I’ve got a MacBook Pro, running High Sierra 10.13.4 & an HP OfficeJet 4650 All-in-One printer & can’t get them to work together. Using the HP software, I get no devices detected.
If I connect Mac to the printers built in WiFi network, it detects & sets up ok, but of course there goes my internet connection!
