use WPS to find the network, it fails or finds my neighbors.

 

Can I use the B209a printer wirelessly without WPS like I did before?

Re: WPS and the B209 printer

I need help as well! I had downloaded and installed everything needed at my last house and everything worked fine. I have recently moved and changed routers. Now, I cannot get my wireless working. I too have the b209a Photosmart Plus. When I try to find my network, nothing shows. I tried the  "push button" one as well at the "pin" one and both have messages that read "WPS time out". My network is not even showing up. Please helllppppp

Re: WPS and the B209 printer

what kind of router did you change too, and does it have/support WPS (WiFi Protected Setup)?

is the router set to broadcast the network SSID?

since you are using a different router, did you also change any of the wireless network settings?

generally you start WPS (either button or PIN) on the wireless router first, then go to the device you are trying to connect with.
