When I connect my HP printer wirelessly, my printer refuses to print. On the other hand, when I connect my HP printer through USB cable connection then my printer works fine. I don’t understand why my printer is not printing anything when connected wirelessly. I have also run scan doctor, reinstalled software but everything result nothing, my problem is still same. Can anybody share the procedure of connecting HP printer wirelessly so that I can check where I have made mistake?
