"It shouldn't be this hard to connect a wireless printer!!"
I'm trying to connect my printer to a new network, and they got me doing to hokey pokey with all the button pushes. Hold this button for 22 seconds while unplugging the power cord. Press the power button to the rhythm of the Beverly Hills Cop song.
I googled and got to a 13 page discussion on the HP forum on this question with no straight answers. An HP representative is answering each question saying "I will send you a private message with instructions" WTF???

This is my last fucking printer. Laser printers are supposed to be fine if you hardly ever use them and wont clog up like the inkjet one I had. If there's an issue with it thats it, Im never buying a printer again. Printers are the shittiest piece of technology. It's like even the people designing the software/hardware for them hate them so much they can barely expend any effort.

Like you gotta log off of your wifi, then connect to them as an access point and then go to some random IP address to get into their settings...JUST to set the wireless access/wireless printing capability???
Ever try walking a non-techie person through THAT shit???

Finally got my device to connect to the printer. Got a test page to print out with the IP address.
Thought I was on my way home. Until...."This site can not be reached" I'm moderately tech savvy. But this some other stuff.
