HP ENVY4500 & want 5530: wired connections

It seems that I need to replace my Photosmart7762 (too bad, it has served me well) and is considering one or the other of above (4500 ENVY OR JEALOUSY 5530) but as my regular wireless system fails I want to connect through a USB cable. They are both announced as a Wi - Fi connection, but I have to use the USB connection.


Hi Stanalm,

I did a quick check of product for connectivitiy specifications: The Envy 4500 is able USB the 5530 like.



Two of these printers can be wireless or USB.

Enjoy your new printer!

  • Color LaserJet Pro M277c6 MFP: MFP M277c6 unable to connect with a wired connection

    Just bought and installed M277c6.  It connects and can communicate via USB and wireless networks.  However it does not work via the WIRED ethernet connection, I need to get this printer works on the WIRED network.

    That's what I see...

    Power on the M277c6 and I see the link on the router port light will blink twice.  However after that the M277c6 has finished loading, the link light goes out and when I print the summary of network - the printer think that the "cable is not connected", but it is connected.

    I tried the following:

    1 tried 3 different network CAT 5 cables (I checked all 3 cables work as I can use them with my office to get on the internet)

    2 tried 4 different ports ethernet on the router (I checked that all router 4 ports work as I can use them with my office to get on the internet)

    3 restarted the router, printer and computer several times

    I also installed the latest firmware from the HP for the M277c6 site and have the latest version of the software on my computer to Win7 64-bit.


    1. how to activate the WIRED port that is enabled on the M277c6?

    2. How can I get M277c6 to communicate via ethernet WIRED?

    Appreciate pointers and help...  I also tried to work with HP CAT and both times they took control at distance of my deskop, but have been unable to solve the problems.  Unfortunately, they have disconnected cat, whenever I asked how to get the work of WIRED connection as they both wanted to ONLY get my wireless to work.

    Thank you!

    First thing to try is to reset back to factory defaults. In no joy, I suspect that the Ethernet port is defective in the printer.

  • m276n: print from a mobile device using a wired connection on the printer


    I am considering buying the printer m276n for use in the home. I have a small Home Office on the top floor of my house which is out of range of my wifi signal but has a wired connection to the same router that broadcasts the wifi signal. I want to put the printer and connect it via a wired connection to the network. I know that it works perfectly for all windows home computers that are attached to the same network (wired and wireless), as long as I give you a fixed IP address to the printer.

    But since we use mobile devices more and more (apple and android) it will be a nice to have to print those as well. I watched Eprint Airprint movies, but all tell me that the printer must be connected wireless. Is it a necessity or my proposed wired installation will work just as well?

    Hi @MartijnS ,

    I see by your post that you would like to know if you can use the ePrint Airprint functionality with the printer and when it is configured on the network via an Ethernet connection. I can certainly help you.

    The ePrint and Airprint feature work when a printer is connected to a network. It can be wired or wireless to the router.

    Here is the document with a little information for print from an Apple Mobile Device.

    The documentation shows also wireless, but again, it works through a wired too.

    I hope this helps.

    Have a great day!
    Thank you.

  • Wi-wired connections and on the same laptop

    I have a laptop with Windows 7, a Netgear router and DSL internet access. The laptop has two wired network and wireless cards. I have both wireless and wired connections and connected and activated with the Netgear router. There is another laptop computer on my network, here at home, it works under Windows 7 and only uses the connection to my router wireless. When my laptop starts and connects to the router selects the wireless connection, at least that's what appears on the taskbar. Are there advantages or disadvantages with both wired and connections active wireless on my laptop at the same time? Wouldn't be better to have either one or the other active connection?

    Hello Don,

    Thanks for posting your question on the Forum of the Microsoft community.

    It is always very well if you have both wired and wireless connections. Windows automatically uses the one with the highest speed.

    When more than one network connection is available, Windows uses the one with the lowest metric value.  By default, it automatically assigns a metric value based on the rated speed of the network connection.

