We have an HP Officejet 6300 All-in-one printer which we had previously set up in a network that included a wireless router, a desktop computer that was the primary access point, another desktop, and a laptop computer. However, we changed internet providers from Verizon to Comcast which required a change in the location of the router. The router is now placed in a different room from the printer (because of issues regarding cable and the wiring of the router) and the desktop computers both use Netgear wireless hardware to access the internet; the laptop, however, doesn't need it. The manual offers a considerable number of options for set-up but they all require a wired ethernet connection- is there anyway to connect the printer to the router/computers in the network without a wired ethernet connection? Thanks for your help, I realize that this is likely a long shot, but the prospect of moving the router or the printer sort of make me nauseous, so anything I can do to avoid it would be greatly appreciated. Best,
If not, your printer cannot support the wireless feature.
