Hi @Stuckmamma


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


Due to the current global COVID-19 situation, we're seeing an influx of customers coming in for support. We appreciate your patience.


To better assist you - 


 I would like to know, is your router set to work on 2.4 GHz network or 5 GHz network band?

Is your printer connected to a home network or public network?


While you respond to that, please try the steps below to connect your printer to the network.


--->On the printer control panel, press the Wi-Fi Direct button.
---> When Wi-Fi Direct is turned on, the Wi-Fi Direct light is on steady. 
--->To find the Wi-Fi Direct name and password, press the Information button (i) to print a printer information page.
--->On your computer or phone go to wifi and connect it to your printer 
--->Select your printer with DIRECT in the name from the list of available networks (example: DIRECT-74-HP Deskjet3700).
--->Select the Wi-Fi Direct printer signal in Wi-Fi settings 
--->If prompted for a password, type 12345678. This is the default password.
--->Now open a browser and type
--->you will be able to access the printer's EWS page 
--->on the page, you will find network - click on it 
--->go to wireless and select wireless setup wizard
--->now select the network that you want your printer to connect to and type in the password 
--->thewireless blue light will stop blinking once the printer is connected 
--->then connect your phone back to your network


And then try and print  Enrolling in HP Instant Ink
