My new Rebel Eos T6i won't connect with printer

[ Edited ]

I have tried to set up my camera to my HP printer using:

 

Infrastructure mode:  

 

1.  Wi-Fi connection on home network.  It tells me the printer needs to be connected to the Wi-fi network, but it is connected.

 

2.  Printer direct - It tells me it is connected on the Printer; however it does not recognize the network on the camera.

 

I have refreshed my wi-fi settings and still nothing.

 

I have not used Camera Access point because it will delete my wi-fi settings on my printer for my home network and replace them with the camera.

 

I have been successfully able to connect wi-fi to the TV for playback.  

 

Any suggestions are greatly appreciated.

Your camera can only make a direct connection to compatible printers.  The only compatible printers that I am aware of that allow you to print directly from camera to printer are made by Canon, which does not mean any Canon printer.

The above is from their literature at their onllne sales site.

Are both your camera and printer "PictBridge" enabled?  They would need to be in order to print directly from camera to printer.

 

For example, the HP OfficeJet 150 Mobile is both Bluetooth and PictBridge enabled.
