Wireless printer support

Foreveryours 9,236 2,201 January 7, 2016 at 05:29 PM
I have an HP CP1525nw that has been working great for last 4-5 years, updated to W10 couple of months ago. Today I got Charter internet, replacing U-Verse with new router (Netgear R6250). Problem is now I can't find the printer in the network. I tried the WPS, manually setting the IP address on the printer, and connecting via USB, all fail to connect. HP install software fails to even start.

What am I missing?

You might want to try a wired connection even temporarily (based on the model # i think you have Ethernet on the printer). Static IP's or DHCP reservation are always a good idea to keep network printers happy.

In the printer properties under ports there should be an entry defined with the printer's IP address, update it if necessary. Also possible a firewall / network type setting (public / home) or security software could be causing problems.

Verify wifi is treated as a "home network" not public. A new router can mess with this.

Strangely, it never prompted me the first time I connected. I created two SSIDs but didn't specify home or public. I can't seem to find the setting for that on W10.

I give up, maybe the wireless adapter on the printer stopped working? I will just keep an ethernet plugged in.

Yeah, tried it but the software won't run with W10 for some reason. I just ordered some 12 ft ethernet cables from Amazon. It's not that big deal, it's the fact I can't figure out exactly what the issue is that's bothersome.

OTOH, I'm now getting 60+Mbps with Charter [charter.com] for $30/mo. after paying AT&T $36/mo. for 24Mbps for years woot
