Locate and install a HP network printer with the HP Wizard.
HP has an installation wizard for Windows XP-7-8 and a Wizard for Windows 10
But the one for Windows 10 doesn't do it.
That's where you use Windows 7-8 and ignore the error messages.
And it works.
You can download it here
Click on setup
Klik op next,
If the (wrong W10) program has already been installed, it must be removed
Click on remove en next.
And once removed, click again on the setup file jet-direct and then click i accept again.
Then pay attention because you have to click on launch and then finish
Then you have to see the following
You have to start the program again
Ignore the warning
If you don't see anything, it is hidden behind the open windows.
You have to close it/them
Click on next and wired
If it's all right, you can see the ip address of the printer(s)
Write that on including the points. Here it is 126.96.36.199 but it will be a different number in another network.
Automattically is ok. Click on next
If all is well, the printer driver will be downloaded and installed.
If that doesn't work, you need to go to the HP website drivers and downloads to pick up the driver.
Printing a test page doesn't make sense because the printer is installed on and parallel port and you will need to go to the network soon.
When the printer is installed, go to start settings and then to printers and faxes
Click with your right mouse button on the name of that printer
Choose properties and then ports
And then add port
Select the lower Standard TCP/IP port and then the new port.
On the top line, type the IP address you found, including the points.
The port name is then automatically adjusted.
Choose next and then complete
Start, Settings, Printers and fxa devices
Right-click the name of that printer with your right mouse button.
Then choose for the properties of that printer and then again ports
Stand on the boundary of the text port and description and pull that part to the right.
If it is all right, you will see the correct IP address.
If something goes wrong in the future, the order of the ip addresses may have changed and the print job will not be sent to the correct address.
Then use that jet-direct program again to find the correct address.
But fixing the IP address in your router settings is preferable.
If there is a paper jam, check the paper in the drawer.
Then you must first open and close the toner cover on the front side.
You can also take the toner out of it to see if paper has got stuck there.
Printer on and off also wants to help out sometimes
