No network, no problem

If you don't have access to a wireless network or you don't have a wireless router, you may still be able to print from your mobile device. HP wireless direct is a feature available on many HP printers that lets you establish a secure connection directly from your mobile device to your printer.

  • How it works

    Printing with HP wireless direct is simple and secure, all you have to do is establish a connection with the printer and you're ready to print.

    • Step 1

      Check for wireless direct support

      Check your printer's wireless settings menu.
      If you do not see wireless direct in this menu, the printer does not support it.

    • Step 2

      Turn on wireless direct

      From your printer's control panel, select the wireless button to ensure wireless direct is turned on.

    • Step 3

      Discover the printer

      From your mobile device, turn on WiFi and search for wireless networks. Select the printer, which will show up as 'HP-Print-model-name' as shown on your printer's control panel.

Now that you have a wireless direct connection, you're ready to print.
