HP printers are world-renowned for offering advanced printing solutions along with the exceptional features. From LaserJets, InkJets to All-in-one, the company offers a comprehensive array of printers to meet the diverse requirements of both consumers and businesses. With these printers, you can print, fax, scan, copy or even a photograph with superior print quality. While purchasing any of the HP printers, all you need to do is check the minimum system requirements needed to avoid any kind of compatibility issues.
All the HP printers are capable of printing the documents using a wireless router. However, if you do not have a wireless router and still want to print the documents wirelessly, simply set up a peer-to-peer wireless network or ad-hoc network. For this, follow these steps:
- Reset your printer settings to its factory default (if it is connected to your home wireless network). To do this, check your printer’s manual.
- After doing this make sure that the printer’s wireless in ON (for which, the blue light should be illuminated on the front display of the printer). If it is not, simply check your printer’s manual and follow the instructions to turn the light on
- Search for a local wireless or Wi-Fi network with the name starting with HP. To search, simply click on the Wi-Fi icon available in the bottom right corner in the taskbar. However, searching for the Wi-Fi may be different depending on the computer system you are using. If you are unable to search the wireless network, go through these steps:
- Reset the printer to its default settings
- Enable ad-hoc or peer-to-peer networking in your device
- Else contact HP printer toll-free number and get an instant help from a technician
- Now, connect to that wireless network with the name beginning with HP. You can simply install the software for your printer as the peer-to-peer network doesn’t require a wireless password
- Upon prompt during installation, choose “Through the Network, Network or Wireless”. The label for three options may vary depending on the software version. The software will detect your wireless printer automatically on the network
Connecting your printer to a wireless router is recommended only over a peer-to-peer or ad-hoc connection. It is considered to be highly reliable and more secure. While performing the aforementioned steps, if you are unable to do anything or experience an issue, pick up your phone and reach out for HP printer support number.
