The HP Envy Pro 6452 Setup printer supports two different connectivity options, namely, Wi-Fi and USB. So, you can choose any one of these options to install the printer on your Windows or Mac computer. The below section explains both the methods in detail.
Initially, ensure that your HP printer’s hardware setup is completed.
Next, download the HP Smart app or the HP printer full feature driver for your computer if you haven’t downloaded it yet.
Now, turn on the printer if it is turned off.
Open the HP Smart app or the driver file on your computer to begin the USB setup.
Sign in to your HP account if prompted.
Connect your HP Envy printer directly to the Windows or Mac computer when prompted during the setup. You can use the standard USB cable for this purpose.
Finish the rest of the USB setup process by following the instructions displayed on the screen.
If you’ve already installed your printer over a wireless connection, but now, you wish to change it to USB, connect the printer to your computer using the USB cable, and run the HP Smart app or the HP printer software to finish the setup.
You can install your HP Envy Pro 6452 Setup printer on the Windows or Mac computer over a wireless network using the PUSH or PIN method of WPS. Let’s see both the methods briefly.
If the router you’re using for the Wi-Fi setup has the Wi-Fi Protected Setup (WPS) button, use this method to install and use the printer on your computer over a wireless network.
Initially, enable the WPS Push Button method on your printer. To do so:
Locate the Wi-Fi and Power buttons on your printer’s control panel.
Now, press and hold both these buttons at the same time.
Release the buttons approximately after 3 seconds.
Check to ensure that the outside edges of your printer are pulsing in purple.
Now, turn on your wireless router if it is turned off.
Locate the Wi-Fi Protected Setup button on your router and press it.
Once your printer is connected to the wireless network, the outside edge glows purple.
Now, connect your Windows or Mac computer to the same wireless network to which the printer is connected.
Run the HP Smart app or the HP printer software to complete the rest of the wireless setup.
Just like the PUSH method of WPS, the WPS-PIN method is easy and simple to perform.
As the first step of wireless setup via WPS PIN, initiate the WPS PIN method on your printer. To do so:
Locate the Information button on your printer’s control panel and hold it down for a few seconds.
Within a few seconds, all the buttons on the control panel light up; release the Information button.
Now, press and hold the Information and Resume buttons at the same time for five seconds and release them.
The WPS-PIN method will be enabled, and the printer will start to print a page with the WPS-PIN code.
Now, go to your router’s web access page.
Click on the WPS tab.
Enter your printer’s WPS-PIN in the given field.
Click Apply > OK.
Once your HP Envy printer is connected to the wireless network, the light bar on your printer glows white.
Finish the Wi-Fi setup by connecting your computer to the same network and installing the printer driver or app on it.
