How to connect to wifi without a home computer

HP Recommended
HD Deskjet 3050 All-in-one J610 Series
iOS

I no longer have a home computer. My husband and I both use our iPhones instead of a computer. I am needing to print out a shipping label and I still have my HP Deskjet 3050 All-in-One J610 series printer. Is it possible to connect to wifi using my phone to find the printer? Everything I’ve found suggests you have to have a router/computer to connect.

Hi @mtheivagt18

 

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

 

To better assist you - Is your router dual-band enabled i.e., both 2.4GHz and 5GHz? If yes, make sure the dual band has different SSIDs for 2.4G and 5G networks.

 

If the router has a WPS push button, please try these steps to connect -  

 

1) Press and hold the Wireless button on the printer for more than three seconds to start WPS push mode. The Wireless light starts blinking.

2) Press the WPS button on your router.

NOTE: THE MOMENT YOU PRESS THE WIRELESS BUTTON ON YOUR PRINTER, WITHIN 30 SECONDS YOU SHOULD PRESS THE WPS BUTTON ON THE ROUTER.

 

If this step is not successful, then we need to first connect the printer to a computer using a USB and then convert the wired connection to wireless as the printer does not have a control panel to enter the Wi-Fi password.

 

Please refer to this link for steps - HP Printers - Changing from a USB to a Wireless Connection

 

Hope this helps! Keep me posted.
