Same way as you connect any other device: by configuring it to connect to the SSID in question.

Please refer to your printer manual to find out the best way to do that. Some printers have a touch screen display that allows you to enter the appropriate information directly, some others require you to connect your computer via USB or network cable, and to configure the printer via application or web interface.

I did that on the HP Laser Jet Pro 400 m401dw, through the touch screen I was able to add the pw for the SSID but it didn't keep the setting....

Hi Laura

What kind of security settings are you using (WPA2, Radius ...)?

Unfortunately Radius (802.1x) doesn't work with most printers ...
