HP Officejet Pro L7580 Wireless Connection

I am trying to set up a wireless connection from my laptop to my HP Officejet Pro L7580 All in One printer. I have tried to follow instructions from the HP website, but it indicates that I must go through the printer display on the printer= Setup/Network- to turn on wireless connection. My printer does not have this as an option. How do I setup wireless connection with my HP Officejet Pro L7580 All In One Printer?

OR IF YOU WANNA USE AS WIRELESS YOU CAN USE WPUK (WIRELESS PRINTING UPGRADE KIT)

The 7680 model is the wireless connection model from HP. You would need a Print Server to make it work. You can get one on ebay, or at staples, office depot, you get the idea. If someone told you it had that capability I would at least have the conversation and maybe they can help you get the print server.

For this specific issue about installing the printer to a wireless connection. You need to install the software first as a usb connection. After the successful installation of the usb connection then you can add a device and it should work.

Step one: Gather the necessary hardware and information Follow the procedure below before obtaining your wireless network:

  1. Obtain your network SSID and WEP. To simplify this process, press the Wireless button on the all-in-one, and select Restore Network Defaults . This turns wireless off and sets the all-in-one's SSID to hpsetup .
  2. Press the Wireless button to turn wireless back on. Look for hpsetup when you select your network.
  3. Make sure that wireless is enabled on the all-in-one.
  4. Make sure that the computer that will be using the all-in-one has access to the router/access point.
You will need the following to set up the product on a wireless network:
  • A wireless 802.11 network that includes a wireless access point.
  • A desktop computer or laptop with wireless networking support or a network interface card (NIC).
  • Broadband Internet access is required for some features of the HP software to function. Cable Internet or DSL are examples of Broadband Internet access. NOTE: If you connect the unit on a wireless network that has Internet access, HP recommends that you use a wireless router (access point or base station) that uses Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP).
  • The network name, or Service Set Identifier (SSID). NOTE: The SSID is obtained from the wireless router or access point using the embedded web server on the router. See the documentation provided with the access point for more information.
  • The Wired Equivalent Privacy (WEP) key or Wi-Fi Protected Access (WPA) passphrase, if needed. CAUTION: To prevent other users from accessing your wireless network, HP strongly recommends using a password or passphrase and a unique SSID to your access point. Your access point might have been shipped with a default SSID, which can be accessed by other users using the same default SSID. For more information on how to change the SSID, see the documentation that came with your access point. NOTE: The WEP key and WPA passphrase are obtained from the wireless router or access point using the embedded web server on the router. See the documentation provided with the access point for more information.Some access points provide more than one WEP key. Use the first WEP key (index 1) when setting up the wireless network.
  • If the network is set up with an Apple AirPort base station and you are using a password instead of WEP HEX or WEP ASCII to access this network, you need to get the equivalent WEP key. See the documentation that came with the Apple AirPort base station for more information.
  • If IP address filtering is set up, verify that the unit address is listed.
  • If MAC address filtering is set up, verify that the unit address is listed. NOTE: HP cannot set up or change the SSID, WEP key or WPA passphrase. This information is required before connecting the HP All-in-One to the wireless network.
Step two: Connect to an integrated wireless WLAN 802.11 network Follow the procedure to connect the unit to the wireless infrastructure network:
  1. Insert the software CD.
  2. Click Install .
  3. Click Next on the Please Allow All HP Install Wizard Processes screen.
  4. Select Easy Install on the Choose Easy Install or Advanced Install screen.
  5. Select Through the Network on the Connection Type screen. Figure 2: Connection Type screen c01160788.jpg
  6. When it doesn’t find your device, click Next . Figure 3: Using Network Setup c01164746.jpg
  7. Plug in your device via USB (it will tell you when to disconnect later). Figure 4: Making a connection to your all-in-one c01160790.jpg
  8. Select your network from the list, and click Next . Figure 5: Wireless Network Setup c01160791.jpg
  9. Enter your WEP key (if applicable). Figure 6: Specifying your network security settings c01160792.jpg
  10. Once it has completed connecting to the network, click Next . Figure 7: Network connecting completed c01160793.jpg
  11. Disconnect the USB cable from the computer and the All-in-One . Figure 8: Disconnecting the USB cable c01160794.jpg
  12. Click Finish to complete the software installation process. Figure 9: Software installation complete c01160795.jpg

SOURCE: HP OJP L7580 and VISTA no SCANNER available

You may want to try the full install before spending more time troubleshooting. It's a 300mb download (!), but it might be worth a try.

You don't say what software you're trying to use to scan, either; you may wish to try another one. If you want to experiment, you can download a free photo editing package that won't take over all your preferences for files -- check out portableapps.com and look for GIMP.


I've got an older HP printer, a PSC 1610, and it took me something like *seven* times installing it on Vista before it worked right. It turns out there's the regular uninstall, and then there's a super uninstall, and then there's a super duper uninstall, etc -- something like seven different uninstallation procedures, which is just insane.

HP's drivers and cruddy software convinced me to never by another one. It's a shame -- the company made some laser printers 15 years ago that are still working perfectly.

SOURCE: HP printer cannot find access point and I'm not sure what to do.

You must first connect your printer to the pc using usb cable, then run installation wizard that is on the CD that came with the printer.

Wizard will guide you through the setup orcess where you will provider your routers ssid (linksys) to your printer, and your printer will use that ssid to connect to your router.

After the Wizard setup is done, it will tell you to disconnect the usb cable and only then your printer will work on wireless.

Good luck,
Milan

My hp officejet pro L7580 is connected to DOT4 port, there's a hp officejet pro L7580fax connected to USB002. I want officejet pro L7580 connected to USB002, NOT the L7580fax. My desktop is not...


To walk you through I'd need to know the OS you are running, but the generic answer is that you need to go into the print driver, and in the Printer Properties, under the ports tab , select the USB002 port rather than the DOT4 port and Apply the changes.

When I try to scan, it reads "No Scan Options".


Try scanning from the solution center. If successful, check the scan button settings if you can see applications available on the 'Destination List'. Add all the application to the right side. Close the solution center and try to scan.

My HP officejet Pro L7580 says the printhead has a problem


Re-insert the print cartridges. It is also possible that the heads are burnt. Get a new set of print heads (black/yellow) and install to the printer. If problem persists, clean the contacts on the printers. Use acetone + cotton swabs.

Wireless connection


Typically this is done using the software disk that came with the printer. The disk will help the wireless connection coordinate with the laptop and will also install the driver.

Getting error when trying to fax or scan


The L7580 is not meant to be set up as a scanning device on a network. This unit can only function properly as a USB connected device to have all the features work. Also, for the software to install with out problems, all other All in One software fro previous HP printers need to be removed. Once we did that and did clean install using USB only then did it work.
