How do you connect an HP printer to a WiFi network?

To create a wireless connection between your printer and the network, use Wi-Fi Protected Setup (WPS), HP Smart, or temporarily attach a USB cable. WPS is used to connect the printer. Wi-Fi Protected Setup (WPS) is a simple method for connecting a Wi-Fi device to a WPS-enabled Wi-Fi network. Using this tool is easier than using the IP address to connect a printer directly to the network.

You can also connect an HP LaserJet printer directly to a wired network by attaching it with a USB cable. This is useful if you want to print files from a computer other than the one on which the printer is connected. For example, if you want to print a file on a laptop when you're working away from your office, then you should connect the printer to the office network and download the file there before printing it. The printer will be able to find the office network because it has a unique identifier called a Media Access Control (MAC) address. A MAC address is a 16-bit number that identifies each device that connects to the network. It's usually printed on a box with the model name and serial number of the device.

To connect a new device to an existing network, you must first identify its MAC address. On most networks, the administrator provides each user with a unique ID known as a "user ID" or "user password". You can use this information to identify devices that should be allowed to connect to the network.
