      Re: HP wireless printer help

      @antares,

      I had a similar situation with setting up a friend's wireless printer.
      (Lexmark all in one wireless printer, HP laptop & Sagem router)

      On the first install & following the on screen instructions exactly (plugging in a USB lead when told etc.) the printer light said it was connected wirelessly but would not print (unless the USB lead was connected).

      I think from memory that we had to input the encryption password as found on the base of the Sagem router, during the first install.

      Subsequently tried reloading the software, but never connecting the USB lead & the printer then worked wirelessly.

      I'm still not sure why it worked second time around but it may be worth trying?

      Regards,

      Max.
