HP Photosmart 5520 Wireless Direct access control

How do I manually set the password on an HP photosmart 5520 printer for "wireless direct" connection (as versus using the printer-generated password number)?  The printer screen says this must be done via the EWS (Embedded Web Server), but I can't find anything in the online Printer Settings menus that provides this functionality...

I found the answer - under EWS in the "Printer Assistant" screen launched from the desktop icon...

When I ask for a print operation, I get the message "No air printer found", even though I have a good wireless connection?
