Trying to use WIFI Direct managed to enter WPS PIN once, failed to print, now cannot add printer

Hello,

 

I've been trying to set up WiFi Direct. I did manage to enter the WPS PIN Once. PC said successful but would not print.

 

I tried to go through the process again but now "Add Printer" does not bring up "Show Direct Printers"

 

I have uninstalled and reinstalled the printer, cleared cookies, restarted PC and printer until I'm blue in the face.

 

Been at this for 4 days.

Are there real people in HP anywhere please?

 

Thanks

For WiFI direct you do not use WPS.

From your PC connect to the WiFi named DIRECT"printer name" then you will be on the Printers WiFi network.

Add the printer and print away.

From there you can put 192.168.223.1 in to your browser URL and configure the printer.

Thank you.

 

A HP Employee bod sent me a document yesterday which tells me to use this WPS.

 

Windows 10, Add Printer, click "Show Direct Printer" Select "DIRECT Printer name" - the WPS PIN window pops up, 90 seconds to enter it, had to have 3 tries, finally did get it in. PC states successful - print failed.

 

Tried to go through the process again but now lost "From your PC connect to the WiFi named DIRECT"printer name" - I do not see this "DIRECT" 

 

How do I get that back to enter the IP address you quote below please?

 

Thanks
