    Hey all,

    I am trying to connect a HP Deskjet 3054 to an iMac and MBP (both running 10.8.5) wirelessly. Everything works fine with the printer plugged in via USB, but I can't for the life of me figure out how to connect the printer wirelessly. Could anybody walk me through the process?
    :confused:
    Thanks a lot in advance,
    BeeHive

    This HP wireless support page has some good tips.

    Main tip, I think, if you tried installing the original HP software from the CD that came with the printer, there's good ideas about REMOVING that software, and downloading the specific update from the HP web site, or even checking in your System Preferences/Printer pane to see if the printer is properly recognized, and to see if your Software Update in OS X offers an HP update to download.

    And, I agree with McGiord - HP printers are picky about network connections. If you get to work with them a lot, and different models, you get an idea about what may be a good fix. If you just have one or two HPs, then maybe you'll get lucky the first time…. :D
