how to print without wireless access on MFP M125nw

Product Name: MFP M125nw
Operating System: macOS 10.12 Sierra

I moved my MFP M125nw to a new place where I don not have internet.

I need to connect it with my macbook [which has xfinitiwifi pass] to print somehow. I have usb A-B cable but can't figure out set up on LCD panel or on laptop to make the printer talk to my macbook.
