How To Add Wireless Printer To Chromebook

Chromebook is a Linux-based Chrome OS Operating system. The uniqueness of Chromebook is that most of the applications are accessible in the cloud rather than the machine itself. Acer and Samsung were the first Chromebooks to launch in 2011.

The wireless printer comes with a wireless adapter that can connect to the wireless network. It enables devices connected to the network to start printing. The only difference between a wireless and wired printer is that you can place the wireless printer anywhere in your workplace or home within the connectivity range, whereas you cannot move the wired printer once setup.

Here are the steps to connect a wireless printer to your Chromebook. The steps are done on the HP wireless printer, so make sure you have your printer connected to your wireless network.

  • Go to the LCD control panel of your wireless printer.
  • Select the Network setup or the wireless menu (depending on the type of printer)
  • Press the settings option of the wireless network.
  • Select the Wireless setup wizard.
  • The printer will display a set of wireless connections.
  • Select your network SSID.
  • The screen will now prompt you to enter the password for your wireless network.
  • Enter the network password and press, OK.

In some printers, they are not equipped with the control panel, so you can use the buttons to open the wireless network.

  • Press and hold the Wireless and Cancel buttons together to power on the Wi-Fi.
  • The wireless light will now flash on your printer.

Now, on your Chromebook,

  • Launch the home screen. Click the clock on the bottom-right corner of the screen.
  • Select the settings icon on the menu.
  • Navigate to the last option on the Settings screen and click the Advanced settings options.
  • In the Advanced settings menu, click the option of the printer.
  • Select the Add printer. The screen will display the printers close to your Chromebook.
  • Click the Add button. The Chromebook will now configure the settings and connect your wireless printer to Chromebook.
  • You can now perform a test print to check if the connection between your wireless printer and the Chromebook is successful. If so, you can now start printing from your Chromebook.
