You can also check if there is an old facility of the printer in Control Panel, printers, right click and delete it. Install the printer using the Add Printer Wizard.

  • Message of invalid argument while trying to install a wireless printer

    I am trying to install a wireless printer from Brother on my laptop which is running Vista. I also have a desktop that runs XP. I have not had any problems for the printer set up and running on XP. However, on Vista, during the installation of the Brother software, I get a message of "arguments are not valid.

  • How can I install the same printer twice?

    How can I install the same printer twice, with different printer for each preferences? I got my printer configured this way with my old Win XP system, but can't find a way to do it with Windows 7.

    I do it all the time.  The devices folder and printer stacks multiple instances on the same device on top of the first unit (since it's the same device).  If you have Pro or Ultimate, you can use the UI created by the spooler, printmanagement.msc team, to manage your local printers.  The former team of spooler printers folder is also around, but it's really hidden.

    This command will launch the printers (no authorized device) folder

  • Cannot set up and install a wireless printer. HP Photosmart the 427 UDP Port

    I know this question has been posted several times, and before I go, I want to report that I was researching spending last week and try every possible solution I've read. So I hope that someone can offer some new or still has outstanding question.

    Equipment: HP laptop, Windows 7, HP Photosmart Plus B209 all-in-one, Netgear WNDR3700 (Dual Band), Norton 360 Antivirus/Firewall

    My laptop and printer are both about two years. I have the wireless printer set up in my previous home on a different network (more old netgear router). No issues what so ever.

    So I recently moved into a new home, bought a new router and set up a wireless network. Everything works fine without thread; two laptops, xbox, ps3, tv, cell phones, etc.). I finally had time to set up the printer. USB works fine. But it can not configure for wireless use. I get the infamous (together with HP printers) error message that my computer cannot communicate with the printer and I need to open port 427 UDP. Tried twice more, but no dice.

    Uninstalled all HP software and the printer driver and re-downloaded/installed the latest things from HP website. Tried to install the printer and Wireless Setup again, but still no dice. USB works fine.

    And there began my long trip. Here is the list of things that I did without success, and I'm sure I did right. Turn off my firewall (norton and windows). Opens UDP Port 427 (norton and windows). 427 on my router (port forwarding) open UDP port. Maunally added the printer through windows as a wireless device. Manually add a network printer.

    I still get the same error of UDP port 427. Please PLEASE help me. tI really want to fix this and refuse to believe that something as simple as it is not repairable. Printers are cheap and I don't mind buying a new one (not HP), but I have enough stubborn to give my with trivial issues such as this.


    Thanks for the reply.

    I suggest you contact HP support for help.

    Hope this information helps.



    I assume you mean that you have a Packard Bell netbook which doesn't have a CD player.

    You can download the necessary software on the Internet and install it without the CD.  The location of base for your printer is here-->

    Most netbooks come with Windows 7 Starter, so for a better response, please indicate the model of your computer and the version of Windows you have installed (right click on desktop and select properties for this information).

    You have a wireless router? If so, what is its brand & model?
    The printer came with a USB cable (even if in the end, you want to print wireless)?

  • How can I get my wireless printer to my wifi network?

    As the HP Installation Wizard does not work with the Mavericks, is there another way to get my printer wireless connected to my wifi network? This printer (HP Officejet Pro 8000 A809) works well with the Mavericks on my old wifi network. But my DSL provider has recently installed a new router, so I have a new wifi network which works fine with everything else.

    I was able to get my two Airport Express to join my new network, using Airport utility, but I'm stumped as to how to get my printer to join the new network without the help of the HP installation wizard.

    Following the advice of Shlomi, I managed to reset my printer so that it now appears in my list of networks wifi under devices, such as hpsetup. But I got. Any help would be more approeciated.

    -Unplug the usb cable from the printer if you have connected

    -restore the network printer hpsetup (hold down the power button / stop and press the button x 2 network and then cancel 3 x, release power button).

