Which printer to purchase? HP 477- fdn or HP 477-fnw. Home network with wireless. Want Airprint.

I can see that FNW is wi-fi, but if the printer is connected to our home network with wi-fi, do I need the printer to be wifi in order to print from a phone with Airprint? If I am using Airprint, am I printed through the network or directly to the printer? Does my network need special configuration to use Airprint?

Hi Scott –

 

Welcome to our forums and thanks for your post. AirPrint works should work with printers connected to your home network via Wi-Fi, or if hard-lined in via Ethernet. You shouldn’t need any special configuration to make it work, though its best to ensure you have the most up to date drivers for your printer. If you have any other questions feel free to post again.
