Hp deskjet 3636 printer

I recently got rid of my wireless internet service at my home because it is cheaper to just use my mobile hotspot.   I am enrolled in hp instant ink and I wanted to know if I could connect my printer to my mobile hotspot.  If so, Please help with directions!  Thanks!

Hi! @Barkerx4, Thank you for visiting the HP Forums! A great place where you can find solutions for your issues with help from the community!

 

I understand you have issues connecting your printer to the mobile hotspot.

 

Don't worry I will try to help you out.

 

Did you make any software or hardware changes on your PC?

 

As you mentioned you have issues connecting your printer to the mobile hotspot.

 

Mobile hotspot does not have much bandwidth to support printer communication, So it is not recommended to connect your printer using the mobile hotspot.

 

Please try few steps mentioned below.

1. Go to control panel.

2. Go to network and the internet.

3. Go to network connections.

4. In related settings, go to "Change adapter options"

5. Right click on "wireless network connection" and go to properties.

6. Click "Configure and then Advance

7. In properties, "802.11n Preamble", selected, select value "mixed mode" And click ok and click done

 

Also, you can print using wireless direct.

 

Refer this article to know more information about printing using wireless direct.

 

 

If the solution provided worked for you, please mark accepted solution for this post.

 

Hope this answers your query!

Have a great day! 🙂
