if you had the printer before using the USB cable. then you changed it to wireless, try the ff:

1. re-insert the CD the came with the box, the cd that you used to install the printer Software to your computer.
2. after inserting the cd, it will give you option "add a device".
3. click on that to install the printer driver for WIRELESS.

note: the reason why you cant print, is mainly because the printer driver you have is still for USB connection. so inorder for you to be able to print, you need to install a printer DRIVER for wireless... That should WORK..

Hp laserjet wireless not found on my phone

why not RTM? (omg)
read the manual,
all this is covered there. how to CONNECT.
there is no phone support, apple or android. only xp to w10.
on newer printer, far newer, the phone can be linked to HP smart print servers and to your home system printers.

here is HP site page showing how to do that,

first pick a printer that does that.
using the smart app
or ePrint.
there are many ways to set that up, but direct cell to printer.
no. (yes new products can do direct cell print)
that is called wireless direct print , features, as see here.

you said you have phone (cell apple or android?_)
then said have a laptop.
my cell , is android and I use local wifi , to save 3g charges
do you?
my laptop has internet connections 2 ways, wired, and wireless
does yours have wireless. seems not.? but.... do you?
you said no router, but if you go to any ISP today
and he installs internet service, there are 2 hidden router now
inside the old name modem,
the modern cheaper modem has that, hidden is side.
has 3 things in the black box.

so what do you have there that we cant see, devices to the ISP
with names and model numbers.
knowing that tells the helper what is possible , (all things)

my guess is you want to print, using the CELL.
if you dont have eprint mail the docs or photos to the laptop
then, print from Laptop
to printer using a USB cable, (USB is 10x more easy to make work)

your printer can connect up 3 ways.
Printer USB to PC. direct wired printing. ( always a choice, direct)
Ethernet to router. wired. (all things connected to this router can print.
wireless to router. printer to router joined, and print from any thing at home connected to said router.

if it must be wireless, (you must have that?)
then buy a router. and use that, and is safer behind any router firewall vastly saver too boot.

If you have a USB memory stick (Flash Drive) you can copy the contents of the CD to that and then run the setup program from there. If you don't have a PC with a CD drive you could ask a friend/colleague to copy the cd onto the stick for you.

You can attach the printer directly through USB cable to your computer and print, or you can connect the printer and your computer to the same wireless network and then print using the wireless and your connection.
Internet is not necessary, only a communication path needs to be established. For this whether its your neighbor's wifi network, your own wifi network, a usb cable connection between your pc and printer etc printing will be accomplished.
