Hi @cnyman


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


A hotspot connection is not recommended. I'd suggest you connect the printer using the Wi-Fi Direct feature. With Wi-Fi Direct, you can print wirelessly from a computer, smart phone, tablet, or other wireless-capable device—without connecting to an existing wireless network.


Please refer to page# 72 from the User Manual for steps to setup Wi-Fi Direct.  


Hope this helps! Keep me posted.
