HP Printer Not Found on Wireless HP Driver Setup Support

Sometimes your system does not find your Wireless Networked HP Printer. To set up your printer to a wifi network you must have the HP full feature driver that can be either available as a disc in a toolkit given to you or can be downloaded from the HP website. If you don’t have a driver installer and you try connecting your printer to the network, you may get the following type of errors:
  • Printer not found
  • Unable to find the printer
  • No devices found
  • Your printer could not be found on your wireless network

To avoid the same, you must have a full-featured printer driver software installed on your system before proceeding to connect your printer to the wireless or wired network. Below we have listed the steps to troubleshoot issues that can cause network printer setup problems. Further Support for HP Printer may help you resolve your driver or wireless connection issue instantly via remote access.

Step 1: Restart the Computer, Printer, and Router

  • Try restarting the computer, printer, and router to resolve any error states present during the printer setup.
  • Try disconnecting the power cord from the router and Turn off the printer.
  • Close all running programs on your computer and shut down the computer.
  •  Now reconnect the power cord to the router and wait for the connected status of the internet.
  • Turn on both the printer & computer.
  • Try installing the HP driver and software again.

Step 2: Check the Network and Printer Connection Status

  • Ensure your network is working fine with printer network setup.
  • Wireless network connection: On the printer, open the Wireless network or Settings menu to make sure the wireless signal is turned on. Is the Wireless icon light is steady or blinking?
  • Wired network connection: Check that the cable is connected to the printer Ethernet port and to an available port on the router. The green link light should be steady, and the orange activity light should blink when the cable is connected.
  • Make sure your printer is not connected to a guest or host network.
  • Make sure your dual band router is set to the 2.4 GHz band.
  •  View the network name and status of the connection notification icon.
  • Reconnect to your own network.
  •  If the network signal strength is weak, move the computer and printer closer to the router.
  • Try installing the HP driver and software again.

Step 3: Manually connect the printer to your Wireless Network

  • Try connecting the printer to your network manually.
  • You can use the Wireless Setup Wizard or Wi-Fi Protected Setup if you have a touch or text-based control panel.
  • After connecting, try installing the HP driver and software again.

Step 4: Download &Run the HP Print and Scan Doctor

  • Download HP Print and Scan Doctor from the web and run it quick to resolve the issue.

  • Make sure the printer is turned on and connected.
  • If the printer is not found on the list, click My product is not listed, and then click Retry.
  • Select your printer and then click Next.
  • If a connection problem is detected, connect the printer, follow the instructions on the screen, and then click Retry.

Step 5: Temporarily disable firewall software on the computer

  • Firewall software although tends to block outside threats protecting your system yet some settings or configurations can block communication with network printers. To disable Firewall, follow these steps:
  • Return to the Print and Scan Doctor window, and then click Network.
  • In the drop-down menu, click Troubleshooting Firewalls.
  • Click the name of any firewall software on your system that has an Enabled status and then clicks Disable.
  • Try installing the HP driver and software again.
  • If the installation completed, consult the firewall software support to change settings such as security level, trusted zones, and open ports to allow communication with HP software and websites.
  • Now, re-enable the firewall in the Print and Scan Doctor.
  • If the installation failed, the firewall software is not causing the issue. In that case, Re-enable the firewall and continue to the next step.

Step 6: Uninstall the HP driver and software

It may be possible that some of your HP software programs are installed incorrectly. To check the case, you need to uninstall your HP software system, the steps being listed below.
·         Disconnect the cable from the printer if it is connected via USB.
