Laserjet 1022NW unable to reinstall

Help!  Trying to reinstall my LJ1022nw wirelessly and can't do it.  Have done it many times before with no problem.  It will connect to the wireless router OK (verified by pinging and could access the EWS ok) but it will not install.  The installation software never finds the printer even when I specify the ip address.  Have also tried to manually connect to the router successfully but have the same problem that it cannot find the printer on the network and install.  I need to connect wirelessly due to my network setup so enet is not an option.  I even removed and uninstalled the software for my other printer so the LJ 1022nw would be the only printer installed...still would not install.


Thanks for any help.

Re: Laserjet 1022NW unable to reinstall

Hi Bill,


Have you tried using the HP Universal Printer Driver (UPD)?  It enables you to connect to the printer (by its IP address) and will dynamically re-configure itself for your printers capabilities.


You can download the UPD from the following location


PCL6 UPD​riverDownload.jsp?lang=en&cc=us&prodNameId=327155...


PS UPD​riverDownload.jsp?lang=en&cc=us&prodNameId=503550...


I would suggest that you try the PCL6 driver first

If memory serves, isn't the 1022 a host based printer?  Therefore the UPDs will not work.
