Trying to connect new Asus Chromebook to my HP Deskjet 3722 printer by wifi direct from the HP Smart app. It locates the wifi direct printer but when I try to connect it says it is out of range, I am in same room with it.

@cholc Here's all you need to know about printing from Chromebook,

(Although, if it's Wifi direct you are interested in: click here for details)


Set up an HP printer with a Chromebook for a wireless or wired connection.


To scan documents and photos with an HP printer, go to HP Printers - How to Scan (Chromebooks).

Step 1: Add the printer to the Chromebook

Connect the printer to your Chromebook with a wireless or USB cable connection to complete the setup. No drivers or apps are required to set up your printer.

  1. Update the Chromebook to the most current version of Chrome OS.

  2. Make sure the printer is turned on, ink cartridges are installed, and plain paper is loaded in the main tray.

  3. Connect the printer USB cable to the Chromebook, or for wireless printing, place the printer close to the Chromebook and within range of the Wi-Fi router, and then do the following to connect the printer to the local Wi-Fi network.

    • Printers with a touchscreen control panel: On the printer, select the Setup, Network, or Wireless menu, select Wireless Setup Wizard, and then follow the instructions to connect the printer to your network.


      If you need your network name (SSID) and password, go to Finding Your Wireless Password.

    • Printers without a touchscreen control panel: Press and hold the Wireless  button for five seconds. For Tango printers, press and hold the Wireless button and the Power button on the rear of the printer for five seconds. Within two minutes, press and hold the WPS button (Wi-Fi Protected Setup) on the router until the connection process begins. The Wireless light or blue bar on the printer stops flashing when the connection completes.

  4. On the Chromebook, click the clock in the bottom right corner, and then click the Settings icon .

  5. Scroll to the bottom of the screen and click Advanced.

  6. Scroll to the Printing section, click Printers, and then click Add Printer.

    • If your printer displays, click it, and then click Add.

    • If your printer does not display, click Add Manually, and then follow the instructions to add the printer. Go to Chromebook Help - Set up your printer (in English) for more information.
