Cannot connect C4780 to the new wireless network

I have a HP C4780 printer. We moved recently and I am trying to install on / connect to our new wireless network (new SSID). I have Verizon FiOS, but seems not support WPS configuration connection.

I don't have the CD that came with the printer.

When I connect to my iMac via USB, the printer connects automatically.

What I don't know is how to connect wireless - where to enter the SSID / WPA-2, etc.

I tried dozens of paths of online help - I thought I had SOME clues of what I was doing, but apparently not.

Y at - there anyone who can help?

Thank you



Hi mbwiles,

I watched Cougar and found that it is Mac OS X 10.8.  The driver for 10.8 is not available for download from HP that you saw.   A Windows laptop would try to get the printer on the network and then the Mac could see.  Of course a Mac laptop with an earlier version would also work as long as the driver is available for download.

  • HP OfficeJet Pro 8610: Printer cannot connect to the new wireless network

    I got the OfficeJet Pro for a while and everything worked very well (including wireless printing from my Mac and iPad AirPrint). Yesterday, we got a new Modem Router (from Ubee). As I tried to connect the printer with the new network, I fail miserably.

    Here's what I've tried several times: on the small screen of the printer, I select: Network Setup > wireless setting > Wireless Setup wizzard. The printer seems to networks, find the network and asks me the password, I get the password (I did this several times, so no typos!). The printer then "trying to connect to the network"... then it crashes: for a very short moment, I get a blue screen with a white error code (not always the same, for example.) B3FF3802) and then the message "error in the printer, turn off the power, then press.

    I turned off the printer and turn it back on several times (incl. pulling out the power plug and restart after a while), but when I go through the steps above, but I just get the same endresult.

    I deleted the old network as I feared it might interfere with the creation of the new network. No noticeable effect.

    I printed the "results of the wireless network test," which confirms that "your HP printer is unable to connect to your wireless router. In the results of the diagnosis, he states that 'network name (SSID) was found - Fail.

    I quite understand the message that the printer detects the network and shows good SSID / network name. I thought to enter the SSID manually but can't find where I could do.

    I'd be very grateful for any suggestions on what could be the problem (I can't imagine that the printer would not work with a new router... I searched the internet and found stuff on 'Hello compatibility', but do not know which is the issue I'm facing.

  • B209a printer cannot find the new wireless network

    Let me start that I am not very tech savy to start so I read other discussions related to this and could not find a snwer to solve my problem.

    I upgraded my router wireless internet 10 days ago and since then my printer cannot find a wireless connection. That's what I've tried so far, I tried to restart the printer, unpluging it and pluging reconnect, restart my router, myrouter to reset (which knocked my internet at home for hours). The rest of my Office Home phones and cell phones all pick up my network, but my printer can't seem to find it. He said only: "No connection found" on the touch screen.

    I run a wireless network Test report, and he says that he cannot find a SSID. But when I printed on a Page of Configuration of HP network it states that he discovered 5 networks, including mine.

    My wireless router is a rhythm. I have not installed it, did the tech from my service provider. He seemed brand new. I have no way to update its firmware (whatever it is).

    Any help would be appreciated.

    I have solved my problem after reading this thread.

  • locked settings by the adiministrator system and unable to connect with the new wireless network

    I changed my ISP and routers.  I need to change the settings to the new router wireless.  However, when I try to access the network settings on the printer through the screen on the printer, it is said that it is locked by the system administrator.  I am the admin.  Where can I access it without being on the network?  I tried to reset to the default values of factpry, but the same problem exists; It is blocked by the system administrator.

    I was able to solve the problem.  I went through the set up using the USB cord.  Then I switched it to wireless technology.

  • Cannot connect officejet 6500 to a wireless network on a MacMini

    Product: HP OfficeJet 6500 E710n-z

    Firmware version: CIP1FN1126AR

    Operating system: Mac OS 10.6.8

    Error message: unable to connect to the network. MAC address filtering can be enabled on your wireless router...

