echnology summary
HP offers convenient home networking and built-in wireless capabilities in two new inkjet
products—the HP Deskjet 5800 series color inkjet printer and the HP PSC 2500 series Photosmart
all-in-one printer, flatbed fa
x, scanner, copier.
Built-in wired and wireless networking capabilities allow customers to connect the printer o
r all-in-
one directly to home, home-office and small-office networks—enabling multiple users to print from a
single device. The PSC 2500 series offers addi
tional functionality with access to memory card
readers, flatbed scanning, and electronic fax transmission. Product features are accessible to all
computers on the network, so customers enjoy the same functionality available with a USB
connection.
Two solutions in one
Built-in wireless Wi-Fi (Wireless Fidelity) networking capabilities provide an ideal solution fo
r home,
home-office a
nd small-office networks and are particularly well suited for those using a wireless
router or home gateway to share an Internet connection. Both devices also offer wired networking
via embedded Ethern
et connectivity. Embedded Ethernet allows small business, home, and home-
office users on a wired network to easily share printing and/or all-in-one functions.
The combination of both wired and wireless networking

in the same product offers customers
flexibility as their home- or small-office networks grow or evolve over time. With support for the
leading industry standards—Ethernet and Wi-Fi— HP Deskjet 5800 and PSC 2500 s
eries offer
excellent integration, simplicity, and compatibility for home environments with multiple computers.
This document briefly discusses wired networking capabilities offered with the Deskjet 5800 and
PSC 2500 series first, followed by a more detailed discussion on wireless networking options.
Network configuration tools and product features are outlined in the Appendix.
Wired networking
What is it?
HP Deskjet 5800 and PSC 2500 series offer embedded Ethernet capabilities that allow multiple
users on a wired netwo
rk to print from the device. In addition to printing, the PSC 2500 series
offers network users access to memory card readers, scanning, and other all-in-one functions.
1
Only one networking method, either wired or wireless, is available at any given time. When an Ethernet
cable is connected to the printing device, the wireless radio is automatically turned off. It can only be turned
on when the Ethernet cable is removed. The USB port is always active and can be used simultaneously with
one of the networking methods.
