I got a new HP Photosmart C4580 all-in-one printer.  It is similar to my last model C6280.  The C6280 model came with an ethernet jack in the back of the printer which i attached to my router via ethernet cable.  This made is so it was on the same network as my internet.  With this new model C4580, it did not come with an ethernet jack.  It just has a USB jack.  I could attach the USB jack to my desktop pc, but for my laptop pcs, I need it to be wireless.  I found out a way I could do it, but it is very annoying and time consuming.  The printer has it's own network named HPsetup.  If I change from my wireless internet connection to this HPsetup connection and then print, it works.  But I have to then change back to my wireless internet and this is very annoying  to be switching all the time.  How would I go about installing the printer onto my Wireless Internet Connection instead of it having it's own seperate connection?  Some people have suggested putting the printer's MAC address and IP address or something into my router, but I am very much a beginner when it comes to enabling ports and such on my Router. Please help!
