Re: i want to connect my hp 8600 via usb cable

Yes, set it up as a wireless printer first and get all of your computers printing with it.


You can even connect it over the network to your primary computer and not use USB, even if your primary computer is not wireless.  As long as it is connected to your wireless router (wired or wireless) it will work.

I am employed by HP
