Installing the Printer in a Wireless Network (Ad Hoc Mode)


Install the printer in a wireless network without using an access point in Windows. This is called a peer-to-peer or ad hoc network.
http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf-java/doc/images/c00718782.gif





NOTE:

An ad hoc connection is available if you do not have a wireless router or access point. However, it provides little flexibility, a low level of network security, and slower network performance than with a wireless router or access point.

In order to connect the HP All-in-One to your computer (ad hoc), you need to create an ad hoc network profile on your computer. This includes choosing a network name (SSID) and WEP security (optional but recommended) for your ad hoc network.


Installing the printer in an ad hoc network in Windows
Step one: Close all applications

Close all of the applications that are running on the computer.


Step two: Turn off the Windows firewalls


  1. Click Start .

  2. Click Settings .

  3. Click Control Panel .

  4. Double-click Network Connections .

  5. Click Change settings of this connection .

  6. Click the Advanced tab.

  7. Clear the firewall protection check box and then click OK


Step three: Disable the Internet connection
To protect the computer from virus infection, disable the Internet connection.

  • If the computer is connected to the Internet using cable or DSL, disconnect the Ethernet cable from the back of the computer.

  • If the computer is connected to the Internet using dial-up, disconnect the phone cord.


Step four: Disable all LAN connections (including Ethernet)
Disable all LAN connections other than the wireless connection and disable all IEEE 1394 connections to the Ethernet, including Firewire, i.LINK, or Lynx.

  1. Click Start .

  2. Click Settings .

  3. Click Control Panel .

  4. Double-click Network Connections .

  5. Right-click Local Area Connection and then click Disable .







NOTE:

If Enable displays in the pop-up menu, the Local Area Connection is already disabled.


  1. Repeat step 5 for each Local Area Connection that is listed.


Step five: Create a network profile





NOTE:

The unit comes configured with a network profile with hpsetup as the SSID. However, for security and privacy, HP recommends creating a new network profile.




  1. Click Start .

  2. Click Settings .

  3. Click Control Panel .

  4. Double-click Network Connections .

  5. Right-click Wireless Network Connection and then select Enable .




    NOTE:

    If Disable displays in the menu, the Wireless Network Connection is already enabled.

  6. Right-click the Wireless Network Connection icon and then click Properties .

  7. Click the Wireless Networks tab.

  8. Select the Use Windows to configure my wireless network settings check box.

  9. Click Add , and then do the following:

    1. In the Network name (SSID) text box, type a name for the network. For example, type Mynetwork .




      NOTE:

      Notice that the M in Mynetwork is uppercase (capital), and the rest of the letters are lowercase (small). This is important to remember in case you need to enter the SSID at a later time on the Wireless Setup Wizard.

    2. If there is a Network Authentication list, select Open . Otherwise, continue to the next step.

    3. In the Data encryption list, select WEP .




      NOTE:

      It is possible to create a network that does not use a WEP key. However, HP recommends using a WEP key to help secure the network.

    4. Verify that The key is provided for me automatically check box is not selected. If it is selected, select the check box to clear it.

    5. In the Network key text box, type a WEP key that has exactly 5 or exactly 13 alphanumeric (ASCII) characters.




      NOTE:

      For example, if you enter 5 characters, you might enter ABCDE or 12345 . Or, if you enter 13 characters, you might enter ABCDEF1234567 . ABCDE , 12345 , and ABCDEF1234567 are examples only. Select a combination of your choice.Alternatively, you can use hexadecimal (HEX) characters for the WEP key. A HEX WEP key must be 10 characters for 40-bit encryption, or 26 characters for 128-bit encryption.

    6. In the Confirm network key text box, type the same WEP key that you typed in the previous step.

    7. Write down the WEP key exactly as you typed it, including uppercase and lowercase letters.




      NOTE:

      You must remember the exact uppercase (capital) and lowercase (small) letters. If you enter your WEP key incorrectly on the unit, the wireless connection will fail.

    8. Select the This is a computer-to-computer (ad hoc) network; wireless access points are not used check box.

    9. Click OK to close the Wireless Network Properties window, and then click OK again.

    10. Click OK to close the Wireless Network Properties Connection window.


Step six: Connect the unit to the wireless ad hoc network
You can use the Wireless Setup Wizard to connect the HP All-in-One to a wireless ad hoc network.

To connect to a wireless ad hoc network

  1. Touch Setup on the display.

  2. Touch Network .




    NOTE:

    If the menu option you want is not visible on the screen, touch the arrows http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf-java/doc/images/c01131619.jpghttp://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf-java/doc/images/c01131620.jpgto scroll through all the menu options.

  3. Touch Wireless Setup Wizard .

This runs the Wireless Setup Wizard . The setup wizard searches for available networks and then displays a list of detected network names (SSIDs). The infrastructure networks appear first in the list, followed by available ad hoc networks.



The networks with the strongest signal appear first; the weakest appear last.


  1. On the display, look for the network name you created on your computer. For example, Mynetwork.

  2. Touch the network name.

If you found your network name and selected it, go on to step 6.

If you do not see your network name in the list

    1. Touch Enter a New Network Name (SSID) .

The visual keyboard appears.

    1. Enter the SSID. Touch the appropriate letters or numbers on the visual keyboard.




      NOTE:

      You must enter the exact uppercase (capital) and lowercase (small) letters. Otherwise, the wireless connection will fail.

    2. When you have finished entering the new SSID, touch Done on the visual keyboard, and then touch OK .




      NOTE:

      If the HP All-in-One is unable to discover the network based on the network name you entered, you will see the following prompts. You may want to move the HP All-in-One closer to the computer and try running the Wireless Setup Wizard again to automatically discover the network.

    3. Touch Ad Hoc .

    4. Touch Yes, my network uses WEP encryption . The visual keyboard displays. If you do not want to use WEP encryption, touch No, my network does not use encryption . Go to step 7.

  1. If prompted, enter your WEP key as follows. Otherwise go to step 7.

    1. Touch the appropriate letters or numbers on the visual keyboard.




      NOTE:

      You must enter the exact uppercase (capital) and lowercase (small) letters. Otherwise, the wireless connection will fail.

    2. When you are finished entering the WEP key, touch Done on the visual keyboard.

  1. Touch OK again to confirm.

The HP All-in-One will attempt to connect to the SSID. If a message says you entered an invalid WEP key, check the key you wrote down for your new network. Follow the prompts to correct the WEP key, and then try again.


  1. When the HP All-in-One connects successfully to the network, go to your computer to install the software.

  2. After installing and testing the HP All-in-One, restore the firewall and then reconnect the Internet connection.

Now you should be able to connect Wirelessly
