Wireless connection do not work on my HP M1217NFW


I just bought a m1217nfw printer and I'm trying to configure my Wireless connection.

While doing it, the printer detects My network as WPA/WPA2, I'm writing my password but the pairing is not being made,

claims that it cannot access the wireless network - therefore, I cannot proceed with my installation.


I'm using a D-Link router (Model: DSL-2760U/E1) with WPA2-PSK encryption.

More interesting is that even while I disable any encryption and make it an open network the connection is still unsuccessful.


You help is required,

Many thanks - Eliran.

HP recommends that you download and install the Print and Scan Doctor any time you need to troubleshoot a problem with your HP printer from the link below.
