Printer Deskjet HP 2540: network name

I was able to print wireless until I had to change the name of the network. Now I can't print because the printer retains the old name of network. How can I change this? I tried everything I can think of, including wireless without router and myself continue getting error - printing. Help!

  • HP Deskjet 2050 print in a wireless network?

    Hello world!

    I watched this videoand follow these steps, but it seemed impossible to print my printer wifi, then what should I need to print in my network.

    Also, I have 2 desktop computers (1 router to connect to the internet and 1 printer, use wifi) and 1 laptop (wifi use).

    1. Office has the modem, Windows 7 64 bit.
    2. Office printer, use Windows XP SP3.
    3. Laptop using Windows 7 64 bit.

    If it is possible to print in a wireless network of my HP Deskjet 2050, I can print from my laptop without turning on 1 desktop printer or not, just that the printer lights? And what I have to install each office and cell phones, drivers of the printer? 

    I mean just 1 desktop computer a Modem lights and I'm working on laptop.

    Thank you for reading and re-reading!

    Well, you can turn the impression on the host PC sharing, then load the drivers on the other PC and print via the host PC.

    The host computer must be turned on (not sleeping).  Also, this is going to share the printer, but cannot share the analysis.  If the host computer has to one different operating system than the others, it can be difficult and is not all that reliable.

    It's as good as it gets with a USB printer only.  If you want more you have to get a wireless printer.

    Hi @Mina85 and welcome to the Forums of HP!

    I see that you are having connectivity problems.  I would try to help!

    I recommend you to perform a power reset.   Unplug the power cord from the printer and the power outlet, then wait 60 seconds. After 60 seconds, plug back in the printer. Make sure that you connect the printer directly to a wall outlet. Make sure to bypass any surge protector or power bar.

    I also suggest this document on Center of troubleshooting wireless printing.

    Good luck and please let me know the results of your troubleshooting operations. Thanks for posting on the HP Forums!

  • 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.

  • How can I get my USB to the printer wirelessly to a network without a computer?

    If you have a USB port to the wireless printer and no computer to use software to do this and do not want to use the WPS option (or it is not available), then the following method can help.

    That doesn't get a key USB Wi - Fi, as the printer Deskjet 3512, on the wireless network when there is no computer available.  However, this can work from a computer as well if you prefer not to install the software.

    For these steps, I'll use an iPad.

    1. the printer will broadcast a wireless network of its own.  This has usually HP Setup and model of the printer in the name of the network.  Connect a wireless device to the network.

    2. Once connected, open the browser.  In my case, it's Safari.

    3. Enter the address in the address and press go to access the status of the printer page.

    4. once there, there will be several tabs at the top.  Select network.

    5. Select the wireless configuration wizard.

    6 Select next at the bottom.

    7. it looks for available networks.  Select your network from the list and click Next.  The network should be highlighted, select it again if it's not.

    8. you will be asked the password.  Enter the password and click Next at the bottom.

    9. the printer should now be connected to the network.  It may take a few minutes to share.  Reconnect the computer or mobile device to your regular network and it should be good to go.

    I know that there are some users who have only a Tablet and a USB port to the printer wireless with no other way to get it on a network.

    I hope this information is useful to someone.

  • Printer cannot find the network

    I just bought a new printer HP Photosmart 5514.  I tried to connect to my wireless router, but he can't find it. I checked to make sure that the router was conducted, it was broadcasting the SSID and I have was close enough to receive the signal. Everything was ok, but it has always failed. I still don't see it.  (On a side note, 2 laptops can see the router and another 1 laptop can't see the router). I think I might be missing just a setting somewhere but can't find it.  Help, please!

    I have a Linksys WRT320n.

    Wireless broadband: 5 GHz
    Network mode: mixed
    The network name (SSID): wire78
    Channel width: Auto (20 & 40 MHz)
    Channel: Auto
    SSID Broadcast: enabled

    Security: WPA2 Personal with a password

    MAC filtering: disabled

    I found the error.  I needed to have the band Wireless 2.4 GHz.  Fixed both the problem of connectivity to the printer and the laptop that did not see the network.

    Most likely, you will need to re-run the installation of the network.

    Since you changed the encryption WPA2, the printer needs to know this!


  • How can I add a printer to my wireless network

    How can I add a printer to my wireless network


    I assume that you have a wireless printer. If so, the software is different from each manufacturer, but it is similar to this. Before starting the installation, make sure that you have a USB cable at your fingertips and you know your network name (SSID) and wireless key. Install the software and follow the prompts to set up the connection Wireless for the first time. Once it has been set up you can unplug the USB cable.

    The USB cable is not required on subsequent computers, simply install the software and follow the prompts on the screen of an additional computer (or similar wording). You may need to enter an SSID and Wi - Fi key, after which the printer must be accounted for.

  • OfficeJet 6700 cannot find the printer on the wireless network

    Printer is connected to my wireless network.

    Print diagnostic shows PASS for everything and I have ip (DHCP

    The printer is able to connect to the internet to download updates and pull content for apps (colouring etc...)

    I disabled my firewall of windows to resolve the problems, but the HP software was listed as exceptions anyway.

    Using the printer on my computer connection wizard I entered both the IP address and the host name but it is "impossible to find the printer.

    My router is a netgear WNDR3700.

    The ssid that I am connected is good.  I have a network of both comments, but it does not broadcast its ssid and I am not connected to it.

    I am getting very frustrated.  I'm tech-saavy and it should be much easier than this.

    I wonder if anyone else encountered this problem and can anyone offer suggestions?

    Thanks in advance...