    Analytical diagnosis:... No filtering: FAILURE

    Here's the implementation. My MacMini is connected directly to the Internet. I turned on Internet Sharing in OS X to share ethernet connection of the MacMini to the Internet through an integrated Wi - Fi AirPort card from the MacMini. Other devices such as iPhones are able to see the connection network and access after I provide the right WEP password.

    The HP printer see the Wi - Fi, but after that I provide the correct WEP password, it still does not connect and tells me that I must have active filtering by MAC address. The HP is still unable to connect wireless even when I disable firewall in Mac OS x.

    I cannot find any setting in Mac OS X to enter the MAC address of the printer.

    I would like to be able to use wireless printers features, but can't because I can't clear the checkpoint.

    Help, please.

    I was able to get the printer and the computer communicate wirelessly by following these steps:

    1. connect the printer directly to the computer via an ethernet cable.

    2. open the Utility from HP (version 5.0.1) application > click the settings > in group settings of the printer , click additional settings > click Open built-in Web server .

    3. once the built-in Web server opens, click on the network tab, and then click the Advanced Options link in the group Wireless (802.11) in the left navigation sidebar.

    4.1 Network Interface onvalue.

    4.2 under network name, set RITS at the same entrance shown in System Preferences > sharing > Internet sharing > AirPort Options > network name field.
    4.3 under network settings, select Infrastructure.

    4.4 Select WEP encryption.

    4.5 authentication sharedvalue.

    4.6. Enter the appropriate WEP key WEP key and confirm the WEP key fields.

    4.7 click the apply button to save the changes.

    5. unplug the printer from the computer by disconnecting the ethernet cable.

    6 re - activate sharing Internet on your Mac if necessary (i.e. If you disabled in step 4.2 to get the SSID name).

    After having done that, I am now able to print documents from my MacMini to my HP OfficeJet wireless. I have not tested other functions of the printer to see if I can scan, fax or set up ePrint AirPrint, but at least for basic printing I can do wireless (for now).

    That will suffice until I can buy a dedicated wireless as an AirPort Extreme router.

    I can't remove this lock of wi - fi switch or fn + F8 probably it's the lock of the bios.

    I tried to unlock it on Windows Vista, Windows 7, Ubuntu, so it is not caused by software.

    If anyone can help?

    To me, it seems that you used is not compatible Wlan module.
    But I found this thread:

    A user was unable to activate new update Intel Wlan card.
    According to some information, its possible to enable the Wlan card by covering pin 13 on the wireless Mini-PCI network card.
    But to be honest I've ever tried and I would use this workaround with caution.

  • How to connect my Canon MP 495 to a new wireless network?

    I have a Canon MP 495, which worked without any problems. We moved into a new House and I have a new wireless network; I can't the printer reconnected to the new wireless network. How can I do this? The drivers are already installed on the computer.

    Hi 1cor29,

    Since you have changed the locations, you will need to reinstall the drivers on your computer to connect the printer to your network.  We reinstall the printer using the latest drivers on the Canon USA site.  Before reinstalling drivers, you want to make sure that the LAN setting wireless on the printer is enabled. To do this, press the Maintenance key (it looks like a pair of pliers and screwdriver) until the symbol that looks like 'G' appears on the LCD screen, then press the button to activate the wireless LAN.

    Once the wire has been enabled, please click here to access the DRIVERS AND SOFTWARE for the PIXMA MP495 page.  Once the initial download to your model page, follow these steps:

    1. check that the operating system detected in the "OPERATING SYSTEM" drop is correct and if this isn't the case, please click on the drop down menu to select your operating system.

    2. then, click the red arrow next to the "RECOMMENDED FOR YOU" section and click on the drivers of MP file. When you do, a red DOWNLOAD button will appear. Please click the box below the button DOWNLOAD, and then click DOWNLOAD to start the download. The time for the download process can vary depending on the speed of your Internet connection and the size of the file being downloaded.

