Is it possible to connect the HP Photosmart C4780 Wireless printer without USB cable?


My family and I recently moved and while moving, something inevitably get lost or left for account.  I am fighting to get this printer and will so I don't have to bother people at the front desk at school to print my documents for me.  I have lost/misplaced both the HP Photosmart C4780 printer software disk and the USB cable.  I have no idea where these things are and have not found them within two months, we've been in the new House.

I solved the issue of the loss of the installation disk by downloading it from the HP site.  My problem is now getting beyond the USB connection and get the currently installed software.  Because I run on a MacBook Pro, it always tells me that I need the USB key to continue the installation.  I'm on a Verizon Wireless router, and I even tried to find the printer on my wireless network with no luck.

Help, please!

Thank you.

It's the type of cable you will need (ignore the color of the cable, the ends are the important part).

Have a new router is not a problem, but remember the SSID and password wireless exactly, otherwise it will not work (if you decide to try Method 1). It's a bit like "trick" your printer into thinking that your new router is your old a long enough to configure the network settings for the new (desired).

  • Office Jet 4620: Connect wireless printer without USB cable

    Thanks for any help.


    HP Auto Wireless automatically sets the printer without connecting it to a USB port, only if your computer is also connected wireless to the network. If your PC does not have wireless connectivity USB cable would be necessary, except if your router supports WPS.

    If your PC is connected wireless to the router, restore the pritner as follows:

    1. Click on the WiFi the printer button and select restore network settings, confirm and invites.
    2. Click on the Setup (wrench) and select Tools, then restore the default settings and confirm any command prompt.
    3. Turn the printer off and turn it back on
    4. Open the HP Officejet 4620 software and follow the instructions to connect a wireless printer.

    Another option would be the WPS Pin Code or button WPS, if your router supports supported such a, tap the icon on the printer wireless and select WPS or Wireless protected Setup, follow the steps on the screen, press the button of your router or a PIN code, see the documentation for your router to check the capabilities of WPS.

    If none apply to your PC printer or yout, use a wireless computer connected or get a USB cable for the installation of hht, so a cable was supplied with the printer.

    Hello @GatZza,

    Welcome to the HP support forums.

    I appreciate that you try to put your Deskjet 3515 on your network wireless without router.

    I would like to help.

    I got the following information from the Printers manual.

    To get started with Direct wireless printing

    1. to use live wireless, you must turn on Direct Wireless Control Panel and get the wireless
    Direct name and password if you have directly on wireless security:
    a. on the home screen, tap on wireless and then select settings.
    b. If the display shows that the wireless is turned off, select live wireless, then on (No.
    Security) or we (with security).

    NOTE: HP recommends that you turn on Direct wireless security. If you turn on safety, only
    users with the password will be able to connect wirelessly to the printer. If you disable security,
    anyone with a Wi - Fi device to the printer WiFi range will be able to connect to the printer.

    c. Select the display name to display the name Direct wireless.
    d. Select Show password to display the password Direct wireless if you live wireless
    Security on.

    2 from your computer wireless or mobile device, Wireless Tower, find and connect wirelessly
    Direct name, for example: 3510 HP-Print-XX-Deskjet series. If you have Direct wireless security, enter
    Direct wireless password when you are prompted. Then print as you normally would from your computer or mobile

    Open the integrated via Direct wireless Web server

    1. from the home screen, press the wireless button, and then select settings.

    2. If the display shows that the wireless is turned off, select live wireless, then on (No Security) or
    On (with security).

    3. from your computer wireless turn wireless on, to search and connect on behalf of live wireless, for
    example: series HP-Print-XX-Deskjet 3510. If you have Direct wireless security, enter in the wireless
    Direct password when you are prompted.

    4. in a browser supported on your computer, type the following address:

    When you reach the EWS printers, you should see an option to run the Wireless Setup Wizard.

    Run the wizard, and then follow the prompts.

  • Photosmart C4780 wireless set in place the question

    Hi all

    I tried to implement the Photosmart C4780 to print on a wireless network. I have a pc running Windows XP SP2. When I go through the process of configuring the network device it seems to pass a number of steps with no problems before you throw the following: "the printer attempted to join the network but does not receive any data. This may be caused by MAC address, filtering... "I checked the router settings, router is a Netgear Wgr614 and MAC address filtering is turned off.  I have a number of other devices connected to the network and all have very well connected without tinkering with the configuration of the router.
    When I run a wireless network test, she spends the first 5 criteria (Wirless on, working wireless, found network name, security, printer settings in line with the wireless router settings) before failing on the 6 criteria (filtering on).
    Any ideas...

    Have completed using the USB connection and which works very well but I would like to run without thread if poss.

    Thank you for your help. Neil

    It's fixed now, everything worked Ok once I changed the WEP authentication type router "Shared key" setting to "open system".

