Laserjet wireless can't connect to Mac

HP Laserjet color MFP M175nw
macOS 10.14 Mojave

Hello,

My HP Laserjet color MFP M175nw cannot keep a connection with my Macbook Pro. I recently installed the driver update from July 2019, and that worked for one week and now it doesn't. I reset the printing system ALL the time but today, after doing this several times, and trying to connect this new driver, it's not working at all. Can anyone help?

Laserjet wireless can't connect to Mac

@alfiebb, Welcome to the HP Support Community!

  • How far is the printer located from the WiFi router?
  • Make sure the printer and the MAC are connected to the same wireless network. Either 2.4GHz or 5GHz

On the printer screen, go to Setup > Network setup > Restore defaults

 

Restart your network devices

  1. Turn off the Router, Printer, and the MAC/ mobile devices.
  2. Wait for 60 seconds.
  3. Turn on the Router first and wait for all the lights to stabilize.
  4. Turn on the printer and allow it to configure itself.
  5. Turn on the MAC/ mobile devices.

Connect the printer to your wireless network

On the printer screen, go to Setup > Network setup > Wireless

Refer to this document for more info.

 

Update the printer firmware

Try printing.

 

Let me know how this goes.

Thanks for this. I'll try next time. In the interim between my post and the answer, I uninstalled the HP software then reinstalled. Shut everything down, turned it on again, then reinstalled. And it is not working for the past 2 days. *I use wifi boosters* very close to the printer/laptop and this may be why this printer cannot keep the connection (other devices can manage it). HP could you PLEASE allow us to use an easy cable connection like the older days? It would really help!

Remove and add the printer using AirPrint drivers

 

Click the Apple menu, and then select System Preferences.

Depending on your operating system version, click Print & Fax, Print & Scan, or Printers & Scanners.

Click the name of your printer, click the Minus sign, and then delete the printer.

 

Select printer and click the minus sign

Click the Plus sign, and then click Add Printer or Scanner.

Click the Use or Print Using box, and then select AirPrint

 

Select AirPrint from the Use menu

 

Click Add to add the printer to the list.

Try to print.

 

Keep me posted for further assistance.