    Once the file is downloaded, please double-click it to reinstall the printer.  Once the drivers have been resettled, you should be able to print.

    I hope this helps!

  • How can I connect my netbook to the printer on the same wireless network?

    My home wireless network is well established and includes a wireless printer.  I'm usin my HP netbook now and for the purposes of the internet, it is connected to the same wireless network.  However, I can't the netbook to detect the wireless printer so that I can install it.  Help, please.  Thank you

    It is often easier - especially with the HP printers - to launch the installation CD for the printer to the new computer and let the installation program find the printer for you.  (But I forgot... your netbook is not a CD player.)  You could try to copy the files from the printer installation CD - if you have a CD, a USB key and use it to install the printer.)

    I support this.  HP drivers to connect to printers more easily when you allow the installation of the driver detect the printer.  I had several HP devices and their installation is smooth when I do that.

  • Ad Hoc network. even if the network is active and is connected to the internet my devices cannot connect and then the network shuts down.

    I'm living in a college dorm and only have access to the internet via a hard line to my computer. So I wanted to give my other accessibility of consumer electronics set up an Ad-Hoc network and share the internet connection. When I originally set up the network it works fine, but after the devices go to sleep or I leave the room it stops working. I had problems to keep the internet connection to share continually, which I fixed it. I then had a DHCP problem with the hard line that has been resolved through troubleshooting function. Now, even if the network is active and is connected to the internet my devices cannot connect and then the network shuts down.

    Is there a way to create an Ad Hoc network that works similar to a wireless router, so when my computer is turned, it works automatically? If so, how can I make this happen without these problems?


    I suggest to activate temporarily the antivirus as well as windows firewall and check if it helps.

    Important note: Antivirus software can help protect your computer against viruses and other security threats. In most cases, you should not disable your antivirus software. If you need to disable temporarily to install other software, you must reactivate as soon as you are finished. If you are connected to the Internet or a network, while your antivirus software is disabled, your computer is vulnerable to attacks.

    Disable the anti-virus software

    Enable or disable Windows Firewall

    For reference:

    Set up a computer-to-computer (ad hoc) network

    Hi Jer9009,

    Welcome to the Microsoft answers site.

    ·         Could you give the exact error code or error number you get?

    To connect multiple computers, install a network adapter in each and run a network CAT5 cabling to connect each one to a hub (and thus the other.) The computer that will serve as a transition will have a standard network card for wired and a wireless network adapter that will connect to the wireless (WAP) access point or gateway on the second network.

    A network bridge is software or hardware that connects two networks or more so that they can communicate. You can create only a single bridge network on a computer, but a bridge can handle any number of network connections.

    Only, I had to reformat my Latitude D31 and don't know how to do the wireless network connection appears on the list of network connections.  The without line is turned on and the router works.

    On a relative (sort of) topic, before reformat, I got a blue screen that says since more memory was used that was installed, there was no memory for something else.  The computer is running (I reinstalled Windows XP, but in Setup the message still arrives.  Is this normal?


    Old laptops use to come with very little memory.  Since then, software exceed the amount of memory installed

    Check the amount of memory you have and see if you can upgrade.

    You can find and expanded manual on Dell' support for the laptop.

    Regarding the wireless.

    It is possible that the wireless card is not operational and need to reinstall drivers.

    Maybe this can help.

    Check the Device Manager for the wireless card valid entry.


    If there is no valid entry, remove any entry from fake and re - install the drivers for the wireless card.

    Check network connections to make sure that you have a network icon/entry wireless connection, and that the properties of the icon (right-click on the icon) are correctly configured with the TCP/IPv4 protocol in the properties of network connections.


    Make sure that if there is Wireless Utility a utility vendor is not running with the native Windows wireless utility.

    Make sure you firewall No. preventing / blocks wireless components to join the network.
