How do I set up a 4620 office jet on an airport network with only an iPad?

I only have an iPad and set up airport network no problem, but HP office jet 4620 printer won't connect without wps or computer. Any ideas?

Hi Mh54,

 

In your case, connect your iPad directly to the printer's AP.

1. From printer front panel, press Wireless>Wireless Settings>Restore Network Defaults>Yes.

2. From iPad(Settings>Network), connect to the printer's AP (HP-Setup-xx-Officejet 4620).

3. Once iPad is connected to the printer's AP, you will then be able to directly print from your iPad to the printer.

 

You can also perform Airprint on the iPad from the Photos menu in your iPad.

Please explain how to connect the I pad to the printers AP.
The cable I recieved with the printer does not fit anywhere on the I pad

Hi Neil1950,

 

You will be doing this wirelessly without the need for a cable. From the iPad Settings icon, click on Wi-Fi>Network>Select the printer's network to connect using the same steps listed above.

 

After your iPad is connected,

1. Open Safari in the iPad and enter 192.168.223.1in the addressbar and press enter.

2. Navigate to the WIreless Setup Wizard to setup your printer on your network.

3. Follow the steps to join your printer on the network.
