Wireless connectivity

@RSSS2019, Welcome to HP Support Community!

 

To provide you with an accurate solution, I would like to know the following:

  • Which printer are you using?
  • Was it previously connected to any network?

Meanwhile, you can try the following steps:

 

Connect a printer with a touchscreen control panel

Access the Wireless Setup Wizard through the printer control panel to establish a wireless connection between your printer and network.

  1. From the home screen of your printer control panel, touch the Wireless icon 

  2. Touch the Setup icon 

  3. Touch Restore Network Defaults or Restore Network Settings, and then touch Yes to confirm your selection.

  4. After the default network settings are restored, touch the back arrow, touch Wireless Settings, and then touch Wireless Setup Wizard.

    The printer searches for available networks.

  5. Touch the name of your wireless network.

  6. If your wireless network does not display in the list of wireless networks, touch Enter New Network Name, and then type the name of your wireless network.

  7. Type the WEP or WPA key (network password), and then touch Done.

    If you do not know your network password, go to Find Your Wireless WEP, WPA, WPA2 Password.

    Once the printer connects to the wireless network, the blue Wireless light on the control panel turns on solid.

Connect a printer that does not have a touchscreen control panel

 

Connect the printer with WPS

Use WPS to connect the printer to your wireless network.

  1. 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.

  2. Turn on the printer. If the printer is in sleep mode, press the Cancel button on the control panel.

  3. On the printer control panel, press and hold the Wireless button  for at least 3 seconds or until the wireless light starts to flash.

  4. 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.

    Once the printer connects to the wireless network, the blue Wireless light on the control panel turns on solid.

For additional methods to connect the printer to the network, refer to this document.

 

Let me know if this helps.

Cheers 🙂
