" The future has been locked by administrator"

HP Officejet PRo 8600

At&t just put new modem yesterday and now I cannot connect printer to the wifi.

I tried to reset to default and it says the future has been blocked by administrator.

Please advise how to fix this problem.


Thank you!

" The future has been locked by administrator"

Hi @ngheb0


Welcome to the HP Support Community. I'd be happy to assist you with the password. 


Please try restoring the network settings to defaults - 


Touch (right arrow), touch Setup, and then touch Network. Touch Restore Network Defaults, and then select Yes. A message appears stating that the network defaults have been restored.


If the issue still persists, I have sent you a private message with the steps to reset the printer. Check next to your profile Name, you should see a little blue envelope, please click on it.   


Hope this helps! Keep me posted.
