Nowadays, many things are changing. We now need to configure our printers to make them print via wifi. Fortunately for us, most printer brands have installed this option on domestic and business printers alike, and it seems we’re getting closer and closer to stop using printer cables at all.

This is why we need to tell you how to configure your HP 4500 printer to make it print via wireless or wifi network.

HP 4500 printer is the latest HP model sold in Latin America, and it’s known for its high page yield. However, some customers have mentioned HP has removed a try from the top of the printer from the Latin American model, and that the same tray is only included in US versions of the product.

Apparently, this is why there’s a bit of extra space next to the scanner, but this is only a minor issue and we will continue to purchase these product regardless.

In order to connect your printer to a wireless or wifi network, you will need a fully functional router and a bit of experience.
You will also need to know the router’s password, if it has one, to continue with the installation and configuration process. It will also come in handy when installing the printer drivers on your operating system. If you don’t know exactly what operating system you’re using on your computer, please read the following post to find out how to do it.
