No Wi-Fi this month still need to print

HP Recommended
Android 8.0 Oreo and older

I'm using instant ink and I've been able to print from my phone without having MiFi in my house for a few days and now all the sudden my Wi-Fi light is on and it keeps telling me to connect and I know that I need a connection to use the Instinct what I'm wondering is if I go by regular working then can I print or how do I make my printer connect to my hotspot

@Cecilieryan67, Welcome to the HP Support Community!


If you are using HP Instant Ink cartridges, the printer has to be connected to the Internet.

If you are using regular ink cartridges, you need not connect the printer to the Internet. If you do not have access to wifi, connect the phone and the printer via Wifi direct.


Refer to this document to know how.


Let me know how this goes.
