About cookies
The embedded Web server (EWS) places very small text files (cookies) on your hard drive when you
are browsing. These files let the EWS recognize your computer the next time you visit. For example,
if you have configured the EWS language, a cookie helps remember which language you have
selected so that the next time you access the EWS, the pages are displayed in that language. Some
cookies (such as the cookie that stores customer-specific preferences) are stored on the computer
until you clear them manually. You can configure your browser to accept all cookies, or you can configure it to alert you every time a cookie is offered, which allows you to decide which cookies to accept or refuse. You can also use your browser to remove unwanted cookies.
Depending on your printer, if you disable cookies, you also disable one or more of the following
features:
  • Using some setup wizards
  • Remembering the EWS browser language setting
  • Personalizing the EWS Home page

WPS (Wi-Fi Protected Setup) HP OfficeJet Pro 8630

  1. WPS has two modes to connect devices together over a wireless connection. One is called “pushbutton” and the other is called “PIN”. Pushbutton is by far the easiest method. We will describe how to connect using the WPS pushbutton method, but not the PIN method.
  2. For instructions on starting WPS on your printer consult your printer’s manual. However there are some conditions that need to be met in order to use WPS pushbutton mode:
  3. Both your printer and wireless router must support WPS pushbutton mode. Consult your printer and wireless router manuals. The wireless router must have a physical WPS pushbutton available. Your network must use WPA or WPA2 security. Most WPS wireless routers will not connect using the WPS method if WEP or no security is used.Most WPS wireless routers will not connect using the WPS method if you are using the manufacturer’s default for the network name and no security.
  4. To connect your wireless printer to your wireless router using WPS. Start the WPS pushbutton mode on your printer. For instructions on starting WPS on your printer, consult your printer’s manual. Within 2 minutes, press the WPS button on your router.
