Turn Off Wireless on Your HP Printer
Wireless printers can broadcast their own Wi-Fi signal. Our network does not support broadcasted Wi-Fi signals from devices. You must turn this function off when you are on campus. 

For more information or for specific model instructions, visit the HP Printer Customer Support page. 

If Wireless indicator persists, shut down the printer. Then, hold the "wireless" and "cancel" buttons together while powering the printer back on. Wait for all the lights to flash together and then let the buttons go.
