    Specs:
    iMac, 27-inch, Mid 2011 OS X 10.11.6 … iPhone 4S and iPad (3rd Gen) with iOS 9.3.5
    My Current Issues With Mavericks (opart 1)
    (Not sure if this should be in this forum or the "OS X - Operating System")

    I have Time Machine backups from former ML 10.8.5
    I installed Mavericks 10.9.2

    Issue:
    I cannot connect to HP Photosmart All-In-One C309g-m printer. This is connected via wi-fi to family's various Macs.

    System Preferences/Printers & Scaner - I do not see the printer (see Exhibit 1).

    When I click "+" I do have the printer in Bonjour. Clicking on the printer's name and then then clicking "Download & Install" gives me an error message (Exhibit 2).

    The printer is connected to the same wi-fi network as this iMac is.

    I tried downloading the driver from HP's website but it wants me to use Mavericks's System Preferences.

    Any help here?

    By the way, you didn't post the error message.
    I was putting in the images when you saw my post. Should be correct now. Hp's site says I need to use Mavericks's System preferences/Printers & Scanners. I saw nothing that outright downloads any drivers.

    Hang on to those original install discs like grim death! Using OS X.7 or later make a bootable USB thumb drive before running Installer!

    Software & driver downloads HP Photosmart Premium All-in-One Printer - C309g | HP® Support
    harry: The hyperlink you suggested only takes me back to where I have been before, and I get an error message (exhibit "a")

    I spent a *lot* of time researching this with many different "fixes" and "solution". Nothing working so far.

    I just tried connecting to it via its IP addy, did connect, but this just sits loading into the queue.

    Mayhap I should connect it via Ethernet to our Time Machine router or to one of our computers?

    If this configuration works, then cannot a wi-fi config work with the same driver?
