@Dannyjames67, Welcome to the HP Support Community!
You may connect the printer and the phone wirelessly.
Restore network settings to default settings
● Press and hold the Wireless button and the Cancel button from the printer control panel together for three seconds.
Use WPS to connect the printer to your wireless network.
Locate the WPS button on your router, but do not press it yet.
If your router does not support WPS, skip to the next step to connect the printer with the HP Smart app.
Turn on the printer. If the printer is in sleep mode, press the Cancel button on the control panel.
On the printer control panel, press and hold the Wireless button for at least 3 seconds or until the wireless light starts to flash.
On the router, press and hold the WPS button for 3 to 5 seconds or until it shows that the WPS connection process has started.
NOTE: The printer stops searching for a WPS connection two minutes after the wireless button is pressed. If you were unable to press the WPS button within that timeframe, attempt these steps again.
Once the printer connects to the wireless network, the blue Wireless light on the control panel turns on solid.
- Make sure the printer and the mobile are connected to the same wireless network.
- This printer supports only 2.4GHz network.
If you do not have access to a wireless router, you may connect these devices via Wifi-Direct
Refer to this document to know how.
Note: there will be no Internet access while using Wifi-Direct on your phone.
Let me know how this goes.
