Get started
This guide complements the information in the printed Setup Guide and the User Guide
that came with your HP all-in-one. It describes how to set up your HP all-in-one in a
network, which includes configuring and connecting the device, and installing the
software. This guide also provides examples of recommended networks, network
management information, and troubleshooting tips.
Connecting your HP all-in-one to a network enables you to share your HP all-in-one and
all of its capabilities with every computer on the network. However, if you do not intend
to connect to a network and want a direct USB connection instead, please see the
Setup Guide for information.

Choose a recommended
Ethernet network
Use this chapter to help you identify what kind of Ethernet network you already have in
place or want to set up. Each network shown here uses a device, such as an Ethernet
router, to connect the network elements. A network connected in this manner is called
an infrastructure network. An Ethernet network provides superior performance,
reliability, and network security.
Ethernet networks might or might not be connected to the Internet. If you place your
HP all-in-one on an Ethernet network connected to the Internet, it is recommended that
you use a gateway so that the HP all-in-one’s IP address is assigned dynamically
through Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP). A gateway can either be a
router or a Windows computer running Internet Connection Sharing (ICS).
Note For definitions of terms not defined here, see the Glossary.
We recommend the wired LAN (local area network) configurations below to support
your HP all-in-one.
Ethernet connection to a wired network with DSL or cable
Internet access
If your network has DSL or cable Internet access, you can use either a router or a
computer as the Internet gateway. With either DSL or cable, you are able to access the
full functionality of your HP all-in-one, including sharing pictures over the Internet with
HP Instant Share.
Router gateway
In this example, a router manages the network connections, and a DSL or cable modem
provides Internet access. If you use this configuration, connect your HP all-in-one to the
router with an Ethernet cable.
With this configuration, you are able to access the full functionality of the HP all-in-one,
including sharing pictures over the Internet . For connection instructions, see Connect
with an Ethernet cable.
Computer gateway
HP all-in-one Network Guide
5
Chapter 2
In this example, the network devices are connected to a switch or router. A computer on
the network acts as the gateway between the network and the Internet. The gateway
computer uses Windows Internet Connection Sharing (ICS) or similar software to
manage the network connections and provide Internet access to the other devices.
Note If the computer acting as a gateway is turned off, the other computers on the
network will lose their Internet connection. The HP all-in-one will not support
Internet-related functions.
If you use this configuration, connect your HP all-in-one to the switch or router with an
Ethernet cable. For connection instructions, see Connect with an Ethernet cable.
Ethernet connection to a wired network with modem
Internet access
In this example, the network devices are connected to a switch or router, and a modem
(shown here connected to the computer on the left) provides Internet access. The
modem is connected to the computer using a phone cord and jack. Only one computer
has Internet access. Neither the HP all-in-one nor any of the other computers on the
network have access to the Internet. If you use this configuration, connect your HP allin-one to the switch or router with an Ethernet cable. For connection instructions, see
Connect with an Ethernet cable.
Note In order to use the HP Instant Share features on your HP all-in-one, you will need
broadband Internet access, such as cable or DSL. For more information about
HP Instant Share, see the printed User Guide that came with your HP all-in-one.
6
Ethernet connection to a wired network without Internet
In this example, the network devices are connected to a switch or router, and there is no
Internet connection. Devices use AutoIP, which means IP addresses are configured
automatically. If you have this configuration, connect your HP all-in-one to the switch or
router with an Ethernet cable. For connection instructions, see Connect with an
Ethernet cable.
Note In order to use the HP Instant Share features on your HP all-in-one, you will need
broadband Internet access, such as cable or DSL. For more information about
HP Instant Share, see the printed User Guide that came with your HP all-in-one.
Ethernet connection to a wireless network
Your access point connects a wired device to a wireless network. In this model, your
computer is configured for wireless networking using a wireless network adapter, and
transfers and receives data through the access point. Your HP all-in-one is configured
for wired networking and is connected with an Ethernet cable to the access point. A
DSL or cable modem can provide Internet access. For connection instructions, see
Connect with an Ethernet cable.
Note In this configuration, we recommend that you route the Internet connection
directly through the access point using an Ethernet cable.

