Setting up the wireless network is such a pain for this printer!!!
Laura T.
This was not a problem before I installed this driver on my computer (which uses Windows XP).
A. Louden
It is very easy to operate and the quality of the copies/prints is very good.

1. Support Wireless connection.
2. Good price $150 in staples if you have a printer to recycle.
3. Auto double sided printing. Save trees.
4. Auto doc feeder. Now I can scan/print when I go out for lunch.

1. Setting up wireless connection by following the quick start guide is a huge mistake.

I tried this on a Vista machine. The machine can print for about 30 minutes, and it goes offline. The HP imaging device monitor cannot detect the device, and it refused to launch. After about 1 hour I realized the IP address of the machine was changed because I restarted everything.

To avoid the problem, the best way to setup the machine is:
1. Setup network connection from the machine menu, do not use the setup CD.
2. Once the machine is connected, go to the wireless router config menu, and reserve the IP address for the machine. Now the machine will always use the same IP address.
3. Install the printer driver. You can copy the setup CD to the harddrive to speed up the installation process.
4. Run setup.exe, select add a device->through the network. Your machine should be detected by the setup program, and you should be able glide from here.

Good luck!

One more thing, when you scan make sure the firewall does not block the communication between the machine and the scanning software.

So far I've had this printer almost two weeks, and I think I've finally figured out how to get it to stop crippling my system.

At first, the drivers on the CD caused my internet connection to drop every minute or so. I downloaded the latest drivers from the HP website and at first it appeared that things improved, but I discovered that the drivers caused my computer to hang after a short time and hose my system so bad it wouldn't even shut down! On one occasion of turning my computer off without shutting down, it actually messed up my operating system and I had to rebuild my machine!

I can definitively trace the problem to the HP drivers because the problems occur only after installing the drivers, the problems disappear when the drivers are uninstalled, and even on a freshly built system I experience the same issues right after installing the HP drivers!

For those stuck in a similar rut, here's the steps I've gone through after many hours of tinkering and talking with HP support to get things working (hopefully):

1. Download the latest drivers from the HP site. Version seems to work okay.
2. Don't install the "Smart Web Printing" components (they may hang IE).
3. Give your printer a static IP address through the controls on the physical printer (you can't do it through the management software).
4. Disable the three HP-related services in services.msc.
5. DO NOT allow an automatic update installing the ~April 2008 Imaging Device Functions "critical patch" which will corrupt your system.

Other than the driver problems, the printer itself is fantastic. I've had printers hooked up to print servers before, but never an all-in-one that allowed printing, scanning AND fax-related activities over the network.

My old HP PSC950 "broke" after 7 years of light use so I researched most everything out there. I wanted an all-in-one that was wireless. Looked at HP's, Canon's and Epson's offerings and read reviews. Found the HP J6480. Couldn't find any reviews at the time but it was everything I was looking for. All-in-one features and wireless, obviously, AND it also uses only 2 ink cartridges. The document feeder and duplexer are nice. No color LCD which is fine by me. The footprint is a little deeper and a little wider than the 950 but it fit where I needed it to fit. Wireless setup is easy, if you don't follow the directions in the manual. Please see Chong Yip's review. I basically did the same thing. If someone else other than you configured your router's security settings, you may want to find that someone to help.

If I had to make any complaints about the printer itself, there are 3. One is that it's kinda loud when it starts up and when it prints, compared to my HP 6980. Two is that when faxing using the document feeder, if you're faxing 2-sided sheets and have to put each side through to scan into memory, if you're not fast enough the J6480 will start sending it off. Maybe it's a setting but it would've been nice if it could ask if I was ready. I guess in an office environment, you would just leave it and have it take care of itself. Three is that the paper tray leaves much to be desired. While my old 950 and new 6980 have slide out paper "catchers" and a slot for 4x6 photo paper, the J6480 does not. The tray is angled up and fixed position so paper shouldn't fall.

But in the end, these 3 complaints aren't enough to knock my rating down.

I have an Intel Mac running OS-X 10.4 with WinXP running on Parallels. I love the fact this is a Network printer since Macs have heartburn if a USB device is powered off or unplugged while sleeping.

My philosophy is to never use the CD in the box - always download the latest software from the website. The software takes up over 400 meg and there are no checkboxes to disable some of the features. It was a clean install and I did not have to reboot the mac. I also didn't mess with the wireless and just turned the radio off. I hard-wired the printer to the wireless router. The first gotcha is it won't let you set the IP address unless it's plugged into a live network. DHCP worked, but I overwrote it because I like to know where my peripherals are.

Some of the software I couldn't figure out, like fax printing from the PC. Faxing into the PC requires Windows, which is not my primary OS. Some great features include a scan over Ethernet is simply amazing and doesn't require any software. The document feeder appears sturdy and double sided printing works. Scans are crisp, but the software is too "helpful" so as to be confusing. It's easier to simply load the pro scan software and select a target rather than going through the device manager and device chooser. Installation using TCP requires the printer to be on before you run it, not after - although, this may be contrary to USB. Try it first with the printer off and see if it works.

No less than 28 times (I counted), the manual says to use the included telephone cord which came in the box... which is too short for my setup. The secret to making it work may be to nudge the fax speed down from 33k to 14k, which worked like a champ. The printout was a bit fuzzy.