    An explanation of the Automatic metric for Internet Protocol routes feature

    If you want Windows to use a specific network connection, you can assign a metric value for each of them, giving the lowest value to the desired connection. Use the following steps:

    a. press Windows + R and type buttons ncpa.cpl in the run, and then open network connections window.

    b. right click on the desired connection.

    c. click Properties, and then select Internet Protocol Version 4.

    d. click Properties and then click Advanced.

    e. uncheck "Automatic metric.

    f. enter a number between 1 and 9999 for the 'metric of the Interface.

    I hope this information helps.

    Please let us know if you need more help.

  • Option of assigning wireless via a wired connection?

    I know that running Windows in VMware Fusion he sees any connection as a wired connection, network, even if my Macbook Pro is connected wireless. What I'm wondering is - it, if I have two assets of connections (wired and wireless), is there a way to assign the wireless to VMware and say do not to use the wired connection?

    Thank you

    Since bridges merge default to the main network adapter of the host and by default if the Ethernet and airport are active then Ethernet is the primary but you have a few options if you want to adjust which Fusion adapter is connected to.  Earlier current Fusion also does not provide a GUI in a GA release to change this, however you can manually edit the file "/ Library/Application Support/VMware Fusion/boot.sh" or [email protected] Tokamak allows you to automate the process or change the order of Service to the airport primary Ethernet vs.

    If you want to manually edit and then take a look on: or manually force Fusion to use specific or connections network interfaces

    If you want to use a script take a look to: Advanced Networking Configuration - Tokamak Networking Scripts for VMware Fusion

    Note: There is also a beta version, you can try for the feature added by DaveP post Re: Scripts to manage the merger of network settings.

    If you do not want to change the boot.sh or use the Tokamak you can make your airport the main...

    Click the Apple (menu) > System Preferences > then under Internet & wireless network

    On the network map click the gear below icon adapters listed and choose set Service order...

    Click and drag the airport is above Ethernet in the list then click OK and then click on apply.

    This will then put airport over Ethernet on the list when they are active.

  • Wired connection without love at first sight?

    I need to update the software for my router at home. (The router were made by Netgear).

    At the beginning of the instructions, it says this: "to avoid the problem of disconnection during the process of the firmware download wireless, NETGEAR recommends this firmware update be performed on a computer with wired connection.

    I don't know how to connect my Macbook Air to the modem with a cable, since it seems that there is no port for this.

    It seems that I might be able to buy a "Thunderbolt" adapter for $29, but that seems like a piece of expensive hardware because I need only to update this software. For $29, I could virtually buy a new router.

    Two questions:

    1. is there a cheaper way to connect my Macbook Air to the internet with a cable?

    2. can I download updated the firmware of the Netgear via the normal WiFi connection, or he'll just permanently disconnect my laptop on my home WiFi network?

    Thank you for any advice you can give me.

    (1) No, you need to this thunderbolt adapter and an ethernet cable.

    (2) what they give is the perfect Board as ethernet is more reliable than wifi. But I am not agree.  Maybe I have will burn someday, but chances are with me.  99% + chance you can do wireless.  You are offline but can reconnect automatically in most cases and may have to do a manual connect after installs the firmware.

  • Wired connection

    I just bought the Sony BDP-S370 and I tried to connect using a wired connection. I put my settings in and nothing I also did with 'AUTO' settings and nothing. I called Sony and they could not help I called comcast and none help so am hoping that some on hear can help.

    Hello 951253, the user
    Congratulations on the purchase of your new Blu Ray player. Apologies, you experience network problems. Auto is fine for Setup, but when you need solving problems, you must look at all the parties involved. Check first is the layers of the devices.

    Comcast Modem > router > wired connection to the player.
    Comcast Modem/Router > wired connection to the player

    If you can connect directly to the modem try this first
    (not all modems will allow this)
    Once you have determined which device is blocking access, check your IP address.

    You can find the network settings of > networking > Internet status > and if your ip address is valid as 192.168.x.xx then the router is good, but no communication to the Modem.

    If you have an IP address under network settings of 169.xx.xx.xx then this is a universal car fake address created with no connectivity. and it could be your cable or other issues.

  • Apple Airprint for HP Officejet 6500 has more via a wired connection to the router


    So I did a considerable amount of research in this through the internet and this forum and I still struggle to find a satisfactory solution.

    I have a HP Officejet 6500 a more connected by ethernet to my BT Homehub 3.

