Rated 5 out of 5 by dist from I bought this printer about a month ago and I am satisfied.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Bagger from Plusses & minuses I've had this printer for about a month and it functions pretty much like it's supposed to. Print speed and quality is excellent, however there aren't as many reduction options as enlargement, the paper tray only holds a half ream of paper (why was that a good idea?) and platen will not accommodate legal-size paper.

Rated 1 out of 5 by TerryTrucks from Not impressed so far I would not recommend this model. We have had nothing but issues. Scanning is a hit and miss endeavor, pages do not feed properly and continuously get stuck. Secretary has to prompt the scan from the machine itself and that is beyond frustrating. Plus the screen is so small on the control pad, it’s cumbersome. All in all, not as user friendly as we would like.

I dont have wireless connection settings. What am I supposed to do to get connected to the wifi.

Asked by: Cheeks
Hello. Thanks for your question. This HP LaserJet Pro M426fdn printer does not have a wireless connection. You can connect the printer to your wireless network with the Ethernet cable.

I have a LaserJet Pro MFP M426fdn printer and need to physically connect it to 2 computers so I do not have to change the cords when I print. Do you have a hub or whatever you call it so that I can physically connect both cords to the printer?

Asked by: Nanleigh
HP does not offer hubs at this time. Most any hub or router with ethernet ports will be compatible, however. Thanks for shopping at HP!

The printer temperature goes up when printing about 50-100 pages and from there encounters paper Jam needs to let the printer cool down for 10-15 minutes before it prints normally otherwise it keeps jamming the paper

I own this machine. I had an incoming fax of 335 pages. However, I only received 255 of the 335. It quit printing on page 255 but showed that it received all 335 pages. How can I find and print the remaining 79-80 pages that didn't print?
