Links to software installation instructions

After you complete the previous setup steps, you can install the product software with the product CD or by downloading the software from the HP Web site. For instructions, click the appropriate link.
HP strongly recommends that you install the printer on a wireless network to take advantage of its full functionality and features.
The printer features are limited with a USB connection. Without a wireless network connection through the eStation Zeen (control panel) the printer will have the following limitations:
  • The printer will not have an active Internet connection.
  • You will not be able to access Apps through the eStation Zeen.
  • You will not be able to print wirelessly from your computer or the eStation Zeen.
