How to configure WiFi connection on a HP F4580

Just a note to myself as I wasted more time than I should have fixing this.

I recently changed the WiFi access credentials and my HP F4580, obviously, stopped working. Neither the Mac nor the Windows drivers I had let me edit the WiFi settings but I finally found a way to reset the WiFi configuration:

  • Turn on the printer
  • Click and hold down the Cancel button
  • Click and release the WiFi button
  • Release the Cancel button
This creates a ad hoc network called hpsetup that you can connect to via WiFi to configure the router.


  1. This came in very useful after spending 2 hours with no luck! Thank you!

  2. The clients at times have less or no learning about the item and the ways if utilizing it as HP continues refreshing renditions. HP client mind support is across the board for these worries. visit here

  3. One of the reasons for this is the persistent connection to the internet on my cellular iPad. I have sold my 3rd generation iPad, and have gone wifi mini, full-time. Despite my need for an internet connection while out and about, this arrangement is not a problem. visit this page

  4. When you use a genuine service, you will be able to provide instructions, share materials and choose the formatting style. Unique wifi names
