All the HP printers are capable of printing the documents using a wireless router. However, if you do not have a wireless router and still want to print the documents wirelessly, simply set up a peer-to-peer wireless network or ad-hoc network. For this, follow these steps:

  1. Reset your printer settings to its factory default (if it is connected to your home wireless network). To do this, check your printer’s manual.
  2. After doing this make sure that the printer’s wireless in ON (for which, the blue light should be illuminated on the front display of the printer). If it is not, simply check your printer’s manual and follow the instructions to turn the light on
  3. Search for a local wireless or Wi-Fi network with the name starting with HP. To search, simply click on the Wi-Fi icon available in the bottom right corner in the taskbar. However, searching for the Wi-Fi may be different depending on the computer system you are using. If you are unable to search the wireless network, go through these steps:
    1. Reset the printer to its default settings
    2. Enable ad-hoc or peer-to-peer networking in your device
    3. Else contact HP printer toll-free number and get an instant help from a technician
  4. Now, connect to that wireless network with the name beginning with HP. You can simply install the software for your printer as the peer-to-peer network doesn’t require a wireless password
  5. Upon prompt during installation, choose “Through the Network, Network or Wireless”. The label for three options may vary depending on the software version. The software will detect your wireless printer automatically on the network

Connecting your printer to a wireless router is recommended only over a peer-to-peer or ad-hoc connection. It is considered to be highly reliable and more secure. While performing the aforementioned steps, if you are unable to do anything or experience an issue, pick up your phone and reach out for HP printer support number.

If you are working with Epson All-in-one wirelessly or using Epson Wi-Fi, the following setup to check the direct cable connection do not applies. 

(1)- Isolating the Epson scanner issue, means making a start with standard check-ups:

(b)- Check if any error indicator in red or amber color is blinking. If yes, then attend to these first with the help of user manual.

(c)- It may be a USB or FireWire, check whether data cable is properly connected to both the ends or not.

(d)-  From the “Applications or Utilities” option open the System Profiler and check whether USB or FireWire scanner is detected or not.

(e)- If the scanner is appearing over there, means that the scanner is detected by your Mac PC but the possible issue may be due to incorrect driver installation or Mac operating system is not up to date.

Please note that you should use the Twain compliant application like Adobe Photoshop if your scanner is using Epson Twain feature.

On the other hand, you may use the “image Capture” option to test your Epson scanner. If it scans properly, it’s ok, otherwise the issue may be because of Epson scan software. To resolve the same you immediately contact to Epson scanner support for quick help.
