Re: wireless printer

I prefer network to wireless less hassles but as said if you want to connect just to one PC USB is the way to go and 99% of printers still ship with USB

HP Deskjet
you got a better chance with the manual than asking on a forum after giving no information

The specs say it has USB2

Set up a USB printer connection (Windows)

Download the HP Smart app for Windows, and then follow the instructions to set up a USB connection.

Learn how to set up an HP Printer using a USB connection in windows 10 or 11.

If you already connected the printer USB cable to your computer, disconnect it, and then remove the printer from your computer.

Search for and open Printers & scanners, and then select the name of your printer from the list.

Click Remove device, click Yes, and then restart the computer.

Make sure an open USB port is available on your computer. Do not connect the printer to a USB hub or docking station.

Go to HP Smart - Microsoft Store (in English), and then install and open the HP Smart app.

If the setup does not begin automatically, click the Add icon to add your printer.

Follow the prompts to complete the printer setup.
However, on the product section page, it states



They want you to download the app to set it up wirelessly, then connect with USB (not very user-friendly) - conflicting info on the two pages

Good luck , sorry to tell you this, have a hp printer and it is wireless, everything
downloaded as per on line manual. Icon on screen, opens all tools etc , and nothing happens . Works well if I use Windows print set up but try to scan or do anything via its icon its a no no. Really need to hard wire if you can

Ignore the wireless app. Power up PC, connect usb lead from printer to PC, power up printer and sit back while software and drivers installed.

As Seph would say, simples.
