HP printers are some of the most popular printers in the world. HP printers have worked hard over time to make printing more accessible to consumers than ever before. Now available on the market are wireless HP printers that allow you to print from any wireless device. Isn’t that really convenient?
However, wireless HP printers require a proper connection to your Wi-Fi router, either at home or at the office. Besides setting up the connection, you also need a Wi-Fi password for your HP printer to take advantage of your HP’s wireless connection. In this article, you will learn how to find the Wi-Fi password for your HP printer.
How do I find the WIFI password for my HP printer?
By following the steps in the tutorial below, you can quickly set up the Wi-Fi password standard for your HP printer. However, to avoid interruptions when setting up the Wi-Fi password for your HP wireless printer, follow the procedures described.
If you have an HP printer with a digital touchscreen control panel, you must first tap the Wi-Fi Direct sign immediately.
If you want to turn the Wi-Fi Direct feature on or off, just tap on it. You can also change the connection method here.
There are two types of connection methods: one that requires a password and is called “manual”, and another that does not require a password and is called “automatic”.
On the other hand, if you have an HP printer without a touchscreen, you can still get all the information you need from your printer. You can print the Wi-Fi Direct information reports by pressing the “information button” on some HP printers.
Also, if your HP printer has the Start and Copy buttons, you can press both at the same time to retrieve the information reports.
You may see another button on your HP printer labeled “Resume”. hold it down for a few seconds until the comprehensive information report appears.
Please follow all instructions carefully while setting up the new Wi-Fi password standard for your HP printer and changing the printer name at the same time.
You need to make sure that the wireless connection of your smartphone or computer is also connected to your HP printer.
When a printer connects to a wireless network, the printer always has a unique configuration identification number that you must write down.
You must also obtain the IP address of your HP printer.
If your HP printer does not have a control panel display, you can print the network setup page to find out the IP address.
On the other hand, if you have an HP touchscreen printer, you can get your printer’s IP address from the Network Settings or Wireless menu.
Next, go to your browser’s address bar and type in your printer’s IP address.
When you press Enter, the printer’s EWS (embedded web server) will open.
Next, select “Network WLAN Direct Status.” A notification will appear informing you that you are being redirected to a new secure HTTPS-enabled page.
To continue the process, you need to select “OK”.
There is a possibility that you will receive a notification that reads something like “Your connection is not private”. Please select “Advanced” in this situation. Next, select “Go to a printer IP address”.
Then for Wi-Fi Direct status, navigate to the “Edit Settings” button on your screen and make the changes you want.
When you have made all the changes, such as changing the printer name and selecting the default Wi-Fi password for your printer, click “Apply” to save the changes.
If you follow the instructions above carefully and accurately, you will almost certainly avoid mistakes and complete your task quickly. Don’t worry!
