HP 3630
Microsoft Windows 7 (64-bit)

I have just bought a HP 3630 printer, which is connected to my computer via a USB cable. It is printing correctly.

I don't need the wireless and the light is switched off - in spite of this, the printer is appearing on the Network of my whole building. How can I disable the wireless for good? As I have mentioned, I have read the manual and the wireless light is off. Thanks

YOu have Wi-Fi diesct turned on in the printer.  You need to turn it off.

 

From reading the User Guide... page 71.

 

To turn Wi-Fi Direct on or off
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 ( ) to print a printer information page.


NOTE: When you turn on Wi-Fi Direct the first time, the printer automatically prints a Wi-Fi Direct
guide. The guide provides instructions about how to use Wi-Fi Direct. After that, you can press the Wi-Fi
Direct button ( ) and the Information button ( ) together to print the Wi-Fi Direct guide. The
guide may not be available in all languages.


● When Wi-Fi Direct is turned off, the Wi-Fi Direct light is off.


● For more information about the Wi-Fi Direct light status, see Control panel lights and display icons
status on page 7.
