  1. Check your printer. If you want to print wirelessly from your laptop, you have two basic options when it comes to installing an HP printer: You can either install a network printer that connects directly to your home network, or you can share a printer that is connected to another computer on your network. The option you choose will likely be dictated by the connections that your printer supports, as well as your home network setup.
  2. Most modern Hp printers will connect to your home’s wireless network. Some network printers can only connect via Ethernet cable. Older printers or budget printers will likely need to be connected to a computer via USB and then shared on the network.
  3. Examine your network and needs. Printers that are connected directly to the network can typically be easily accessed by both Windows and Mac laptops. Printers that are connected to a computer and then shared on the network are easily accessed by computers running the same operating system family (Windows-to-Windows or Mac-to-Mac), but get a little trickier when sharing across operating systems. Since it requires fairly different steps.5ab45c76b4f9311f6cae536ad3d0b70b

    • Installing the printer directly to the network is almost always the better choice if possible. Not only does it allow for easier connectivity, but it also means that the printer is constantly available. If you are sharing a printer that’s connected to another computer, that computer will need to be turned on in order to access the printer.

Printing to a Network Printer

  1. Connect your printer to your home network. The process for this will vary from printer to printer.

    • If you are connecting your printer via Ethernet, connect the Ethernet port on the printer to an open port on your router or network switch. This is typically all you’ll need to do for an Ethernet printer.

     

    • If you are connecting a wireless HP printer, you’ll need to use the printer’s display screen to connect to your wireless network. You’ll need to select your wireless SSID (network name) and enter the password if it is secured. The exact process will vary depending on the printer, so refer to your documentation for exact instructions.
  2. Connect to the network printer (Windows). Once the HP printer is installed on the network, you can connect to it from your laptop. These instructions work for all versions of Windows.

    • Open the Control Panel. You can access it from the Start menu. Windows 8 users can press the  Win key and type “control panel”.

     

    • Select “Devices and Printers” or “View devices and printers”.

     

    • Click Add a printer.

     

    • Select “Add a network, wireless or Bluetooth printer”. Windows 8 users will not need to select anything.

     

    • Select your network printer from the list of available printers. Follow the prompts to install the drivers automatically. If Windows cannot find the correct drivers, you may need to download them from the printer manufacturer’s support site.

  3. Connect to the network printer (Mac). Once the printer is installed on the network, you can connect to it from your laptop. These instructions work for all versions of OS X. Note that the network printer must support AirPrint or Bonjour (nearly all modern network printers do).

    • Click the Apple menu and select “System Preferences”.

     

    • Select the “Print & Scan” option from the System Preferences menu.

     

    • Click and hold the “+” button at the bottom of the list of installed printers.

     

    • Select your network printer from the list of nearby printers. If your printer isn’t listed, you may need to download the software from the printer manufacturer’s support site first.

     

    • Click the Download & Install button if it appears. While OS X comes with the software for most printers already installed, your printer may require additional software from Apple. If it does, you will be prompted to download it after adding the printer.
