Need an Instant Ink program continuous Internet connection?

HP Recommended

I have an HP Office Jet Pro 6968


I have my printer USB connected. There is internet, but NOT wifi (we are not allowed to connect our printers to wifi)...


How can I make Instant Ink work? It should still work, correct? It says no USB cables, but I don't understand why not. Is there another way to 'hard wire' the printer?

Hi @TeacherKristen9


Welcome to the HP Support Community. 


For an Instant Ink program to work, the printer should be connected to the network. 


As you cannot connect the printer through a Wi-Fi network, try connecting it through a Wired (Ethernet) connection. To know more, refer to step# 1 and 2 from this document


Hope this helps! Let me know if you have any other questions.
