how to connect hp officejet pro 8610 to wifi

To connect your HP OfficeJet Pro 8610 to Wi-Fi, follow these steps:

Note: Before you begin, ensure that you have the following:

  • Your Wi-Fi network name (SSID) and password.
  • A computer or mobile device that is connected to the same Wi-Fi network you want to connect the printer to.


  1. Power on the Printer:
    • Make sure your HP OfficeJet Pro 8610 is powered on.
  2. Access the Control Panel:
    • On the printer’s control panel, tap the “Wireless” or “Setup” button. This will vary depending on your printer’s display.
  3. Open the Wireless Setup Wizard:
    • From the Wireless or Setup menu, locate and select the “Wireless Setup Wizard” option. This will initiate the printer’s search for available Wi-Fi networks.
  4. Select Your Wi-Fi Network:
    • The printer will display a list of available Wi-Fi networks in your area. Scroll through the list and select your Wi-Fi network from the list.
  5. Enter the Wi-Fi Password:
    • If your Wi-Fi network is password-protected (which is common), you will be prompted to enter the Wi-Fi password (also known as the WPA or WEP key). Use the printer’s touchscreen keyboard to input the password.
  6. Confirm Settings:
    • After entering the password, double-check to ensure it is correct.
  7. Connect to Wi-Fi:
    • Once you’ve entered the correct password, the printer will attempt to connect to the Wi-Fi network.
  8. Complete the Setup:
    • If the connection is successful, the printer will display a confirmation message. You may also receive a notification on your computer or mobile device confirming the connection.
  9. Install Printer Software (If Needed):
    • If you haven’t already installed the HP printer software on your computer or mobile device, you can do so now. The software is available for download from the HP website.
  10. Test the Connection:
    • To ensure that the printer is correctly connected to Wi-Fi, you can print a network configuration or status report from the printer’s control panel.
  11. Print from Your Devices:
    • With the HP OfficeJet Pro 8610 connected to Wi-Fi, you can now print documents and photos from your computer, smartphone, or tablet wirelessly. Make sure that your devices are on the same Wi-Fi network as the printer.

If you encounter any issues during the setup process, consult the printer’s user manual or the HP website for troubleshooting guidance. Additionally, ensure that your Wi-Fi network is operational and that the printer is within the Wi-Fi signal range.
