    You need a wireless device of some time on your computer... modem, switch, access point, or other. Then just use the disc that came with the printer to install it. You will get an icon on the screen that shows you it is working.

    Each wireless printer has a configuration that needs to find and setup for
    your wireless router. Typically, you first WIRE the printer directly to the router,
    setup the config on the printer, and then disconnect it and go wireless.
    If you have any other wireless device(s), then this is very similar to what you've
    already done before.

    You will need the wireless settings from your router, eg:
    the SSID and the encryption type (WEP,WPA,WPA-2) and the encryption key itself.

    I suspect it is the wireless setup in your laptop, or the way your printer shows up in your network.

    You may have to go to the HP website for the patch and critical update you can download.
    Otherwise, a full uninstal may be needed, including removal from the registery before you try installing again.

    I'm sorry, but I don't understand your question. Perhaps you could expand it somewhat?
