Connecting the HP® Officejet 6600 e-All-in-One Printer to the wireless network of your Linksys router is easy. Read the steps below for detailed instructions on how to do this.
Set up Requirements

To connect the printer, follow these steps:

The message Connection Successful will be displayed once the printer has successfully connected to the router’s wireless network. Press OK.
Extending the range of your wireless network
There are instances when you experience Wi-Fi dead spots or locations in your house where there is poor or no signal from the wireless router. This may be caused by obstructions such as walls, furniture and fixtures or just areas that are out of range of the router's signal. The Linksys Range Extender (RE1000, RE1000 v1.5) is a device that will provide the solution to getting poor or no signal because it extends the wireless range of your main router.
