Bluetooth Connectivity

HP Envy 5540
Mac OS X 10.11 El Capitan

I have set up my printer for my home wifi connection and it works OK when the signal is in range.

Where I want to site the printer, in my new flat, there is a poor internal wifi signal so I want to establish a Bluetooth connection between my computer (MacBook Pro) and the printer.

The manual does not mention Bluetooth anywhere and the settings on the printer for Wifi simply tell me I am set up!


1. How do I set up up Bluetooth?


2. I am on HP Instant print supply which needs wifi; can the printer be set up for Bluetooth and wifi connections to run concurrently?


Thank you.

Bluetooth Connectivity

Hi @SandyBradbrook


Welcome to the HP Forums!


It is a great way to engage, post questions and find resolutions by working with specialists in the HP community.


I reviewed your post and I understand that you want to know how to setup your printer using Bluetooth.


I’d love to help!


I checked the specification of your printer (HP Envy 5540) and I see that your printer doesn’t support Bluetooth. You need to setup the printer using a USB cable or using the wireless method.


Hope that answers your question and you have a good day ahead.
