How to connect to wireless printer with WPA2 Enterprise network please???

HP Recommended
DeskJet 3700
macOS 10.12 Sierra

I purchased a wireless Deskjet 3700  printer for my work at university today and I followed the instructions; I went to 123.hp.com/setup, dowloaded HP Easy Start ('Easy'? Ha ha) and followed the instructions on there until it came to joining to a network. Whenever I tried to join the printer to the network (eduroam) something would come up saying that I can't connect to a 'WPA2 Enterprise' network or something!! What does this mean and how can I connect my macbook air to the printer please?? Thank you!

Hi

 

The WPA2 is the encrypted Network password that the Uni is using.

 

iOS in Apple may not support that level of enterprise encryption.

 

So to connect to the network you need the SSID, like mine is WhiffyOne and then a stinker of a password to secure it.

 

In W10 it looks like this..

 

C:\WINDOWS\system32>netsh wlan show profile name=TLos key=clear

Profile WhiffyOne on interface WiFi:
