Our daughters are mostly back to college for the fall (#3 starts tomorrow). I got her twin sister a new laptop this summer because the old one had too many miles on it. I picked up an HP that was priced attractively at one of the big box stores. Since she would be in a two person dorm room with limited counter top space – I thought a wireless printer might be a good compliment. It didn’t have to be on her desk next to the laptop – it could be across the room on her dresser. She could share the printer with her roommate so they only needed one printer between the two of them
I purchased the laptop and printer in our home town before she went away to school. I configured the wireless printer connection and got it working. When we got her to school I reconnected the computer and printer to make sure they were working. So far all is good.
Now, a few weeks in to the fall quarter I get a call from the daughter. She says – Dad, the wireless printer will not print for me wirelessly – it will only print with the usb wire. AND, sometimes in the middle of the night when I am in bed the printer will start printing jobs for people I don’t even know!
Nice going HP. You continue to keep up the long time image I have of your multi-function printers. Just who at HP thinks that a printer device should need software that takes 45 minutes to install?
