Also, Change your local wireless network connection to the printer's HP wireless direct connection to print or scan from your computer.

   NOTE:

The HP wireless direct connection is for printer use only. When you change the connection from your local network to your printer's HP wireless direct connection, you must reconnect to your local network after printing to access the Internet.
