How to Change the Wireless Settings for an HP Photosmart Plus B209a

Save

The HP Photosmart Plus B209a relies on Wi-Fi Protected Setup to locate and connect to a network. WPS enables users to set up wireless networks and hardware with ease; depending on your model of router, you can connect the printer to the network with just the push of a button, or using PIN verification. Before reconfiguring the wireless settings on the HP Photosmart Plus, reset the network configuration on the device.

PIN

  • Sign on to a computer connected to the wireless network. Press "Windows-R," type "cmd" and then click "OK." A command-line interface window opens.

  • Type "ipconfig" (without the quotations) into the prompt and then press "Enter" to view the connection details.

  • Review the information under Wireless LAN Adapter Wi-Fi and browse to the address listed next to Default Gateway.

  • Check the product label on your router to determine the default login credentials. Sign in to the router using the appropriate username and password.

  • Browse the menus to find the option to connect a device via WPS. The interface varies depending on the make, model and firmware version of your router.

  • Press the right arrow button on the printer's control panel. Select "Setup," select "Network," and then press "Restore Network Defaults."

  • Choose "Yes" to reset the wireless configuration. Press the "Home" button to return to the main screen.

  • Touch "Setup | Network | Wi-Fi Protected Setup | PIN." Press "Start." A PIN appears onscreen.

  • Enter the PIN into your router's interface within two minutes to connect the printer to the LAN.

Push-Button

  • Press the right arrow button on the control panel, touch "Setup," touch "Network," and then touch "Restore Network Defaults."

  • Select "Yes," when prompted, to remove the current settings. Press "Home" to return to the main screen.