    -Print the wireless network test report (hold down the button to network and update support 2 x). Check the ssid network name is hsetup

    -arrived in sys prefs > network and change the mac to hpsetup wireless network

    -go to the sys pref > print scanning

    -Add the HP 8000 printer

    -Click the supplies button and options and click on the printer to show Web page

    -Click on the Networking tab > wireless in the left pane > start networking wizard and change the network of hpsetup to your network

    -Return to the sys prefs and change the network wireless to your networt

    -go to the printer and print the wireless network test report (updated 2 x key and press the network button).  Make sure that the SSID is your network

    -go to system prefs > print scan > select your printer > options & supplies > see the printer Web page > network info (check ssid and compare it to the wireless network test report)

  • How to connect a USB-wireless printer to a wireless network without PC

    Some HP printers do not have a Wizard of wireless configuration integrated into the façade to connect to a network.  These models install to a computer via a USB connection and the software then sends information wireless via the USB cable to the printer.  However, you do not always have a present computer and still need to connect these printers to a wireless network.  You can use a wireless, like an iPad device, to do this.  For the example below, I used an iPad and a printer Deskjet 3510.

    The first step is to make sure that your printer is aired at an (Ad Hoc) network.  To do this, turn on the printer and press the wireless or wireless Tower, and then in the Setup menu. Connect the iPad (or other wireless device) to the signal being broadcast by the printer wireless.

    Once the iPad is connected to the printer as long as a network connection, open the Web browser on the iPad.  Type in the address bar and go to this site.  Printer status page should load and look like the picture below.

    Click the network at the top of the status page.  You can get a quick warning while being redirected to an HTTPS site.  Click Ok in the message box to continue.  When you click OK, you can get a warning about the identity of the server or the certificate.  Select the option that allows you to continue.  The wording can vary from a browser, but there should be an option to continue anyway.

    Network status page should now be loaded at this point.  Select Assistant wireless to start the installation of the wireless network and click Next.

    When then is selected, it must list the available wireless networks.  Select your network from the list and click Next.  When the network is selected, it should be noted.

    Enter the network password if necessary and click Next.

    A message should be received indicating the name and if security is enabled.  The message below which must indicate that the settings have been saved successfully.  If it indicates that the settings were saved successfully with an error, the configuration of the network is more than likely operation.  Click Ok at the bottom.

    After selecting OK, select status to check that the printer is connected successfully.  It may take a few minutes for light wireless to the printer to stop flashing.  Once it is a solid blue, the printer must be on the network and operation.

    Once this is over, then you will be able to reconnect to your wireless (wireless router) normal signal for internet access.  Now, the iPad and the printer are on the same home network.

    I hope this helps.

  • What is a WEP key and where can I find it. I am trying to install a wireless printer.

    I am trying to install a PRINTER WITHOUT WIRE of Canon MX340. I'm not a user manual. The printer asks for the WEP key.  I don't know what WEP nor where to find key information.  Help, please?  Thank you


    Here's what it is

    Response: A WEP key is a security code used on some Wi - Fi networks. The WEP keys allows a group of devices on a local network (for example, a home network) to exchange messages encoded with others while hiding the content of the messages to facilitate visualization by foreigners.

    A WEP key is a sequence of hexadecimal digits. These figures include the numbers 0 to 9 and the letters A through F. Some examples of WEP keys are:

    • 1A648C9FE2
    • 99D767BAC38EA23B0C0176D15

    The WEP keys are chosen by a network administrator. The WEP keys are defined on routers, adapters , and other Wi - Fi wireless network devices. Correspondence of the WEP keys must be set on each device for them to communicate with each other.

See the manual that came with your PC for instructions on how to reinstall Windows.
    -Samsung uses ESC on most of its systems

  • How to make deskjet f2210 wireless printing

    OK, so as the topic says I want to do a deskjet f2210 print wirelessly from my laptop. If it is not possible to cool. just need to know if it is possible and how to do it.

    Well, you can't really.  It is a single USB connection.  You COULD connect it to a wireless router special with a USB port for printers.  If you do this, it will print wireless but does not scan.

    It may be easier to get just a new printer.
