Integrated wireless WLAN 802.11 network setup
For optimal performance and security in your wireless network, HP recommends you use
a wireless router or access point (802.11) to connect the HP Photosmart and the other
network elements. When network elements are connected through a wireless router or
access point, this is called an infrastructure network.
The advantages of a wireless infrastructure network as compared to an ad hoc network
include:
•
•
•
•
•
Advanced network security
Enhanced reliability
Network flexibility
Better performance, especially with 802.11 g mode
Shared Broadband Internet access
Network setup
To set up the HP Photosmart on an

See this section:
First, collect all of the required materials.
“What you need for an integrated wireless
WLAN 802.11 network” on page 8
Next, connect the HP Photosmart to the
wireless router, and run the Wireless Setup
Wizard.
“Connect to an integrated wireless WLAN
802.11 network” on page 9
Finally, install the software.
“Install the software for a network connection”
on page 14
What you need for an integrated wireless WLAN 802.11 network
To connect the HP Photosmart to an integrated wireless WLAN 802.11 network, you will
need the following:
❑ A wireless 802.11 network that includes a wireless router or access point.
❑ A desktop computer or laptop with either wireless networking support, or a network
interface card (NIC). The computer must be connected to the wireless network that
you intend to install the HP Photosmart on.

Network setup
❑ If you connect the HP Photosmart on a wireless network that has Internet access, HP
recommends that you use a wireless router (access point or base station) that uses
Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP).
❑ Network name (SSID).
❑ WEP key or WPA Passphrase (if needed).
Connect to an integrated wireless WLAN 802.11 network
The Wireless Setup Wizard provides an easy way to connect the HP Photosmart to your
network. You can also use SecureEasySetup, if your wireless router or access point
supports this feature. See the documentation that came with your wireless router or
access point to find out if it supports using EasySetup and for additional setup instructions.
CAUTION: To prevent other users from accessing your wireless network, HP
strongly recommends using a password or passphrase (WPA or WEP security) and
a unique network name (SSID) for your wireless router. Your wireless router might
have been shipped with a default network name, which is typically the manufacturer
name. If you use the default network name, your network can be easily accessed by
other users using the same default network name (SSID). It also means that the
HP Photosmart might accidently connect to a different wireless network in your area
which uses the same network name. If this happens you will not be able to access
the HP Photosmart. For more information on how to change the network name, see
the documentation that came with your wireless router.
To connect the HP Photosmart with the Wireless Setup Wizard
1. Write down the following information about your wireless router or access point:
• Network Name (also called SSID)
• WEP Key, WPA Passphrase (if needed)
If you do not know where to find this information, see the documentation that came
with your wireless router or access point. You might be able to find the network name
(SSID) and the WEP key or WPA passphrase on the Embedded Web Server for the
wireless router.

•
Store ink cartridges at room temperature (15.6°-26.6° C or 60°-78° F).
•
HP recommends that you do not remove the ink cartridges from the HP Photosmart until you
have replacement cartridges available to install.
If you are transporting the HP Photosmart make sure you turn off the device by pressing the
On button to power it down properly. Also, make sure you leave the ink cartridges installed.
Doing these actions will prevent ink leaking from the print head assembly.
•
Clean the print head (via the Printer Toolbox Software maintenance) when you notice a
significant decrease in print quality.
•
Do not clean the print head unnecessarily. This wastes ink and shortens the life of the cartridges.
•
Handle ink cartridges carefully. Dropping, jarring, or rough handling during installation can cause
temporary printing problems.

Ink cartridge yield
Ink from the cartridges is used in the printing process in a number of different ways, including in the
initialization process, which prepares the device and cartridges for printing, and in printhead
servicing, which keeps print nozzles clear and ink flowing smoothly. In addition, some residual ink
is left in the cartridge after it is used. For more information, see www.hp.com/go/inkusage.
