Wireless direct Printers

Wireless direct | Wireless Printing Center

Perform the following steps to connect your mobile device or computer:

  1. Turn on HP wireless direct or Wi-Fi Direct from the printer’s control panel.
  2. On your mobile device or computer, ensure the Wi-Fi radio is on and then connect to HP wireless direct or Wi-Fi Direct the same way you would for any other wireless network. Note that the name format used by HP wireless direct and Wi-Fi Direct are different. Reference the table above.
  3. If you turned HP wireless direct on with security, supply the WPA2 password when prompted by your mobile device or computer. Note that Wi-Fi Direct always uses a WPA2 passphrase and cannot be turned on without WPA2 security.
  4. If you haven’t done so, install the printer software for your computer. Choose “Wireless” for the connectivity option from the printer software UI. For mobile devices, you’ll need to install the latest version of the HP printer plug-in application.

Use case 1: If you have already connected the printer over a network connection, have installed the printer software on your computer, and have been using the printer over the network, then do the following to print when connected to HP wireless direct or Wi-Fi Direct.

  1. Connect the computer to the HP wireless direct or Wi-Fi Direct connection as previously described.
  2. You can use the printer the same way you did over the network connection. No additional software installation is required. The printer can remain connected to your home network as well. However, your computer can only be connected to the printer OR your home network, not both at the same time.

Use case 2: If you have previously installed and use the printer with a USB cable or chose the “Connect Later” option from the software during installation, then do the following to use the printer over the HP wireless direct or Wi-Fi Direct connection.

  1. Configure the settings from the printer software.
    • Windows XP, Windows Vista or Windows 7:

      Start -> Programs -> HP -> {your printer model} -> Printer Setup & Software.

    • Windows 8 or 8.1:
      • Launch the Printer Software from the Start screen (icon for the printer model name) or from the tile named for your printer.
      • Select (click or touch) Utilities on the top of the Printer Software screen
      • Select Printer Setup & Software
      • Select Connect a new printer
  2. Mac OS X:

    Open Finder and go to Applications -> HP -> {your printer model} -> Printer Setup & Software.

  3. You can also insert the printer software CD which will provide the Welcome Back screen or get the Full Function software from
  4. Click “Connect new printer”.

    Important: Do not select “Convert a USB connected printer to wireless”.

  5. In the Connection Options screen, select Wireless, and then click Next.
  6. Select the printer from the printer’s detected screen when it is shown, and then complete the software installation.

After setting up the connection, you will see two printer icons in the printer’s folder for the HP printer. The printer icon labeled “Network” is the printer driver installed for HP wireless direct or Wi-Fi Direct. If you no longer want to print using a USB cable connection, you can delete the HP printer icon without the “Network” label.

Use case 3: If you have already installed the printer through the HP wireless direct or Wi-Fi Direct connection, have installed the printer software, and you want to use the printer over a wireless network with a wireless router.

  1. First, connect your computer to the wireless network you want to connect the printer to.
  2. Windows XP, Windows Vista or Windows 7:

    Start -> Programs -> HP -> {your printer model} -> Printer Setup & Software. Windows 8:>
