Printer set up - wireless indicator light does not flash

HP Recommended
HP ENVY Pro 6458
Microsoft Windows 10 (32-bit)

Why would it be that when I try to set up my new printer I can't get past step #2 which is to make sure that the wireless light is either steady or blinking.  I could only get a flash of light and then nothing.  


Skipping that step does not work.  Thank  you for any suggestions.  It's been a long day.

Welcome to the HP Support Community.


Let's reset the network settings on the Printer: On the back of the printer, press and hold the Wireless button for at least three seconds.


Once done, then try setting it up again.


Let me know if this helps.
