HP Printers - Connecting an HP Printer Using Wi-Fi Protected Setup (WPS)

This document is for HP wireless printers.
Quickly connect an HP printer to your local wireless network using the Wi-Fi Protected Setup (WPS) push button method. You do not need the network name and password to connect the printer using WPS.
note:
If a Enter the WPS PIN for your printer message displays when setting up a printer, click Cancel in the window. This message is related to the printer's Wi-Fi Direct connection feature.

Connecting the printer to a wireless network with WPS

Complete the network connection by putting the printer and the router in WPS setup mode. Once connected, install the HP software to wirelessly connect the printer to your computer or mobile device.
note:
Your network must use Wi-Fi Protected Access (WPA or WPA2) security, and your router must support WPS. Google, eero, Luma, and Plume are some router brands that might not support WPS.
  1. Make sure your router has a WPS button or a button with the WPS icon .
    • If the router has a WPS button, do not press the button yet. Continue to the next step.
    • If the router does not have a WPS button, skip to the frequently asked questions in this document for options.
  2. Place the printer within range of the Wi-Fi router signal.
  3. Put the printer in WPS connection mode.
    • Printers with a touchscreen control panel: Open the Setup, Network, or Wireless settings menu, select Wi-Fi Protected Setup, select Push Button, and then select Start.
    • Printers without a touchscreen control panel: Press and hold the Wireless button for five seconds until the wireless light flashes. For Tango printers, press and hold the Wireless button and the Power button on the rear of the printer for five seconds until the blue bar flashes.
  4. Within two minutes, press and hold the WPS button on the router for three to five seconds, or until the connection process begins.
  5. Return to the printer and check the status of the wireless light or bar.
    • If the light or blue bar stops flashing, the printer successfully connected to the network. Continue to the next step.
    • If the light is still flashing or turned off, the connection failed. Move the printer closer to the router, and then repeat these steps. If the connection still fails, continue to the frequently asked questions in this document.
  6. Make sure your computer or mobile device is on the same local wireless network you connected the printer to.
  7. Go to 123.hp.com and follow the instructions to install the software and set up the wireless connection. For Chromebooks, go to Printing from a Chromebook.
