In addition, remove any items that may be acting as obstacles between the router and the printer. These could be anything from security cameras to Bluetooth devices to cordless phones. Then check for Wi-Fi connection problems.

Be sure that your HP Envy Printer is not connected to any guest networks and is fully and strongly connected to your Wi-Fi network.
