This question came from our site for professional and enthusiast programmers.

Has it been configured at least once via the usb plugged in? – SgtOJ Nov 28 '10 at 0:01

I had this problem once before. My solution was to use the drivers disk. The drivers disk comes with a utility that will configure the printer to work wireless if wasn't configured already or it would find the wireless printer, install the drivers, and configure it for use. If you do not have the driver then search HP's site for them. Here is the official drivers.

Will update answer if more information is provide.
