Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: HP Deskjet 3050A e-All-in-One Printer (Print, Scan, Copy, AirPrint, Wireless, e-Print) (Accessory)
Bought this printer to replace an ageing Canon. It proved very straightforward to set up - getting the Network info via a temporary USB cable from the computer. Unfortunately a few weeks later we bought a new router and changed networks. Despite following the instructions it proved impossible to convert it to the new network - then after nearly 2 hours and many attempts it just worked - I still don't know what I did differently but I forgive it now. I particularly like having it's own e mail address so that you can send it e mails and documents to print from remote locations - arrive home and there they are - printed.

I had the same problem with my HP wireless printer, I changed networks and router, and it has never worked wirelesly since, despite un-istalling it and re-installing the software, it's something to do with the frequency, but you would think by unistalling and re installing it would then work.

If you plan on using the printer wireless then you must keep it in Standby mode. Switching it off completely appears to change/disrupt the IP address with the router. The only way to bring it back to connectivity then is to re-connect it with the router, and then get the computer to recognise it! Silly really.

Or you could set it up properly with a static IP address as recommended by HP on their website and then you will have no communication issues at all
