HP Jetdirect 2800w NFC/Wireless Direct Accessory - How to print using HP near field communication (NFC)

After installing the HP Jetdirect 2800w NFC & Wireless Direct Accessory, use the following steps to verify that your HP printer is ready to print using HP NFC.
  1. Verify that the printer is in the Ready state.
  2. To confirm that NFC and HP wireless direct printing are enabled on your printer, print a configuration page from the control panel. If a page titled Wireless is included, NFC and HP wireless direct printing are enabled.
  3. Ensure that the latest version of HP ePrint Software (version 4.5 or newer) is installed on your mobile device. If you need to update:
    1. From the HP ePrint Software page, click Download software.
    2. Select your operating system, and then click Download from the Software - ePrint table.
    3. Save the file to your system. Then, double-click the file and follow the instructions.
  4. From a mobile device or a computer, verify that wireless capability is enabled (the Wi-Fi radio is on). This control is typically found in the Settings menu.
    Disable existing wireless connections (WLAN or Internet).
    When printing, closely align (within 1 inch (2.5 mm)) or touch the NFC icon of the mobile device and the NFC icon of the HP Jetdirect 2800w NFC & Wireless Direct Accessory. Hold the mobile device and the accessory together for at least one full second to ensure a connection.
    The HP ePrint Software displays the NFC tab or tile if the NFC antennas are correctly positioned and the compatible NFC hardware is installed and enabled in the mobile device.