    It is I understand that even if there is a wired connection, as long as my iOS device (iPad 2 or iPhone 5) is connected to the same router, I should still be able to see this Officejet thanks to ease of airprint.

    Unfortunately, this is not the case. I get the message "No Airprint Printers Found" on both devices. The only way I managed to get my Mac Pro (Mavericks) to connect has been add to mannualy by using the IP address of the printer.

    Can anyone provide guidance on what I might hurt? Certainly, the printer must connect internet I can print from my iOS devices using HP ePrint app for iOS.

    Some might say, well, what's the problem, just use the HP application, but is not the point. I think that if something has been set up to make things easier, then use it. I chose this printer specifically for this feature is a bit frustrating for her so difficult to get the desired results.

    Hope it is something simple and anyone can help you.

    Thank you


    Following this request and reading the many more similar questions, I think I may have solved this.

    I'm not 100% sure but I read a few threads suggests that there are issues around BT Homehub 3 and Hello so this can be a problem.

    I tried the following in the past two days...

    (1) completely don't reset my router (wiped all settings and started)-no luck!

    (2) I tried changing to WPA2 to just WPA security - no luck!

    (3) tried to convey the Hello to the printer ports - no luck!

    (4) turn off the router, printer and all the devices iOS then fed back router, printer, then iOS devices - printer appears on iOS devices, but when printing was selected iOS device returned on several occasions not connected printer error.

    Finally, what seems to have made (at least for now) has been...

    (1) disconnected the Officejet ethernet and set up as wireless.

    (2) off voltage router, printer and all iOS devices then propelled upward in the order listed previously.

    (3) so far, I tried to print a mail and a web page of my iOS devices, and both have been successful.

    By the way I've been struggling also to airplay from my iPhone / iPad until I started messing around with the settings above, and now this question also seems to be resolved.

    Due to the variety of combinations (different printers, routers, etc.) people will have, it seems to be quite difficult to find a solution that solves a single problem but I hope some of my experiences and findings could help others in some way.

  • I am unable to connect to the Linksys WRT54G Router with wired connection to Office XP.

    My two laptops (XP and a Win7) will be connected to the router wireless and wired (ethernet). When it is plugged directly into the DSL modem, the Office connects and works very well. This problem started when I had to replace the DSL modem.

    I inherited this problem for my elderly mother... and it all started because they gave me the router password wrong, who now works (router has been reset) on two laptops, but when connected, the Office doesn't even show a light of connection on the router except during startup. I no longer get a window of logon passwork for the router, and I am unable to connect/ping the router in the office. (

    I would like to clarify a few things.

    1. two laptops work fine with cable connections and wireless through the WRT54G.

    2 desktop PC, which has only a wired connection, does not connect successfully.

    3. the symptoms of the failure of the desktop connection to are that the link on the router at the start light flashes during initialization of the PC but then will Dim.

    4. when the desktop PC trying to connect to the internet, it fails.

    5 when the desktop PC try to connect to the administration WRT54g page it fails.

    6. when the desktop computer try PIING the router at IP address it fails.

    These points are correct?

    Assuming this is correct, open a command prompt and type


    The output of the command should provide some information about the current state of the network connection.

    It would be useful that you posted this here release.

    The absence of a link light can be your main symptom and may be due to several reasons. He probably has an associate status "media disconnected" in IPCONFIG for the network connection.

    This could be caused by a bad network cable or a network connection disabled in the properties of the network on the PC. Small jets knowing the ot IPCONFIG output is would help more.

    Post this info if you can.

    Good luck

  • Compaq Presario 5400US - need network drivers for XP Home Edition. Wired connection.

    It woun't connect to internet using a good modem and cable (other PC connect successfully using this same equipment). When I type IPCONFIG, I get 2 results, one for Local Area Connection2 for LAC3. Two of them have 169.254.xxx.xxx IP addresses. Both Suffixes DNS blank and empty default gateways.

    When I go into network connections, the LAC2 says "Limited or no connectivity", but it lists a Linksys LNE 100TX Fast Ethernet Adapter. Linksys? I don't have any Linksys product. LAC3 says 'Connected' with the help of a WAN network driver. However, in the Notification area network connections has the same yellow triangle as LAC2. When I right click the icon in the Notification area and select "Repair" I always get the following ".." following action cannot be completed: renewing your IP address.

