Re: HP 3054A Printer can't connect to Pace Americas 4111N Router

Thanks.  All of my wireless devices connect to the network except the printer.  MAC filtering is disabled.  The radio is fine, it works when the security to the network is disabled.  I also checked using my father's printer ( same model) and his could not connect as well.  I have configured both with the usb cable and without wirelessly.  


Perhaps my best bet is to just change the network security settings to a WEP but ATT won't help me to reconfigure my system without pay support.

Although setting security to WEP might solve the problem with the printer, I would not reccomend the downgrade in security.


Is the printer still under warranty? If it is I would ship it back, as there is obvoiusly a fault if the only way it connects is with WEP security settings.


Have you updated the printers firmware? If not I would suggest trying that.


To update the printer, unfortunately it needs internet access, so you will need to set the gateway to WEP temporarily, get the printer connected, and follow the directions below which are from the HP website.

How can you be in two places at once, when your not anywhere at all?
