cannot connect to HP wireless printer

I am very frustrated!  I'm sure most of you who result to this can attest to. I have talked to HP support, talked to Verizon support. Even had a 3-way call with both of them. Of course, HP wants me to pay for their "solution" because the printer is out of warranty.  Not!!! So, I have an HP wireless printer that does not print wirelessly.  I thought...that the 4G LTE 4510L would act like the router I no longer have so I could printer wirelessly, BUT NOOOOOOO....  So, neither of these parties have been able to assist.  Can anyone out there help?

Thank you!

The MiFi 4510L is a router and can support up to 5 devices wirelessly.  HP printers are no exception but you may have to tweak the MiFi a little to get it to play nicely with all your devices.

My suggestion is to lower the wireless mode down to B/G.  This should make your wireless connection more simple and compatible with your printer.

Change the 802.11/Wireless Mode

  1. Sign into your MiFi
  2. Click the Wi-Fi tab
  3. Change the 802.11 mode from B+G+N to B+G
  4. Click Apply
  5. Test your connection

If you could provide us with your printer model and more details on where the installation is breaking we might be able to provide more suggestions.

Hi John! Thanks so much for your response.  I will try the steps you have outlined below and get back to you.  I am not a real tech savvy sort of person so hopefully, I can understand what you are saying once I get there.BTW, My printer is an HP J6480 officejet all in one.  Thanks again.
