HP laserjet P1102W wifi setup fail

Here’s an unofficial but quite professional screencast showing how it should work:

First I try to connect to the printer network:

Connect to P1102W network

Connect to P1102W network

Then I try opening the print setup:

Then Print Utility
and nothing happens apart from the OSX lit up click lamp on the button.which I tried despite the fact that the open printer utility fails (it should launch a web page hosted by the printer itself).

This is the start of the problem: it never seems to know where it is, or if it does it won’t volunteer this information using the Bonjour protocol by default, but it’s address does appear in tcpdump when connected to its own “device” network:

The official way to find this out is via by printing out a test page. The address assigned is always on the 169 subnet and keeps changing. When I apply the changes to the wireless alone or the wireless and what are the correct network settings together it goes in to a hanging mode where the printout shows it has attached itself to my network but its address is still on the 169 subnet and it’s using its own dhcp.

One last thing to try might be to set my own network to the same as this but as there are at several other devices on 192 I’m reluctant to even try that out.

    HP Customer Care http://welcome.hp.com/country/uk/en/support.html

    Dear Tom,

    Thank you for contacting HP Customer Care.

    I gather that when trying to print from your HP LaserJet Pro P1102w Printer it prints duplicate pages, and only starts after pressing pause/start and also after trying to reset wireless but it remains on 0.0.0.0 and it has lost its old address. Connection to ad hoc also fails.

    I am glad to assist you.

    Cause:

    * This issue would be causing because of the inproper setup of the printer or the print drivers.

    Solution: I would request you to please follow the below steps which will help in printing the network configuration test page and also please get back to us with the network configuration test page to check what the best can be done and also I would request you to please get back with the below asked details.

    Printing Network Configuration Page:

    Make sure that the Ready light ( ) is on and that the product is idle and silent.
    Press and hold the Cancel button ( ), and release it when the Ready light ( ) begins blinking.
    The Configuration page prints.
    Other Details:

    1. Does the printer prints when connected with USB Cable?

    2. How is the printer connected?

  2. admin December 22, 2010 at 9:08 am #

    Thanks HP 🙂
    I can print via USB but only if I pause and restart the printer, then it always prints two copies 🙁
    At the moment I’ve reset it to 0.0.0.0 but cannot get it to enable wireless with the flashing blue light for some reason.

    You can find a solution to this issue here: http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?docname=c02205132&tmp_track_link=ot_faqs/top_issues/en_us/c02205132/loc:10&lc=en&dlc=en&cc=us&lang=en&product=4110396

    This solve the problem of duplicated copies of the same print job.
