Connecting laptop to computer

HP Recommended
OfficeJet Pro 9010 series all-in-one printer
Chrome OS

I bought a new laptop which runs on Chrome OS (a source of where my frustration starts because everything is so different).  My first issue: I cannot login in to HP Smart.  After submitting my user name and password, all I get is THANKS FOR YOUR PATIENCE and the buffering circle.  Even after waiting 10 minutes, no change. I know I'm connected to the internet because other websites open.  So I created another HP Smart account and the same thing happened.  Ideas?


In the old days, I could just connect the printer to the laptop and that would be it.  But, now I need WiFi?  Why?  And the WiFi I have access to is a public one provided by my apartment complex which I read somewhere that I needed a private WiFi......  Anyway, I need help setting up my printer to print from my laptop.  HELP!
