Installing the HP NFC/Wireless 1200w Mobile Print Accessory | HP


This video shows how to install the HP NFC/Wireless
1200w Mobile Print Accessory. We will demonstrate both the direct wireless
and USB pass-through connection methods. The USB pass-through connection is an optional
connection method. The USB pass-through allows your printer to
directly communicate with the PC through the 1200w using a USB cable. The 1200w kit provides everything needed for
the direct wireless connection. The kit provides:
HP Wireless 1200w Mobile Print Accessory, Power supply,
Plug Adaptor, USB A/B cable, The USB pass-through connection option requires
one additional USB A/B cable, which is not provided in the kit. If the printer was initially connected directly
to the PC, then this USB cable can be used. This is the HP Wireless 1200w Mobile Print
Accessory. We will point out the various parts in a quick
tour to make installation easier. On top you will see the NFC icon and the two
status indicator lights. This is the multifunction button. On the back of the 1200w are two USB ports
and a power port. Here is where you can attach an optional Kensington
Lock. And this label shows the device’s Service
Set Identification or SSID. The device’s serial number and MAC address
are located on the underside of the 1200w. The first step is to assemble the power adapter. The power adapter comes in two pieces, a base
and a regional specific plug. To begin the installation insert the plug
adaptor into the power supply. Plug the power supply into the 1200w. Plug the power supply into a power source. For this demonstration we will use an HP LaserJet
Pro MFP M125 printer. Turn on the printer before continuing. You have two options in how you set up and
use the HP Wireless 1200w Mobile Print Accessory. The first option we will show is the direct
wireless method. This will allow you to connect wirelessly
to your printer. Plug the A plug of the USB A/B cable into
the 1200w module. Plug the B plug of the USB A/B cable into
the printer’s USB port. At this point you can connect to the device’s
SSID in order to print using HP wireless direct; also known as peer to peer printing. If the connections are all correct there will
be a green LED ready light showing on the 1200w. Note: If you connected wirelessly to the 1200w
the LEDs will show green and blue. If a red LED lights up, support might be required. First, verify that you’ve made all of the
connections correctly. For additional product information, including
troubleshooting, go to: hp.com/go/1200wSupport, or scan the associated QR code on the Install
Guide in your 1200w kit. The second setup option for the HP Wireless
1200w Mobile Print Accessory is known as the USB pass-through configuration. This option will allow you to connect wirelessly
to your printer and also attach a computer directly to the printer through a second USB
cable. With the 1200w Mobile Print Accessory already
attached to the printer, attach a second USB A/B cable. For the USB pass-through mode, insert the
B plug of the second USB A/B cable into the 1200w’s second USB port. Insert the A plug of the second USB A/B cable
into a laptop or computer. This is how the final configuration should
look. If the connections are all correct the 1200w
ready light will show green. Note: If you connected wirelessly to the 1200w
the LEDs will show green and blue. If a red LED lights up, support might be required.
First verify that you’ve made all of the connections correctly. For additional product information, including
troubleshooting, go to: hp.com/go/1200wSupport, or scan the associated QR code on the Install
Guide in your 1200w kit. With a green indicator light on, verify the
print connection. Press and hold the multi-function button for
two seconds, then release it. A configuration page will print. Note: if the multi-function button is held
for 14 seconds it will reset the device to the factory settings. The configuration page includes the device’s
SSID, IP address, and a QR code. The SSID provides the wireless direct print
connection. The IP/QR code enables access to the Embedded
Web Server (EWS), which launches the 1200w Wizard. For most mobile devices you can connect to
the 1200w’s SSID using the Wi-Fi menu on your mobile device. This is usually found under Settings. You will see a wireless network name (SSID)
with 1200w. Tap the wireless network name (SSID) to establish
an HP wireless direct connection. When you connect wirelessly to the 1200w using
a smart phone, tablet, or laptop, the 1200w LEDs will show green and blue. If the 1200w Wizard doesn’t automatically
launch, then open your web browser and enter the IP address 192.168.223.1, or scan the Wireless Direct Configuration
QR code from the configuration page you printed. Once in the EWS, the Wizard will launch for
first time users. Follow the onscreen instructions to complete
the setup using the Wizard. HP recommends using the Setup Wizard to configure
the 1200w to enable automatic firmware updates and configure the 1200w to access your existing
wireless network. You can use the EWS at any time to connect
the 1200w to your existing wireless network, get automatic firmware updates, and set the
EWS password. For more information go to hp.com/go/1200wSupport,

    I have a HP Officejet 100 Mobile Printer. I also purchased the Wireless 1200w Mobile Print Accessory. I want to print from my Samsung Galaxy S4. Could you please help me out

    An abusive use of the term "MOBILE". Since when does a device requiring  a household AC current connection constitute being MOBILE! Not to mention if you're connected wirelessly to the accessory's IP  this will disconnect any hotspot connection therefore preventing printing from the web unless your mobile device has bluetooth or data capabilities.
    Shame on you HP for charging $90 to your consumers for your printer's shortcomings. I own your mobile 150 MFP. As an Apple device user, I expected more from a manufacturer of AirPrint devices. HP you should take a page from Apple's business philosophy, maybe next time you'll make a better product.
