How to Connect the Officejet 6700 to a Wireless Network

The HP Officejet 6700 is one of the best all-in-one printers that I have used recently, and a lot of that has to do with the ease of which it can be used wirelessly. Much like the Photosmart 6510 that we previously wrote about, the Officejet 6700 can be connected to a wireless network directly from the touch screen control panel on the printer. This will allow you to easily find the printer from a Windows or Mac computer, and makes for one of the quickest possible setups of a printer that is capable of AirPrint. So continue reading below to learn how to get your Officejet 6700 on your wireless network.
