How do i disable wifi on hp officejet 6100 printer
Everyone else is ignoring this guys question, simply because they wireless printing is so wonderful. Well let me tell you if you got unlimited internet and can pay for it every month, it is wonderful. However the HP 6100 has a nasty habit of getting online to update. It updates so much it can take 4G you pay $40 for every month and eat it up in one day. It's a wi-fi hog! So if you can barely pay for internet every month, it will clean you out of Gig very quickly. It can be a "White Elephant" for anyone with minimal internet. It's better not to use the Wireless feature at all!
I later replaced it with a Cannon printer that didn't have WiFi and saved my internet Gigs. It also didn't help at the time the cartridges were so much more expensive than my old HP Printer. That will the last HP Printer I will buy.
What I did in the mean time, is I took Aluminum Foil and glued it to the outside of the HP6100. It effectively took the HP6100 offline because it couldn't detect the internet through the foil. It works much the same concept as an Aluminum Wallet, except you are trying to keep it from detecting the WiFi signals out. Make sure you leave it where you can access the buttons, what I did was make a flap I lifted up to operate the buttons, then put the flap back down when ever I was done pressing the buttons to keep it off the WiFi. This is the only thing that works. It tried turning the WiFi on my Huawei modem off, but the wireless kept mysteriously coming back on when ever that printer was on.
