wifi direct and page counts

I am unable to connect to my local wifi.  As a workaround, I want to try wifi direct.  Will my instant ink page counts update using only wifi direct?

@j2_12, Welcome to HP Support Community!


No, the WiFi-Direct connection cannot help in recording the page counts or ink levels. The printer has to be connected to a proper network for the Instant Ink subscription to be active and for the printer to be able to print.


To avoid any printing issues or disconnection, connect the printer to a network.


I hope that answers your concern adequately. Let me know!
