HP Printers - Wireless Printing from a Laptop, Phone, or Tablet


Use this document to learn how to print wirelessly to an HP LaserJet, HP LaserJet Pro, HP LaserJet Enterprise, or HP PageWide Enterprise printer.
The solutions provided in this document might also be compatible with other printers such as Deskjet, Inkjet, Officejet, or Photosmart for which additional mobile apps or printing solutions might also be available. For mobile printing information applicable to these models, go to Mobile Printing Solutions Compatible with HP Printers.
If the printer supports it, you can print wirelessly with HP mobile printing solutions from a laptop or notebook, phone, or tablet directly to an HP printer. HP offers several mobile printing solutions to choose from depending on the printing environment -- home or business -- and the mobile device operating system including:
  • Android
  • Chrome
  • iOS
  • macOS
  • Windows

Ways to connect wirelessly

There are several ways to connect wirelessly from the mobile device to the printer depending on the printer capability and on the printer location.
Wi-Fi - Use the Wi-Fi capability on the laptop, phone, or tablet to print to a nearby printer connected to the same wireless network.
Wireless Direct or Wi-Fi Direct - Use to connect directly to the nearby printer as you would to a Wi-Fi network.7
Cloud / Internet (wireless connection via a different subnet) - Use to print to a printer on a different network or to a printer in a remote location.6 Some sample scenarios include:
  • A nearby printer when the mobile device is only connected using the phone/tablet network
  • A nearby printer when the mobile device is not connected to a local Wi-Fi or Wireless Direct network;
  • A remote printer in another location via a cloud connection; or
  • A nearby or remote printer on a different network (different subnet)
Near Field Communication (NFC) - Connect directly to the printer as you would to a Wi-Fi network using a phone or tablet. Discover and print by bringing the two NFC zones together. Printer must be NFC-capable and configured to print using NFC, and the NFC feature must be turned on the phone or tablet.
