Wireless networking

Need networking help?

www.hp.com/go/wirelessprinting

The HP Wireless Printing Center at www.hp.com/go/wirelessprinting can help you prepare your wireless network, set up or reconfigure your printer, and troubleshoot networking problems.

If connecting your printer to the network was unsuccessful

Confirm that wireless is enabled on your printer.

  1. From the printer control panel, touch (Wireless).
  2. If it shows Wireless Off, touch (Settings), and then turn wireless on.
    • Confirm that your printer is connected to your network.
  3. From your printer control panel, touch (Wireless).
  4. Touch (Settings).
  5. Touch Print Reports, and then touch Wireless Test Report. The Wireless Test Report is automatically printed.
  6. Check the top of the report to see if something failed during the test.
    •  See the DIAGNOSTICS RESULTS section for all tests that were performed, to determine whether or not your printer passed.
    • From the CURRENT CONFIGURATION section, find out the Network Name (SSID) to which your printer is currently connected. Make sure that the printer is connected to the same network as your computer.
  7. If a print report indicates the printer is not connected to the network, touch (Wireless), then touch (Settings), and touch Wireless Setup Wizard to connect the printer to the network.

Note: If your computer is connected to a Virtual Private Network (VPN), temporarily disconnect from the VPN before proceeding with the installation. After installation you will need to disconnect from the VPN to access your printer over your home network.

  • Make sure security software is not blocking communication over your network.

Security software, such as firewalls, can block communication between your computer and printer when installing over a network. If your printer cannot be found, temporarily disable your firewall and check if the problem goes away. For more help and tips on security software, go to: www.hp.com/go/wpc-firewall.

  • Restart components of the wireless network.

Turn off the router and the printer, and then turn them back on in this order: router first and then printer. Sometimes, turning off devices and then turning them back on helps resolve network communication issues. If you still cannot connect, turn off the router, the printer, and the computer, and then turn them back on in this order: router first, then printer, and then computer. If you still have problems, visit the HP Wireless Printing Center (www.hp.com/go/wirelessprinting). This website contains the most complete, up-to-date information about wireless printing, as well as information to help you prepare your wireless network; solve problems when connecting the printer to the wireless network; and resolve security software issues.

Note: If you are using a computer running Windows, you can use the Print and Scan Doctor tool, which can help solve many problems you might have with the printer. To download this tool, visit www.hp.com/go/tools.

If you want to share your printer with multiple computers on your network

First install your printer on your home network. After you have successfully connected your printer to your home network, you can share your printer with other computers on the same network. For each additional computer you only need to install the HP printer software. You can also print from mobile devices connected to your home network. For Android 4.0 devices and higher, install the HP Print Plugins or enprint application. For iOS devices, you can use Imprint.

Wireless networking (continued)

If you want to change from a USB connection to a wireless connection

First make sure that you have already successfully installed your printer software.

Windows

  1. Do one of the following according to your operating system:
    • Windows 8.1: Click the down arrow in lower left corner of the Start screen, select the printer name, and then click Utilities
    • Windows 8: On the Start screen, right-click an empty area on the screen, click All Apps on the app bar
    • Windows 7, Windows Vista, and Windows XP: From the computer’s Start menu, select All Programs or Programs, and then select HP.
  1. Select the printer name.
  2. Select Printer Setup & Software.
  3. Select Convert a USB connected printer to wireless. Follow the on-screen instructions.

Mac

Use HP Utility in Applications / HP to change the software connection to wireless for this printer.

If you want to use the printer wirelessly without a router

Use Wi-Fi Direct to print wirelessly without a router, from your computer, smartphone, or other wireless enabled device. To use Wi-Fi Direct from a computer, the printer software must be installed on the computer.

  • Make sure that Wi-Fi Direct on your printer is turned on.
  • From the Home screen on the printer display, touch (Wi-Fi Direct).
  • If Status is Off, touch (Wi-Fi Direct Settings) and turn Wi-Fi Direct on.
  • Connect your wireless enabled device to your printer.

Mobile devices that support Wi-Fi Direct: Select a document from a print enabled application, and then select the option to print the document. From the list of available printers, choose the Wi-Fi Direct name shown such as DIRECT-**-HP OfficeJet-4650 (where ** are the unique characters to identify your printer), and then follow the on-screen instructions on the printer and your mobile device.

Note: This product is designed to be used by those with access to the printer’s network in a private environment, whether in the home or office, not via a public internet network where anyone may have access to the printer. As a result, the Wi-Fi Direct setting is in “Automatic” mode by default, without an administrator password; this allows anyone in wireless range to connect and access all functions and settings of the printer. If higher security levels are desired, HP recommends changing the Wi-Fi Direct Connection Method from “Automatic” to “Manual” and establishing an administrator password.

