  • Hi,

    Go to settings, Network and Internet, select WiFi from left pane, click "manage known networks" and click forget for any of your neighbours' WiFi shown there.

    i live in rural area so no other networks around me.

  • When you click the WiFi icon on the taskbar, do you get others showing as in the picture.

    No.  Just my home wifi. But my android picks up my home wifi and hp wifi direct from the printer.My home wifi can be a bit tempermental at times so it would be nice to have the option of being able to use wifi direct for printing if needed.

    Thanks

  • Have you tried reinstalling the printer drivers, if you haven't give it a try.
