Wireless with a router (infrastructure network)

The HP Photosmart Software CD and included USB setup cable provide an easy way to connect the HP Photosmart to your 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.

Wireless without a router (ad hoc connection)

Use this section if you want to connect the HP Photosmart to a wireless-capable computer without using a wireless router or access point.
HP Photosmart C4795 User Manual 11

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

  • Turn on the wireless radio for the HP Photosmart 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 Photosmart.

OR

  • 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 C4795 User Manual 13 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.

Other computers, which are referred to as the clients, have access only to the print features. HP recommends up to 5 computers for the best performance. You must perform other functions from the host computer or from the control panel on the HP Photosmart.

To connect the product with the USB cable

  • Refer to the setup instructions that came with your product for information on connecting to a computer with a USB cable.

Information on paper

The HP Photosmart is designed to work well with most paper types. Test a variety of paper types before buying a large quantity. Find a paper type that works well and is easy to purchase. HP papers are designed for the best quality results. In addition, follow these tips:

  • Do not use paper that is too thin, that has a slick texture, or that stretches easily. It can feed incorrectly through the paper path, causing paper jams.
  • Store photo media in its original packaging inside a resealable plastic bag on a flat surface in a cool, dry place. When you are ready to print, remove only the paper you plan to use immediately. When you have finished printing, return any unused photo paper to the plastic bag.
  • Do not leave unused photo paper in the paper tray. The paper might start to curl, which might reduce the quality of your printouts. Curled paper can also cause paper jams.
  • Always hold photo paper by the edges. Fingerprints on photo paper can reduce print quality.
  • Do not use paper that is heavily textured. It can cause graphics or text to print improperly.
  • Do not combine different paper types and paper sizes in the paper tray; the entire stack of paper in the paper tray must be the same size and type.
  • For best results, do not allow printed photos to stack up in the paper tray.
  • Store printed photos under glass or in a storage book to prevent bleeding over time from high humidity.
