I am using WPA Pre-Shared Key, not WEP. I did have to change my settings, so I am now broadcasting my network name. This was helpful in that my wireless network now shows up on the printer and then I manually type in only the password. I am not sure where to find the MAC filtering/how to check it.|
What's strange to me is that the printer says it's connected to my wireless network, but then the blue light continues to flash and when I check again in the wireless, it says not connected. I have had it connected a few random times though, but I"m not sure what I did different.
As I am going through the HP Software Set-up and it is not finding my device, I clicked on help and it told me:
IMPORTANT: Many wireless network-capable HP devices must be configured using a USB connection. If you wish to set up a wireless network connection, check your device documentation and, if necessary, connect your device to this computer with a USB cable now.
Is this something I might need to do? If so, my printer did not come with a USB cable. Do I just need to buy one that has usb devices on either side?
Also, is there a reason the IP address that is printed out on the network information is not being found when I put it into my browser? That seemed to work for many other people, but it just keeps searching and then says the page doesn't exist.
