How to connect to wifi

HP Recommended
macOS 10.12 Sierra

Got a new router and cannot connect my printer to the new wifi.  Do not have a USB cable to computer to use.  Router does not have a WPS button.  There is no Setup Wizard in my printer options. Cannot find my printer password.  How do I find my printer wifi password (not my wifi/router password)?  How can I connect to the wifi?????

@Iisfrustrated, Welcome to the HP Support Community!


Do you want the password for the printer's wifi-direct?

The default password would be 12345678. if it is changed, print a Network Summary page to find the password.

  1. On the printer control panel, press the Setup button .

  2. Press the right arrow  to scroll to Reports, and then press OK.

  3. Press the right arrow  to scroll to Network Summary, and then press OK.

For more info on wifi-direct, refer to - Printing with Wi-Fi Direct


You may connect the MAC and the printer using wifi-direct and then access the EWS page of the printer using > Go to Network > Wireless setup wizard


Hope this helps! Keep me posted.
