Customer Question

My HP Envy 5544 was connected to my MacBook Air but I had to have a new Wi-Fi connected last week and I can't get my printer to print. It says Network Name (SSID) found but Fail
JA: How are you connecting to your printer: wirelessly or by USB?
Customer: Probably USB although I'm uncertain. The printer is connected by a plug to the Wi-Fi Virgin Media box so assume that means USB
JA: When did you last update the printer driver software?
Customer: I don't remember ever updating the printer driver software
JA: Anything else you want the Printer Expert to know before I connect you?

Make sure the router and computer are turned on, and that the computer is connected to the same wireless network to which you want to connect the printer. Turn on the printer and place it close to the computer and within range of the router during the setup procedure.

Use the built-in Wireless Setup Wizard to set up your printer on your wireless network.

  1. Turn on the printer, if it is not already turned on.

  2. On the printer control panel, touch the Wireless icon .

    The Wireless Summary screen displays.

  3. Touch the Settings icon , and then touch Wireless Setup Wizard.

    A list of wireless networks displays.

  4. Touch the name of your wireless network.

    If the list does not contain your network name, scroll down, then touch Enter New Network Name to type it in manually.

  5. If prompted, type the WEP or WPA key (WIFI password) using the on-screen keyboard. Make sure you type the uppercase (capital) and lowercase (small) letters exactly. Otherwise, the wireless connection fails.

  6. Touch Done, and then touch OK.

Once done, restart the MAC and try to print.
