Need HP Help....Built In Network is disabled

HP Office Pro 8600
macOS 10.14 Mojave

Please someone help.  Somehow my printers' built in network is disabled. I believe it happened when I was in HP Utility on the mac.  I've tried resetting to factory settings and printer is stil not recognized!! Totally messed up and frustrated.  I work from home and need my printer.

A warm welcome to HP Support Community!

I believe we can re-enable the network functions using the HP Utility. Let's try these steps:

1.) Connect the printer to Mac using a USB cable.

2.) On your Mac, click Finder, click Applications, click the Hewlett-Packard or HP folder, then double-click HP Utility.

3.) Click Device Administrations.


4.) Check the box near to Wireless or select Enable All.


Let me know how it goes!
