What you need

A functional Ethernet network that includes an Ethernet router, switch, or a
wireless access point with Ethernet ports.

CAT-5 Ethernet cable. If the Ethernet cable provided is not long enough for your
network configuration, you might need to purchase a longer cable.

Although standard Ethernet cables look similar to standard telephone cables,
they are not interchangeable. There is a different number of wires in each one,
and each has a different connector. An Ethernet cable connector (also called an
RJ-45 connector) is wider and thicker and always has 8 contacts on the end. A
phone connector has between 2 and 6 contacts.

A desktop computer or laptop with either a wired or wireless connection to the
router or access point.


The HP All-in-One supports both 10 Mbps and 100 Mbps Ethernet

networks. If you are purchasing, or have purchased, a network interface
card (NIC), make sure it can operate at either speed.

Broadband Internet access such as cable or DSL (only if you want to access
HP Instant Share directly from the device). For more information on HP Instant
Share, see
