    I don't know if someone wanted to install an HP printer to my MBP or not. But "hpsetup" is listed under the devices. I have tried to get rid of it, but when I clicked it, I lost my internet and it took me a few minutes to get it back. How do I get rid of it without loosing my wireless?

    Thank you.

    Ditto!

    This is happening to me right now as I type this! Does anyone know what this is or how to block/get rid of it?!

    I've attached a screen grab of what I'm talking about

    It is someone's WiFi-enabled HP printer. Ignore it just as you ignore their listed WiFi access points.

    It's just a wireless device in range, it doesn't appear as if you're connected to it. Nothing to stress about, I see it when I'm in coffee shops and airports all the time. I'm guessing you live in an apartment or other densely populated area.

    Thanks. I was just wondering because it was odd. I was going to try to print out something.
