I bought an HP printer that does all four of the typical printer functions but can not get it to connect to my lap tops. The instructions with it called for my printer to connect to my local wife network then to my printer from the network. In the set up instructions it referred to a button on my router. My router is provided by my cable company, now frontier. There is no button on the router so I could not follow the instructions. Visited the printer seller and they sold me a cable to directly connect my laptop to the printer. Despite using that I get no connection between these devices. Help?

Have you tried this yet?

What is the model # of the printer. Always give the model #, version, etc of what you are posting about. It can shorten the trouble shooting process considerably sometimes.

That's what we use. We have a 25 Ft USB cable and drag it over to our Macbook when we want to print. No muss, no fuss.

In your printer menu system there is a place to add an IP address. This is the method required for connecting to your WiFi system.

Post the HP model # and we will walk you through it.

Unless you got the wireless working using the cable. If not we can get it working.
