HP Officejet Pro 8630 Setup WPS(Wi-Fi Protected Setup)

Wi-Fi Setup / WPS has two modes to connect devices together over a wireless connection. One is called “pushbutton” and the other is called “PIN”. Pushbutton is by far the easiest method. We will describe how to connect using the WPS pushbutton method, but not the PIN method.
For instructions on starting WPS on your printer consult your printer’s manual. However there are some conditions that need to be met in order to use WPS pushbutton mode:

Both your printer and wireless router must support WPS pushbutton mode. Consult your printer and wireless router manuals. The wireless router must have a physical WPS pushbutton available. Your network must use WPA or WPA2 security. Most WPS wireless routers will not connect using the WPS method if WEP or no security is used.  Most WPS wireless routers will not connect using the WPS method if you are using the manufacturer’s default for the network name and no security.
HP Officejet Pro 8630 Network Configuration Page

If the printer is connected to a network, you can print a network configuration page to view the network settings for HP Officejet 8630 and a list of networks detected by your printer. The last page of the report includes a list of all detectable wireless networks in the area, along with signal strength and the channels being used. This might help you select a channel for your network which is not heavily used by other networks (which will improve network performance).
You can use the network configuration page to help troubleshoot network connectivity problems. If
you need to call HP, it is often useful to print this page before calling.

To print the network configuration page
  1. From the printer control panel, touch Setup.
  2. Touch Reports and then touch Network Configuration Report.
If HP Auto Wireless Connect is offered during the installation of your printer, it is the recommended setup method. Part of the setup process requires your computer to be temporarily disconnected from your wireless network. During this time you will not have Internet access. Be sure to save any online work and/or downloads before continuing with this setup method.
To use this option, install the software for your printer and follow the onscreen instructions. When prompted, select the “Network (Ethernet/Wireless)” connection type and then choose “Yes, send my wireless settings to the printer (recommended)”. That’s it! The HP software will do the rest. If HP Auto Wireless Connect is not offered during the software installation or if it is not successful, you will be guided to use another wireless setup method.