  • Using pictures of Yosemite 1.0.1 I created a 400 photo album. I custom sort them. When I copy a USB to share with friends my custom sort is lost. Is it possible to maintain the current order of photo on a USB?

    Using pictures of Yosemite 1.0.1 I created a 400 photo album. I custom sort them. When I copy a USB to share with friends my custom sort is lost. Is it possible to maintain the current order of photo on a USB?

    Of course, not as the sorting, the viewer sees is defined by them not by you - given the same USB you can use the finder to display in alphabetical order, last updated order etc. size - files have no command - the viewer defines the order

    You can select Photos and export using a file for sequential access to export name so if the Viewer uses an alpha sort they correspond to your order desired - you can facilitate this, but they must define their queue viewer correctly for them to see it as you wish

    Hi Charlay,

    Yes, you can download Lightroom on your Mac computer from this link: Install Photoshop Lightroom

    And you can then activate Adobe programs on two machines, you will be able to activate it without having to buy it again.

  • I've updated the Mac driver for the 8600 and direct wireless printing is no longer works. V5.9.1

    I've updated the Mac driver for the 8600 and direct wireless printing is no longer works. The HP utility is v5.9.1, Mac OS x 10.7. I did the software update and a new driver HP was part of the package. HP ePrint still works, and print tests are okay for General network settings are intact. None of the applications that use the print dialogue box standard and local networking make it through the print queue. Any tips? Any way to roll back a driver version? Or quickly get the next revision and hope printing works again? Thank you.

    Update: OSX-specific Version is 10.7.5, model of the printer is HP OfficeJet 8600. See you soon.


    Try to reboot the router and check if that can help you.

    After connecting the back of the router, wait 30-60 seconds and restart the printer and Mac.

    If it persists, try resettign the system as follows:

    * Be aware that reset the printer system will eliminate any existing queue and reset all custom settings driver.

    Click on the Apple menu and then click on System Preferences.
    Select Print & Scan.
    Right click (or Ctrl + click) your product with the Printers list in the left panel and then click on reset printing system.
    Click OK to confirm the reset.
    Type your user name and password.
    Click OK. The printing system resets.

    Now reconfigure the device by following the HP (under Utilities Applications\hewlett-Packard\Device) installation wizard.

    I have c4780 wireless printer.  It will print fine using the usb connection, but has never printed wireless.

    PC operating system is Windows Vista.  Wireless router is the linksys WRT54G.  The printer does not see the access point.  The security mode of the router is WPA Personal.  I have a unique SSID.  ISP is Timewarner Roadrunner.

    How do I get this to a wireless connection?

    Try this firmware update.

    In addition, sweat you are broadcasting your SSID and not using MAC filtering.

    I n think that it of necessary to have admin rights.
    You can use an external USB keyboard with no problems.
    But if you want to use the keyboard USB under Win NT USB emulation (or something like that) option in the BIOS must be enabled.

  • Problem with the HP Photosmart C4780 connection after moving

  • Possible to connect the BDP-S560 to NSZ - GS7?

    I'm trying to connect the Bluray Sony BDP-S560 drive to my Inbox of Sony NSZ - GS7 via HDMI.  I tried a variety of cables and a variety of resolutions on the Blu - Ray player without success.

    Image HDMI does not work or it works intermittently.  When it does not work, I see a flashing green screen.  When it works, it's usually when the Bluray player is set to 720 p and NSZ - GS7 is set to Auto on the resolution.

    As I said, I have used generic HDMI cables, like Monster HDMI cables brand and may not properly configure the zone to work well with the Blu - Ray player.

    I am trying to accomplish the impossible due to incompatibility between the NSZ - GS7 and Blu - Ray players or the NSZ - GS7 defective?

    Hello Jason,

    If the HDMI device image does not appear, change [HDMI] (American English) / [setting HDMI] (British English) - [Advanced video setting] in the camera settings.
    Also, make sure that the Quick Start menu option is set on IT.
    If there is still no image, stop and then TURN the Streaming Web Player and Blu - ray Disc player.

  • Cannot connect my HP Photosmart c309g-m printer to my Linksys WRT54GC router. "No filtering = FAIL.

    I have problems connecting my HP Photosmart c309g-m to my Linksys WRT54GC router.  The diagnostics report says "no filtering = FAIL" in all my attempts.

    First I had implemented security wireless to the router with a personal WPA2 password.

    Because this does not work, I spent my WPA security, given that the diagnostic report suggests that this is what he actually uses for encryption. This no longer works.

    I double and triple checked the MAC address of the printer in my MAC filtering wireless settings. He was right. However, he didn't always connect.

    Reluctantly, I turned MAC filtering. However, the printer still wouldn't connect.

    Now, I'm out of options. All possible ideas for this problem?

    Here are a few ideas:

    1. check that the SSID is being broadcast.

    2. make sure that DHCP is active.

    3. don't use MAC filtering (it is not a security measure, in any case).

    4 change the channel from router to 11.
