WiFi direct won't connect automatically

HP Recommended
Officeet Pro 7740
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Every time my computer goes sleep I lose the Wifi Direct connection to my OfficeJet Pro 7740. To and insult, right next to the "Connect" button I must click, the "Connect Automatically" box is checked.

@KitR, Welcome to HP Support Community!

 

Follow the steps below to edit the WiFi Direct settings-

 

  • Connect your computer or mobile device to the printer with Wi-Fi Direct.
  • In an Internet browser address bar, type 192.168.223.1, and then press the Enter key or click or tap the Search icon.
  • If a website security certificate displays, click Continue to open the EWS.
  • Click or tap Network, click Wi-Fi Direct, and then click or tap Status.
  • On the Wi-Fi Direct Status screen, click or tap Edit Settings to make any changes, and then click or tap Apply.

 

Hope this helps! Keep me posted.

Thank you for your reply TEJ1602.  However, for the next couple of weeks I will be working from home and will not have access to the referenced printer.  I will try your suggestion when we return to our offices.
