what's the default password to the Officejet 4630 wifi network?

HP Recommended
officejet 4630
Microsoft Windows 7 (64-bit)

I'm trying to connect to it with my windows laptop via wifi and I find the "HP-print-Officejet-50 4630" network, click to connect, it asks for a password and I've tried 12345678, 11111111 and nothing.  Might I need no more than 6? How does this work?

Hi @juntjoo76,

 

I'd like to help!

 

To connect the printer via Wi-Fi direct, the default password would be found on the information page.

 

Follow the steps to find the password-

 

1. From the Home screen on the printer display, select Wireless Direct, and then press OK.

2. In the Wireless Direct menu, select Wireless Direct, and then press OK.

3. Using the buttons to the right, select On without Security, and then press OK. connect to the printer.

4. Press the button next to Display Name to display the wireless direct name.

5. If you have enabled security, press the button next to Display Password to display the wireless direct password.

 
Wi-Fi direct is a method that connects your printer directly to your phone or computer using default or an assigned password, the drawback of this type of connection is that you will not be able to access the internet and print at the same time.  

 

Hope this helps! Keep me posted.
