You can connect the device directly to a computer, or you can share the device among
other users on a network.

NOTE: Microsoft Internet Explorer 6.0 must be installed on the computer system
to run the installation program.
Also, you must have administrator privileges to install a printer driver on Windows®
2000, Windows® XP, or Windows Vista.
When setting up the device, HP recommends that you connect it after you install the
software, because the installation program is designed to provide you with the easiest
setup experience. However, if you have connected the cable first, see To connect the
device before installing the software.

You can connect the device directly to your computer using a USB cable.
NOTE: If you install the device software and connect the device to a computer
running Windows, you can connect additional devices to the same computer with
USB cables without reinstalling the device software.
When setting up the device, HP recommends that you connect the device when

To connect the device before installing the software
If you connected the device to the computer before installing the device software, the
Found New Hardware wizard displays on the computer screen.

NOTE: If you turned on the device, do not turn it off or unplug the cable from the
device while the installation program is running. If you do so, the installation
program will not finish.
1. In the Found New Hardware dialog box that displays methods for locating the
printer driver, select the Advanced option, and then click Next.
NOTE: Do not allow the Found New Hardware wizard to perform an
automatic search for the printer driver.
2. Select the check box for specifying the driver location, and ensure that the other
check boxes are clear.

NOTE: You can also share the device with other computers using a simple form
of networking known as locally-shared networking. For more information, see To
share the device on a locally shared network.
In a locally shared network, the device is connected directly to the USB connector of a
selected computer (known as the server) and is shared by other computers (clients).
NOTE: When sharing a directly connected device, use the computer with the
newest operating system as the server.
Use this configuration only in small groups or when usage is low. The connected
computer is slowed down when many users print to the device.
1. Click Start, point to Settings, and then click Printers or Printers and Faxes.
- Or -
Click Start, click Control Panel, and then double-click Printers.
2. Right-click the device icon, click Properties, and then click the Sharing tab.
3. Click the option to share the device, and give it a share name.
If the device has network capability, it can be shared in a network environment by
connecting it directly to the network. This type of connection offers the ability to
manage the device using the embedded Web server from any computer on the
network.
Choose the installation option for the type of network you have:
Client/server network: If your network has a computer acting as a dedicated print
server, install the device software on the server, and then install the device
software on the client computers. For more information see Install the device on a
network and Install the device software on client computers. This method does not
allow you to share the full functionality of the device. Client computers can only
print from the device.
Peer-to-peer network: If you have a peer-to-peer network (a network without a
dedicated print server), install the software on the computers that will be using the
device. For more information, see Install the device on a network.
In addition, you can connect to a network printer on both types of networks using the
Add Printer wizard in Windows. For more information, see Install the printer driver
using Add Printer.
Install the device on a network
Use the following steps to install the device software in the following networking
scenarios:
You have a peer-to-peer network (a network without a dedicated print server)
1. Remove the protective cover from the device's network port, and connect the
device to the network.
2. Close any third-party firewall and any applications that are running on the
computer system that are acting as the print server.
3. Insert the Starter CD into the CD drive. The CD menu starts automatically. If the
CD menu does not start automatically, browse to the CD drive of the computer,
and double-click Setup.exe.
4. On the CD menu, click Install Network/Wireless Device, and then follow the
onscreen instructions.
5. On the Connection Type screen, select Network/Wireless Device, and then click
Next.
6. Follow the onscreen instructions to complete the installation.
NOTE: To share the device with Windows client computers, see Install the device
software on client computers and To share the device on a locally shared network.
After printer drivers are installed on the computer that is acting as the print server, the
printing functionality can be shared. Individual Windows users who want to use the
network device must install the software on their computers (clients).
A client computer can connect to the device in the following ways:
• In the Printers folder, double-click the Add Printer icon and follow the instructions
for a network installation. For more information, see Install the printer driver using
Add Printer.
• On the network, browse to the device and drag it to your Printers folder.
• Add the device and install the software from the INF file on your network. On the
Starter CD, the INF files are stored in the root directory of the CD.
