Connecting printer without screen to WiFi from a phone

HP Recommended
HP laser jet 1102w
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

How can I connect my printer to my password protected WiFi? I’m unable to remove the password. The printer has no touch screen, only an X button and a connect button, in addition to power button. The WiFi is not from a router but from a cell phone hot spot. Is this possible? Thanks!

@Ssommers14 Here's all you need to know & do:

  1. Printers without a touchscreen control panel:

    1. On the printer, press and hold the Wireless button  for five seconds or until the light starts blinking. For Tango printers, press the Wireless button and the Power button on the rear of the printer until the blue bar flashes.

    2. Within two minutes, press and hold the Wi-Fi Protected Setup (WPS) button on the router until the connection process begins. The light on the printer stops flashing when the connection completes.

      If your router does not have a WPS button, continue with these steps.

    3. Download and install the HP Smart app from 123.hp.com (Android, iOS), HP Smart - Microsoft Store (in English), or from HP Smart - Mac App Store (in English).

    4. Prepare the printer for a wireless network connection.

       

      For HP Laser printers without a touchscreen: Press and hold the Wireless button until the Attention light blinks. The printer might restart.

       

    5. Within two hours, follow the guided steps in the HP Smart app to add the printer and set up the wireless connection.

      NOTE: 

      If the printer does not connect, go to Troubleshoot a Wi-Fi Printer Connection.
