    Hi

    Purchased this printer some time ago, and have had issues from the start. There are no problems with printing from either my iPad or my iPhone. However when I try and print from my Mac it simply doesn't work. I have to change my Mac from the home network to another network, one that comes from the printer itself, 'HP-Print-05-Laser' I can then printer via wifi, but then have to switch back to the home network, for the internet etc.

    Does anyone know how to sort this? I have gone into the hp wifi setup page, via USB and all of my network settings are correctly entered..... I am just lost with this.

    Print until you run out of Toner, then get a Brother HL-5450DN or HL-5470DW.

    But likely, you can make the HP connect to your home network and the print from there.

    Solution.

    For anyone who has had a similar problem, if it is of interest, this problem was resolved when I altered the setting using firefox. For some reason, for me at least, safari and the HP config settings just did not work. As soon as I altered my default browser to firefox, I managed to sort it immediately.
