And ask how to do this. Many work machines block this or that. Only the work IT person can get this answered quickly. Could be a firewall setting or something else.
1. Printer:HP Officejet 6600
2. OS: Windows 7
3. Error: Cannot find printer on wireless network *name*
4. What did I do? Just installed the printer software from HP website.
I got the HP Officejet 6600 and successfully connected it to the network at home. I managed to connect the home desktop (Windows 7), a laptop (Windows 7) and a Macbook Pro. These are all the personal ones.
However, when I tried to install the the HP Officejet 6600 on the work laptop, the installation wasn't able to find the printer on the home network when doing it wirelessly. I managed to install it the USB cable but that was about it.
Also, when trying to install it wirelessly, it found our home network, couldn't find the printer so it prompted me to type in the IP address for the printer, which I did, however, it still wasn't able to find it. The work laptop is connected to the home wireless in the network connections and the American Express server.
Is there a way to get around this issue so I can connect the laptop to the printer wirelessly as it would make life a LOT easier. Any suggestions or tips would be greatly appreciated.
