@ETap2, Welcome to HP Support Community!


I understand you are trying to connect the printer without a router. In this scenario, you can use your mobile phone as a hotspot but when you do this, your mobile will act as a router.

In this scenario, you will no longer be able to print, however, you can connect another device to the same network, and then you can try to print from that device.


Or, you can also use the WiFi Direct option to print from. Refer to the document HP Printers - Printing with Wi-Fi Direct for help.


I hope that answers your concern adequately. Let me know!