Computers or mobile devices that do not support Wi-Fi Direct: From the mobile device, connect to a new network. Use the process you normally use to connect to a new wireless network or hotspot. Choose the Wi-Fi Direct name from the list of wireless networks shown such as DIRECT-**-HP OfficeJet-4650 and type the WPA2 password when prompted. Touch (Wi-Fi Direct) on the printer display to find the WPA2 password.

  • Print as you normally do from your computer or mobile device.

Note: Wi-Fi Direct connection does not provide Internet access.

Visit the HP Wireless Printing Center at www.hp.com/go/wirelessprinting for more information about Wi-Fi Direct.

If you want to print with Air Print

This printer is Apple Air Print™ enabled. You can print wirelessly from your iOS device or Mac.

  • Your printer and iOS device or Mac must be on the same wireless network.
  • With Apple Air Print™, you cannot scan documents from the printer to your iOS device

You must be available to respond in person to incoming fax calls. (If you want to receive faxes automatically, contact your phone company to subscribe to a distinctive ring service or to obtain a separate phone line for faxing.) The printer can store received faxes in its internal memory. To reprint these faxes, see “Reprint received faxes from memory” on the next page.

Use fax (continued)

Receive a fax manually

If you are on the phone with another person, you can receive faxes manually without hanging up the phone.

  1. Make sure the printer is turned on and paper is loaded.
  2. Remove any originals from the document feeder.

Set Rings to Answer to a higher number to allow you time to answer the incoming call before the printer does. Or turn off Auto Answer so that the printer does not automatically answer incoming calls.

Cannot send but can receive faxes

  1. Perform a copy or scan to ensure that the printer is working properly.
  1. Check the physical fax connections.
  2. Check if other fax devices can send to the same phone number. The receiving fax device might have blocked your phone number, or it might be having technical problems.
  1. If the problem persists, print the fax test report and fax log (and if available, the Caller ID report and Junk Fax report), and then contact HP for further help.

Cannot receive but can send faxes

  1. Check the fax settings on the printer.
  2. Check the physical fax connections.
  3. Check if other devices connected to the same phone line can receive faxes. The phone line might be faulty or the sending fax device might be having problems sending faxes. You might also want to check if you have blocked the sender’s phone number.
  4. Check the problem with the sender. If the problem persists, print the fax test report and fax log (and if available, the Caller ID report and Junk Fax report),and then contact HP for further help.

Cannot send and receive faxes

  2. working properly.
  3. Check the physical fax connections.
  4. Check the fax settings on the printer.
  5. Check if other devices connected to this phone line can send or receive faxes. There might be a problem with the phone line.
  6. Reset the printer by turning off the printer and, if possible, the main switch of the power supply. Wait for a few seconds before turning on the power again. Try to send or receive a fax on the printer.
  7. If the problem persists, print the fax test report and fax log (and if available, the Caller ID report and Junk Fax report), and then contact HP for further help.

Note: If you have subscribed to a voice mail service on the same phone line used for faxing, you will have to receive faxes manually.

Check the printer fax settings

  • The Auto Answer feature is turned on for the printer to receive fax automatically.
  • If you have a telephone answering machine service from the phone company or service provider, ensure that the Rings to Answer on the printer is set to be more than that of the telephone answering machine. The printer will monitor the line and decide if an incoming call is a normal phone call or fax call. If it is a fax call, the printer will start a fax connection automatically. Otherwise, you might have to receive the fax manually by selecting Fax on the printer display.
  • If multiple phone numbers are assigned to the same physical phone line and the line is shared by multiple devices, ensure that the printer is set to the correct distinctive ring setting for receiving faxes.

Check the physical fax connections

  • Connect the phone cord from the 1-LINE port on the back of the printer to the phone wall jack and connect a phone cord from the 2-EXT port on the back of the printer to an extension phone. From the extension phone, call the phone number that failed to receive the faxes.
  • If you were trying to fax to an external number, be sure to include any required access code or numbers prior to entering the number. You might also need to add a pause in the number to prevent the printer from dialing too fast; to add a pause, press * repeatedly until a dash (-) appears on the display.
  • If you cannot make any outgoing calls because no dial tone is detected or the line is noisy, try using another phone cord in place of the one connected to the 1-LINE phone port, or move the printer to another location which has a separate phone line (if possible) and see if there are similar problems.
  • If you are in a digital phone environment (such as fax on VoIP), reduce the fax speed and turn off the Error Code Modulation (ECM) from the printer control panel. If needed, contact your phone company to find out if there are problems with the phone line or to learn more about the capabilities of the phone network.
