HP 3050 Deskjet Printer cannot connect wireless

I have been trying to set up my wireless HP 3050 Deskjet printer to my laptop to no avail.  I am using a 2200 MIFI Router.  I have followed the instructions (to my knowledge anyway) but am unable to connect without USB.  Can you help?

Are you trying to connect your printer to your laptop directly using ad hoc or are you trying to connect it directly to your mifi?

I am trying to connect from my laptop (without USB) connecting directly through the mifi.  Don't know what an adhoc is.  What am I doing wrong?

This should work. If you are setting it up with the hp software make sure the USB cable is not attached when you start the software and that your laptop is attached to the mifi when you start the software.
