Connection information

The HP All-in-One comes equipped with a USB port so you can connect directly to a computer using a USB cable. You can also connect the HP All-in-One to a wireless network or use printer sharing to share the device over an existing home network.

This section contains the following topics:

  1. Supported connection types
  1. USB connection
  1. Network connection

Supported connection types

The following table contains a list of supported connection types.

USB connection

The HP All-in-One supports a rear USB 2.0 High Speed port for connection to a computer.

If you use a USB cable to connect the HP All-in-One to a computer on a network, you can set up printer sharing on your computer. This enables other computers on the network to print to the HP All-in-One, using your computer as the host.

The host computer (your computer, connected directly to the HP All-in-One by a USB cable) has full software functionality. Other computers, which are referred to as the clients, have access only to the print features. HP recommends upto 5 computers for the best performance. You must perform other functions from the host computer or from the control panel on the HP All-in-One.

To connect the product with the USB cable

  1. Refer to the Start Here guide that came with your product for information on connecting to a computer with a USB cable.

HP Photosmart c4580 User Manual 57 NOTE: Do not connect the USB cable to the product until you are prompted to do so.

To enable printer sharing on a Windows computer

  1. Refer to the user guide that came with your computer or see the Windows onscreen Help.

Network connection

This section describes how to connect the HP All-in-One to a network and how to view and manage network settings.

Set up the HP All-in-One on an integrated wireless (WLAN 802.11) network

The HP All-in-One uses an internal networking component that supports a wireless network.

For optimal performance and security in your wireless network, HP recommends you use a wireless router or access point (802.11) to connect the product and the other network elements. When network elements are connected through a wireless router or access point, this is called an infrastructure network.

12 Connection information

HP Photosmart c4580 User Manual 59

The advantages of a wireless infrastructure network as compared to an ad hoc network include:

  1. Advanced network security
  1. Enhanced reliability
  1. Network flexibility
  1. Better performance
  1. Shared Broadband Internet access
Connectioninformation

What you need for an integrated wireless WLAN 802.11 network

To connect the HP All-in-One to an integrated wireless WLAN 802.11 network, you will need the following:

  1. A wireless 802.11 network that includes a wireless router or access point.
  1. A desktop computer or laptop with either wireless networking support, or a network interface card (NIC). The computer must be connected to the wireless network that you intend to install the HP All-in-One on.
  1. Broadband Internet access (recommended) such as cable or DSL.

If you connect the HP All-in-One 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).

  1. Network name (SSID).
  1. WEP key or WPA Passphrase (if needed).
  1. A standard USB cable to connect temporarily for transferring wireless settings.

Connect to an integrated wireless WLAN 802.11 network

The HP Photosmart Software CD and included USB setup cable provide an easy way to connect the HP All-in-One to your wireless network.

Network connection 13

Chapter 4

Connectioninformation

CAUTION: To prevent other users from accessing your wireless network, HP strongly recommends using a password or passphrase (WPA or WEP security) and a unique network name (SSID) for your wireless router. Your wireless router might have been shipped with a default network name, which is typically the manufacturer name. If you use the default network name, your network can be easily accessed by other users using the same default network name (SSID). It also means that the HP All-in-One might accidently connect to a different wireless network in your area which uses the same network name. If this happens you will not be able to access the HP All-in-One. For more information on how to change the network name, see the documentation that came with your wireless router.

To connect the product

  1. Insert the product Software CD in the computer CD-ROM drive.
  1. Follow the instructions on the screen.

When you are prompted, connect the product to the computer using the USB setup cable included in the box. The product will attempt to connect to the network. If the connection fails, follow the prompts to correct the problem, and then try again.

  1. When the setup is finished, you will be prompted to disconnect the USB cable and test the wireless network connection. Once the product connects successfully to the network, install the software on each computer that will use the product over the network.

Wireless ad hoc network setup

Use this section if you want to connect the HP All-in-One to a wireless-capable computer without using a wireless router or access point.
HP Photosmart c4580 User Manual 63

There are two methods you may use to connect the HP All-in-One to your computer using an ad hoc wireless network connection. Once connected, you can install the HP All-in-One software.

  1. Turn on the wireless radio for the HP All-in-One and the wireless radio on your computer. On your computer, connect to the network name (SSID) hpsetup, which is the default ad hoc network created by the HP All-in-One.

  1. Use an ad hoc network profile on your computer to connect to the product. If your computer is not currently configured with an ad hoc network profile, consult the Help file for your computer Operating System for the proper method to create an ad hoc profile on your computer. Once the ad hoc network profile has been created, insert the installation CD that came with the product and install the software. Connect to the ad hoc network profile you created on your computer.

HP Photosmart c4580 User Manual 57 NOTE: An ad hoc connection can be used if you do not have a wireless router or access point but do have a wireless radio on your computer. However, an ad hoc connection may result in a lower level of network security and possibly reduced performance when compared to an infrastructure network connection using a wireless router or access point.

Connectioninformation

What you need for an ad hoc network

To connect the HP All-in-One to a Windows computer with an ad hoc connection, the computer must have a wireless network adapter and an ad hoc profile.

Create a network profile for a Windows Vista or Windows XP computer

Prepare your computer for an ad hoc connection by creating a network profile.

To create a network profile

HP Photosmart c4580 User Manual 67 NOTE: The product comes configured with a network profile with hpsetup as the network name (SSID). However, for security and privacy HP recommends you create a new network profile on your computer as described here.

  1. In the Control Panel, double-click Network Connections.
  1. On the Network Connections window, right-click the Wireless Network Connection. If you see Enable on the pop-up menu, select it. Otherwise, if you see Disable on the menu, the wireless connection is already enabled.

Connect to additional computers on a network

You can connect the HP All-in-One to more than one computer on a small network of computers. If the HP All-in-One is already connected to a computer on a network, for each additional computer you must install the HP All-in-One software. During installation of a wireless connection, the software will discover the SSID (network name) of the existing network. Once you have set up the HP All- in-One on the network you will not need to configure it again when you add additional computers.

To install the Windows HP All-in-One software on additional networked computers
  1. Quit all applications running on your computer, including any virus detection software.
  1. Insert the Windows CD that came with the HP All-in-One into the CD-ROM drive on your computer and follow the onscreen instructions.
