Welcome to the HP Support Community. I'd be happy to assist you.
Do you get any errors while trying to connect the printer to the network?
Are you trying to connect the printer to a guest/public network? It may not work in this case.
Connect it to a private network.
I understand you are not able to connect the printer to a wireless network. Let us try these steps:
Print a wireless test report and check if the 'Wireless ON and wireless working' say pass. By this, we can conclude that the wireless radio in the printer is working fine.
Restart the wireless router, the printer, and the PC
On the printer screen, go to Setup > Network > Restore network settings
Go back to Network > Wireless > Wireless setup wizard > Select your network and enter the password.
Make sure the printer and the PC are connected to the same wireless network.
This printer supports only 2.4GHz network. So, the PC should be on the 2.4GHz network.
If you have a Dual-band router and both 2.4GHz and 5GHz networks share the same name/SSID, the printer will not be able to connect to the network. In this case, contact your Internet service provider to assign different names to both the networks.
If the issue persists, try connecting the device via wifi-direct
