    I have to reinstall my wireless printers everyday Is there a fix?


    I have had to reinstall my wireless printers everyday for the last couple of weeks. I upgraded to Windows 10 in December of 2015. I'll get the message that no driver is installed and that they are not connected to the network. One is an HP Officejet 8600 all-in-one & the other is an HP Envy 100 D410. I have had these printer a fairly long time with no problems. Now I have to go to the HP site & reinstall the drivers every day & then run the installation process again. I use their IP addresses when installing them. Does anyone know what the cause of this would be? Is there a fix for it.

    Have you used the disc that came with both printers.
    If not then run them to put the software onto your computer/laptop
    Then connect them when advised
    Once installed you should then be able to get the drivers for them.
    I have an HP Envy all in one Printer and have had no trouble with it at all.

    If you are installing your printer via an IP address then you may find the IP address for the printer is changing every day. You may need to ensure that the Printer is given a static IP address to avoid this problem. Having said that my own wireless printer seems to work OK without needing a static IP address so I'm not confident this is the answer.

    I have a HP 8620e connect to Win10 and installed it using the HP software from their website.

    But ... I have a static IP address assigned and perhaps that's why I don't have the reinstall problem.

    I used the disks to install them on the laptop & the desktop then updated the drivers online through HP. I have a static IP address for both printers. They have always remained the same. Any other suggestions please?
