HP DeskJet 3632 Setup Instructions

Perform this HP DeskJet 3632 setup routine to clear out the existing WiFi settings on the printer and connect it to a different Wifi network.

Changing WiFi networks becomes necessary after replacing a router / access point that has a different network name or password than the old network.  You’d also likely do this when moving the printer to a different office or home location.  So, here’s how it’s done.

We assume here that you have previously installed HP’s All-In-One app and configured it on a mobile wireless device you normally print from.  So we won’t delve into setting up that app here in this post.





HP DeskJet 3632 Setup Instructions for this WiFi All in One Printer

1. First, Reset Printer’s Wireless Settings back to Factory Default Values

Hard reset the printer by following the instructions in our How to Reset HP Printer, 3630 Series DeskJet  article.

2. Find the HP All-In-One (AiO Remote) Printer Support App

We’re running an iOS-based tablet here

In our case, we had this printer configured previously.  So it shows up at the top of the AiO Remote home screen, as pointed at in the previous picture by the blue arrow.  If you’re setting up the printer on a different mobile device that what you used before the Wi-Fi network changed, then skip the next step, as the app will immediately give you the opportunity to add a printer.





4. Tap the Offline Printer

Note the red dot by the printer name, above the ink cartridge status indicator, which means that your tablet is unable to connect to the printer through the current wireless network. Tapping this entry gives you the opportunity to select a different printer, as shown in the next picture.

8. Read the  Agreements  Screen to Continue with HP DeskJet 3632 Setup Instructions

If you accept, then check the  I have reviewed and accept the agreements and settings   check box, and move on to the next step.  If not however, then close the app, without setting up the printer.





9. Tap the   Continue   Button

This brings up the   Connect to Printer  screen, as shown next.

10. Bring Up your Mobile device’s  Wi-Fi Settings  Screen

Find the Wi-Fi Settings as shown next. For our iPad, we pressed the home screen, ran the Settings app, and then tapped  Wi-Fi settings.  The results of those actions are shown in the next picture.

11. Tap the   HP-Setup>F5-DeskJet 3630 series   Network to Continue with HP DeskJet 3632 Setup 

This action temporarily disconnects your tablet from your usual Wi-Fi network, and connects it to this temporary HP hotspot network that the printer broadcasts while in setup mode.  A screen such as the following then displays.

12. Tap the Notification to Go Back to the AiO Remote App

If the notification disappears before you have a chance to tap it (you only have a few seconds to poke it before it goes away), then just close the  Wi-Fi Settings  window, locate the AiO Remote app on your  Home  screen as in step 2 above, and tap on that.  Either way you choose, the AiO app then displays the  Connect Printer to Network  screen.

13. Tap the Desired Wi-Fi network for Connecting the HP 3632 Printer

In our case, we’re connecting this printer to the 937T681J4059H_2G Wi-Fi network.  Tapping the desired network brings up the password entry screen, as shown next.

14. Enter your Wireless Network Password to Continue with HP DeskJet 3632 Setup Instructions

Type the password into the field arrowed in the previous picture, and then hit the Return or Go key.  The 3632 printer then attempts to connect to the selected network, and the screen pictured next should appear briefly on your tablet.

15. Watch the Wireless Status Lamp

That light stops flashing and glows a steady white once the printer successfully connects to the selected network, as shown in the next picture.

On the tablet, the  Reconnect your iPad to your network   screen displays, as shown next.

However, we’ve noticed that sometimes, the  Connecting  screen in step 14 above does not disappear, even after the printer itself has connected.  When this occurs, we simply close the AiO app with the Home key, and then reopen it.  The screen just previous then appears.





16. Reconnect your Mobile Device to your Wi-Fi Network

Go back to your tablet’s Wi-Fi settings screen and locate your original wireless network and connect to it.  Note that this may happen automatically once your printer connects.  However, if not, just do it manually.

17. Return to the AiO Remote App Home Screen to Continue with HP DeskJet 3632 Setup Instructions

Do this by closing the Wi-Fi Settings screen in the previous step (hit the Home key), and again bringing up the HP AiO Remote app, as you did in step 2 above.  If the AiO home screen does not appear, then press the Home icon in whatever AiO Remote screen is showing.  This should take you there.  At any rate, the app Home screen you see next, however you get there, should resemble the following.
