hi. i have this printer connected to my linksys router and i am able to print from my fedora machine after yum install hplip.
i am trying to set this up on my wifes win-7 laptop. i go to start -> devices and printers -> add a device.
and after a few moments it finds the printer on my network (hpf732bo-hp officejet 4500 g510g-m).
i click next and i get a page saying that the device has been successfully installed but after a few minutes a pop-up comes up saying that the install failed:
wsd print device (green check mark) ready to use
wsd print device (red x) no driver found
when i try to print using notepad the new printer isnt available as an option.
when i go to the hp site to manually install the driver, it installs all the hp bloatware but at the end it tells me to connect the usb cable to finish the install. what is the way to connect this as a network (wifi) printer in windows ?
It's been a while since I installed my networked HP printer on my girlfriend's Win7 computer, but I think you need to tell the HP Driver Program you are installing a networked printer near the beginning of the process.
Lately I've only had to configure brother printers with the same result so not sure how much of this information will transfer. I configured the printer with a static IP address via the web setup page and the windows driver had the option to use a IP address vs automatically find. It is also possible to configure a network printer using IPP in windows. Since the device is already working no need to connect it via USB. The brother software also had a similar option.
