Question: How to configure the HP LaserJet Pro  MFP M29w for static IP and SM via macOS 10.15

HP Recommended
LaserJet Pro MFP M29w
macOS 10.15 Catalina

Assigning static IP address settings for LaserJet Pro M29w that are currently blank

 

1. I would like to be able to be able to print online Internet documents from macOS 10.15 Catalina to wireless HP LaserJet Pro M29w while keeping wireless internet connection active.  In other words, I would like to have both the wireless internet connection and wireless LaserJet Pro M29w connected at the same time. Currently, using HP Print Direct, I print to the MFP M29w print queue and then click the wireless printer to allow it to connect and print which disconnects the wi-fi internet connection and then after printing I recheck the wi-fi internet connection to make it is active which disconnects MFP M29w from its wireless connection.

2. I believe I need to setup static IP settings on the MFP M29W or maybe a bluetooth connection. Currently, via the settings print out for the MFP M29W, the IP address, subnet mask, and default gateway fields are blank. I'm hoping that I can assign it simple static settings of IP address: 192.168.1.1 Subnet mask:255.255.255.0 Default Gateway: the address for the HotSpot internet connection.

 

3. Question: How can I configure the HP LaserJet Pro  MFP M29w so that it has an active wi-fi Internet connection and printer connection via macOS10.15 Catalina at the same time for online printing online documents.

Are you using a router supplied by your internet provider to connect. If so, you simply connect the printer and the computer to the same SSID (wireless identifier) and then you will be able to print and browse. 

 

Check the user guide here for information on configuring via MAC OS https://content.etilize.com/User-Manual/1050135681.pdf

Hi,

You mention you connect with WiFi Direct which is intended for use when there is no network access, do you have a home wireless network with internet access?

 

You would need to connect the printer you your home network (wireless router), then the Mac will access both the internet and the printer through your wireless network connection.

 

Please clarify if you have a wireless network in place, so I will guide you how to connect the printer accordingly.

Thank you vert much for the response! I have the Verizon Wireless Inernet Hot Spot (router's)  Primary Network Name(SSID), IP  address, and password, but I'm having issues being able to enter the information into the printer settings. When I try to access the wireless network and WiFI settings via the IP address for HP Embedded Web Server, the Safari web browser redirects me back to the general listings page and I'm not able to view or change wireless network and Wifi settings(it's some kind of feature to protect against IP level hacking access), so I'm trying to figure out how I can change the settings without adding another web browser.
