Wireless..
Well in oneway yes, it has wireless capability either from a laptop or receiving print via web, however your machine hastobe linked to the web and your machine first.
Second "wireless" it does not have its own power supply, so you have to connect this to a 110 source..

If you have an HP phone or iPhone/iPod touch/iPad, then you can print directly to this printer. This printer has something called HP ePrint where the printer has an email address and it looks for print jobs you send to is, such as an email from your mobile phone with a picture attached, or the text of the email.

answer 1
Yes, but when you insert the CD that comes with the printer into your computer to load the printer driver it will tell you it is not compatible with windows 8. That is because windows eight was not out when this particular printer was manufactured so the CD does not have the driver for the windows 8 operating system on it. That’s no problem as you can go to the HP website and simply download the driver for the 3056A printer free of charge. It will take only a few minutes and works perfectly.

Have they fixed the problem with the Bordeless printing and paper printing being cut off??

This problem goes from one HP All in One printers to every one I upgrade. Are they EVER going to be able to FIX this problem?? What could be such a big problem only to HP PRINTERS?? I DON'T UNDERSTAND THIS AT ALL. ALSO WHAT DOES "WORKING ON IT" MEAN? AS FAR AS "TIME"?

This probably will not change, as it is more of a design effect. The paper handling system will not print on the full page because it needs to push the sheet out of the printer and maintain alignment until then. There are more expensive printers out there that will not have this, but you may have to look at a more expensive "Photo" quality printer.
