    I Recently bought an HP Photosmart C4385, the thing is that I want to connect it to my imac wirelessly but every time I run the HP setup assistant, select the device I want to connect wirelessly and select the wireless network, even though the assistant recognize my network, gets the IP address and everything, it says that:
    "The network configuration was successfully downloaded to the
    device. However to continue configuring the device in network,
    your Mac must have access to the device. So please make sure that
    your Mac has access to the Network: "name of the network" and
    retry".

    Any advice on this will be appreciated.

    I'm having the same problem as hcak. My Airport is also randomly disconnecting from my wireless network, although I might blame that on Uverse more than anything else.

    Any resolution from anyone on the printer wireless install logjam?

    I have the HP C4580. Downloaded installer is identical to the CD in the box, according to the version #.