an Ethernet cable.
For ideas on how to set up a wired network, see Choose a recommended Ethernet
network.
Note For definitions of terms not defined here, see the Glossary.
To connect your HP all-in-one to your computer, first see the next section for the things
you will need. When you are finished connecting your HP all-in-one, you will need to
install the software as described in Install the software.
What you need
●
●
●
A functional Ethernet network that includes an Ethernet router, switch, or a wireless
access point with Ethernet ports.
CAT-5 Ethernet cable. If the Ethernet cable provided is not long enough for your
network configuration, you might need to purchase a longer cable.
Although standard Ethernet cables look similar to standard telephone cables, they
are not interchangeable. There is a different number of wires in each one, and each
has a different connector. An Ethernet cable connector (also called an RJ-45
connector) is wider and thicker and always has 8 contacts on the end. A phone
connector has between 2 and 6 contacts.
A desktop computer or laptop with either a wired or wireless connection to the
router or access point.

Firmware
Revision
The internal networking component and device firmware revision code
separated by a hyphen.
Note If you call in for support, depending on the problem, you might be
asked to provide the firmware revision code.
Hostname
The TCP/IP name assigned by the install software to the device. By default,
this is the letters HP followed by the last 6 digits of the MAC address.
IP Address
This address uniquely identifies the device on the network. IP addresses are
assigned dynamically through DHCP or AutoIP. You can also set up a static
IP address, though this is not recommended.
Note Manually assigning an invalid IP address during install will prevent
your network components from seeing the HP all-in-one.
HP all-in-one Network Guide

Subnet Mask
A subnet is an IP address assigned by the install software to make an
additional network available as part of a larger network. Subnets are
specified by a subnet mask. This mask determines which of the HP all-in-one
IP address bits identify the network and subnet, and which bits identify the
device itself.
Note It is recommended that the HP all-in-one and the computers that use
it all reside on the same subnet.
Default
Gateway
A node on a network that serves as an entrance to another network. A node
in this instance can be a computer or some other device.
Note The address of the default gateway is assigned by the install
software.
Configuration
Source
The protocol used to assign the IP address to the HP all-in-one:
●
●
●
●
DNS Server
AutoIP: the installation software automatically determines the
configuration parameters.
DHCP: the configuration parameters are supplied by a dynamic host
configuration protocol (DHCP) server on the network. On small
networks, this could be a router.
Manual: the configuration parameters are set manually, such as a
static IP address.
Not Specified: the mode used when the HP all-in-one is initializing.
The IP address of the domain name service (DNS) for the network. When
you use the web or send an e-mail message, you use a domain name to do
it. For example, the URL http://www.hp.com contains the domain name hp.
com. The DNS on the Internet translates the domain name into an IP
address. Devices use the IP addresses to refer to one another.
●
●
IP Address: the domain name server's IP address.
Not Specified: the IP address is not specified, or the device is
initializing.
Note Check to see if a DNS IP address appears on the network
configuration page. If no address is shown, obtain the DNS IP
address from your Internet service provider (ISP). The DNS IP
address is required to use HP Instant Share from the device, and can
be entered through the Embedded Web Server.
mDNS
Rendezvous is used with local and ad hoc networks that don't use central
DNS servers. To perform name services, Rendezvous uses a DNS
alternative called mDNS.
With mDNS, your computer can find and use any HP all-in-one connected to
your local area network. It can also work with any other Ethernet-enabled
device that appears on the network.
Admin
Password
Status of the administrator's password for the Embedded Web Server:
●
●
22
Set: password is specified. You must enter the password to make
changes to the Embedded Web Server parameters.
Not Set: no password is set. A password is not required for making
changes to the Embedded Web Server parameters.
(continued)
Link
Configuration
The speed at which data is transmitted over a network:
●
●
●
●
●
●
802.11b: for wireless network.
10TX-Full: for wired network.
10TX-Half: for wired network.
100TX-Full: for wired network.
100TX-Half: for wired network.
None: networking is disabled.
Wireless network settings
The following table describes the wireless network settings shown on the network configuration
page.
Parameter
Description
Wireless Status
Status of the wireless network:
●
●
●
●
Communication
Mode
Connected: the HP all-in-one is connected to a wireless LAN and
everything is working.
Disconnected: the HP all-in-one is not connected to the wireless LAN
due to incorrect settings (such as the wrong WEP key), or the HP allin-one is out of range.
Disabled: either the radio is turned off, or the Ethernet cable is plugged
in.
Not applicable: this parameter does not apply to this network type.
An IEEE 802.11 networking framework in which devices or stations
communicate with each other:
●
●
●
Infrastructure: the HP all-in-one communicates with other network
devices through a wireless access point, such as a wireless router or
base station.
ad hoc: the HP all-in-one communicates directly with each device on
the network. No wireless access point is used. This is also called a
peer-to-peer network. On Macintosh networks, ad hoc mode is called
computer-to-computer mode.
Not applicable: this parameter does not apply to this network type.
Network Name
(SSID)
Service Set Identifier. A unique identifier (up to 32 characters) that
differentiates one wireless local area network (WLAN) from another. The
SSID is also referred to as the network name. This is the name of the
network to which the HP all-in-one is connected.
Signal Strength
(1-5)
The transmitting or return signal graded on a scale of 1 to 5:
Channel
The channel number currently being used for wireless communication. This
depends on the network in use, and might differ from the requested channel
HP all-in-one Network Guide
●
●
●
●
●
●
●
5: Excellent
4: Good
3: Fair
2: Poor

