Hi Again!

I was able to fix and trouble shoot my insecure home network problem. I basically started from scratch and upgraded a few harware components. Als well now. I even got meself a wpakps (or whatever) encryption!

Anyway....

I am having trouble (LOTS OF TROUBLE) reinstalling my network printer. When I run the instal wizard for the darn thing the computer I am trying to instal the software on can't find the computer on the network. I have the cable plugged into the router and all that. I have no idea what the problem is.

Actually I have one idea. I am thinking the printer is not being allowed access to my network because of my wpa incryption. Could this be the case? I am out of ammo on this problem (spent most of the day working on it :thumbsup: ) I am coming here as a last resort. I would appreciate the help! If you have any specific questions that may pinpoint closer to what could be causing the problem please ask. Just know, that I have tried most everything!

There is no way to tell my printer that it belongs in my network workgroup.

What do you guys think about this possibility...
If I disable my encryption, and then run the printer install wizard, my computer should be able to find the printer...no? Then I should be able to enable my encryption and the printer should then be mapped. Anyway, that's my next try.

PLEASE NOTE: The printer I have is currently not installed on any of my computers in my network. It's trying to install it where I am running into problems. It will install when plugged directly into the USB port, but the printer can not be found when I try to install it wirelessly.

Thanks again for your time!

HP make Jetadmin network print server software that configures the print server. What print server are you using with that printer?
