  • The operating system installed on your computer is in control of the wireless adapter through which the HP software will retrieve the desktop or laptop’s current network settings(the username and password).
  • Your computer device and your printer should be connected to a wireless connection.
  • Your computer is connected to your wireless network over 2.4 GHz. (NOTE: HP printers do not work in 5.0 GHz networks. But, you might be able to connect the printer to network using different setup methods till your modem or router supports 2.4 GHz.
  • Make note that your desktop or laptop does not use a static IP address.
  • Your 123.hp.com/envy4500 printer will be HP Auto Wireless Connect mode for two hours after it is switched on for the first time or during installation before it’s connected to a network. (If your printer has been switched on for more than two hours and the software hasn’t still tried to connect the printer to your wireless network, then you can reset the mode.
  • Open printer’s control panel and then click on ‘Restore Network Settings’ or ‘Restore Network defaults’.)

Sometimes, other technical and environmental factors may also affect the compatibility of HP Auto Wireless Connect. The recommended setup method is offered during the installation of your printer.

During the setup process, a part of the process may require your computer to be disconnected from the wireless network temporarily, which means you wouldn’t have access to the internet. Before performing this operation, make sure you save any online documents you are working on or complete any downloads before continuing.

If HP Auto Wireless Connect is not successful or not offered during the software installation, then you will be asked to use another wireless setup method.