number. Value is from 1 to 14; countries/regions might limit the range of
approved channels.
●
●
●
<number>: value ranging from 1 to 14, depending on country/region.
None: no channel is in use.
Not Applicable: the WLAN is disabled or this parameter does not apply
to this network type.
Note In ad hoc mode, if you are not able to receive or transmit data
between your computer and the HP all-in-one, make sure that you are
using the same communication channel on your computer and the
HP all-in-one. In infrastructure mode, the channel is dictated by the
access point.
Authentication
type
Type of authentication in use:
●
●
●
●
●
None: no authentication in use.
Open System (ad hoc and infrastructure): no authentication.
Shared Key (infrastructure only): WEP key is required.
WPA-PSK (infrastructure only): WPA with Pre-Shared Key.
Not applicable: this parameter does not apply to this network type.
Authentication verifies the identity of a user or device before granting access
to the network, making it more difficult for unauthorized users to get at
network resources. This security method is common on wireless networks.
A network using Open System authentication does not screen network users
based on their identities. Any wireless user can have access from the
network. However, such a network might use WEP (Wired Equivalent
Privacy) encryption to provide a first level of security against casual
eavesdroppers.
A network using Shared Key authentication provides increased security by
requiring users or devices to identify themselves with a static key (a
hexadecimal or alphanumeric string). Every user or device on the network
shares the same key. WEP encryption is used along with shared key
authentication, using the same key for both authentication and encryption.
A network using server-based (WPA-PSK) authentication provides
significantly stronger security, and is supported in most wireless access
points and wireless routers. The access point or router verifies the identity of a
user or device requesting access to the network before granting that access.
Several different authentication protocols might be used on an authentication
server.
Note Shared key and WPA-PSK authentication can only be entered
through the Embedded Web Server.
Encryption
The type of encryption in use on the network:
●
●
●
●
●
24
None: no encryption is in use.
64-bit WEP: a 5-character or 10-hex-digit WEP key is in use.
128-bit WEP: a 13-character or 26-hex-digit WEP key is in use.
WPA-AES: Advanced Encryption Standard encryption is in use. This is
an encryption algorithm for securing sensitive but unclassified material
by US Government agencies.
WPA-TKIP: Temporal Key Integrity Protocol, an advanced encryption
protocol, is in use.
(continued)
●
●
Automatic: AES or TKIP is in use.
Not applicable: this parameter does not apply to this network type.
WEP aims to provide security by encrypting data over radio waves so that it
is protected as it is transmitted from one end point to another. This security
method is common on wireless networks.
Access Point HW The hardware address of the access point on the network to which the
HP all-in-one is connected:
Address
●
●
<MAC address>: the unique MAC (media access control) hardware
address of the access point.
Not applicable: this parameter does not apply to this network type.