    If I right click LAC3 (the one that says 'Connected'), click Properties, click TCP. IP and select Properties, it is set to get an IP address and an address of DNS server automatically. It is also the same for LAC2.

    Client DHCP, DNS Client and call the CPP are started.

    I tried ipconfig/release, ipconfig/registerdns, ipconfig/flushdns, netsh winsock reset. When I run it ipconfig / renew I get messages (after he is sitting there for 2 minutes)
    An error occurred during renewal of the Local 2 network connection interface: unable to contact your DHCP server. Request timed out...
    An error occurred during renewal of the Local 2 network connection interface: unable to contact your DHCP server. Request timed out...

    A run chkdsk /r have run the command netsh int ip reset reset.log.

    So, I went 2 network cards, restarted in the device and removed Manager and let Windows reinstall. Windows creates a new connection to the Local network (LAC4, 2 and 3 are gone). It only reads limited connectivity or none and is using Linksys LNE 100TX Fast Ethernet Adapter, like the previous LAC2. The previous LAC3, who uses the network never got WAN driver reinstalled. I don't understand.

    Since an adapter Linksys on a wired connection seemed odd I have tried to find what should be the correct network driver.

    I google "Compaq Presario 5400US" "driver ethernet" OR "network driver" and was taken to a page of drivers HP, which I think makes sense since HP now owns Compaq
    This page has nothing listed for network or chipset cards.  This, of course, has no meaning for me.

    Can anyone help?

    Select this version from the drop-down list on the link that I posted above.

    Depending on the size of file, it does not resemble an auto install file. Accept the agreement and unzip the file into a folder.

    So, download it to a folder and go to Device Manager.

    Click the network card in need of drivers, and then select manual search for drivers. Navigate to the folder where you extracted the drivers and the driver should install.

  • Low-speed Internet with wired connection to E4200

    I have a HP Pavilion p6347c AMD Athlon II X 4 630 2.80 GHz, 64 Bit, Windows 7 SP1 WITH 16 GB of Ram, using Comcast high speed Internet.

    It works very well and I had no problem with my Pavilion until I replaced my old router G with a LinkSys E4200 (state-of-the-art, the top page of the router line N).  All the features work well, except that when I use Firefox 7.0 or Internet Explorer 9.0, the connection time is very very very slow when my computer is connected to my router with an Ethernet cable.  The problem disappears when I log - in using the same Ethernet cable - directly into the modem high speed; Then, the loading speeds are fast as lightning.  When I return to the router via a wired connection, even - page very very very slow post.

    I've already spent about 8 sessions with LinkSys on the phone and chat, and it turns out that the router is not the problem (according to LinkSys).  They advised that I need to contact the manufacturer of the computer, or people who can respond to Windows 7 support issues.  Someone at - it ideas?  Maybe something I can change in the settings of the firewall, network, computer security options settings?

    I connected my HP laptop running WINDOWS VISTA on the same Ethernet cable and disabled the wireless.  The speed of the wired connection is quick as a Flash - no problem at all.

    Then why my desktop Windows 7 SP1 computer not offer me the same speed?  Whenever I need to do important online work, I have to unplug my Ethernet cable from the router and plug directly on the modem to get faster speeds.  I then reconnect to the router once completed, so that users without wire and devices on my network work.  It's very frustrating.

    Help!  I am at a loss to understand why this computer has not faster to the Internet when wired to the router.  Is - this Windows 7?  There are some options that I need to change?  Someone at - he heard talk about this and you offer solutions?  Appreciate any assistance.  Thank you.  / Jacques novel /- [email protected]

    P.S. Customer LinkSys was no contribution to this issue.  I hope that some tech "warned" this reading will say AH-HAH and offer a viable solution.

    On a hunch, I selected the reset 'Factory Defaults' option in the Administration, after having updated the firmware. Something must have been damaged during the first attempt to install the router.


    To reset the default settings, you must have the original Setup disk and re-install using the same router name and the password.


    When this was done, the Ethernet connection worked perfectly.  Hope it will be useful to all having the same problem.
