Print from Laptop via Mobile Phone WiFi

HP Recommended

I have an HP Envy 4527, a laptop computer, and a smartphone. I do not have a landline connection to the Internet, so not the usual modem/router either.


I use my smartphone to connect to the Internet, and the phone's inbuilt WiFi facility (Inbuilt router?) to connect my laptop to the Interent, by "tethering".


What are the steps I need to take to connect my printer so that I can print Excel spreadsheets from my laptop, via the phone WiFi?

Tethering provides internet access, not local area connectivity which is required for printing.


You may use Wi-fi Direct to connect the computer to your printer without a router, then install the HP Software to print:
