Re: how do i enable my hp6500 for wireless use

Hello Drmom,


With the 6500, to enable the wireless i would do the following,

(on the printer)

- Go into Setup

-Then tap on network

- Once there go to Wireless

-from there tap On Wireless Setup Wizard

-Allow it to Locate you In home Wireless network

-tap on it and allow it to connect

- if your network has a Wpa/Wep Pass phrase/key you will need to enter it in order to connect

-after that the Printer should be Able to connect given the correct info was entered

I am an HP employee.