Glossary
ASCII
American Standard Code for Information Interchange. The standard for
numbers used by computers to represent all the uppercase and lowercase
Latin letters, numbers, punctuation, etc.
autoIP
A feature of the installation software, which determines the configuration
parameters of devices on the network.
DHCP
Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol. A server on the network that
supplies configuration parameters to devices on the network. On small
networks, this could be a router.
DNS
Domain Name Service. When you use the web or send an e-mail
message, you use a domain name to do it. For example, the URL http://
www.hp.com contains the domain name hp.com. The DNS on the
Internet translates the domain name into an IP address. Devices use the
IP addresses to refer to one another.
DNS-SD
See DNS. The SD portion stands for Service Discovery. This is part of a
protocol developed by Apple that enables automatic discovery of
computers, devices, and services on IP networks.
DSL
Digital Subscriber Line. A high-speed connection to the Internet.
Ethernet
The most common local network technology that connects computers
using copper cabling.
Ethernet cable
The cable used to connect network elements in a wired network. The
CAT-5 Ethernet cable is also known as a straight-through cable. When
using an Ethernet cable, the network elements must be attached to a
router. The Ethernet cable uses an RJ-45 connector.
EWS
Embedded Web Server. A browser-based utility that provides a simple
way to manage your HP all-in-one. You can monitor status, configure
HP all-in-one networking parameters, or access HP all-in-one features.
For more information, see Use the Embedded Web Server.
HEX
Hexidecimal. The base 16 numbering system, which uses the digits 0-9
plus the letters A-F.
hub
No longer used much in modern home networks, a hub takes its signal
from each computer and sends it to all of the other computers connected
to the hub. Hubs, are passive; other devices on the network plug into the
hub in order to communicate with one another. A hub does not manage
the network.
IP address
A number that uniquely identifies the device on the network. IP addresses
are assigned dynamically through DHCP or AutoIP. You can also set up a
static IP address, though this is not recommended.
infrastructure
An infrastructure network uses a router, switch, or access point to
connect network elements.

MAC address
Media Access Control (MAC) address that uniquely identifies the HP allin-one. This is a unique 12-digit identification number assigned to
networking hardware for identification. No two pieces of hardware have
the same MAC address.
NIC
Network Interface Card. A card on your computer that provides an
Ethernet connection so that you can connect your computer to a network.
RJ-45 connector
The connector on the ends of an Ethernet cable. Although standard
Ethernet cable connectors (RJ-45 connectors) look similar to standard
telephone cable connectors, they are not interchangeable. An RJ-45
connector is wider and thicker and always has 8 contacts on the end. A
phone connector has between 2 and 6 contacts.
SSID
Service Set Identifier. A unique identifier (up to 32 characters) that
differentiates one wireless local area network (WLAN) from another. The
SSID is also referred to as the network name. This is the name of the
network to which the HP all-in-one is connected.
router
A router provides a bridge between two or more networks. A router can
link a network to the Internet, link two networks and connect both to the
Internet, and help secure networks through the use of firewalls and
assigning dynamic addresses. A router can also act as a gateway, while a
switch cannot.
switch
A switch makes it possible for several users to send information over a
network at the same time without slowing each other down. Switches allow
different nodes (a network connection point, typically a computer) of a
network to communicate directly with one another.
