I'm above average technically. It was very easy to set up. Hardest part will probably connect to your WiFi. Make sure you know your password (SSID) and network name and you should be good.

Question

wireless signal lost

I hooked this up to manufacturer instructions and had success. As the printer is in Fla we only use a couple times a year. Last week it did not work and the Laptop did not pick up a wireless single from the printer. What should I do next to reestablish a hand shake?
Thanks, Tim

re-establishing the connection is pretty simple go to your control panel, click on printers and devices, right click on your printer and click on trouble shoot (let it do its thing) and your connection will be restored (make sure the printer is already on when you do the troubleshooting)

Try this:
1) On the main menu scroll all the way down and select wireless.
2) Click on "Wireless Setup Wizard"
3) When you see your network enter the password. (If you have one)
4) If everything goes OK the wireless light should have the LED next to it solid blue.

Hope it helps

answer 6
Reinstall the printer drivers. If it was awhile you might have done something to your network or the printer might have just forgotten its configurations. Wireless printers are inherently unstable in wireless mode.

You can fix this by getting a wireless adapter which will plug wired into the printer and then serve the printer wirelessly on your network in a more competent fashion. But that's up to you. I generally don't trust wireless printers to remain on the network without tinkering. they always have issues.

Sometimes all it takes is a power outage.

WEP is the encrypted password for your wireless network. Hint: most cable providers that are supplying the wireless modem leave the password on the side or bottom of the wireless modem.

answer 5
WEP and WPA (and WPA2) are wireless security standards that routers use to protect wireless transmissions to and from wireless network devices (like laptops, tablets, smartphones and network printers). As you are trying to connect your printer to your network, you need to know the WEP, WPA or WPA2 wireless password (security key)that you've previously established on your router - it's that wireless password that you're being asked for on the printer setup screen. If you don't know that password, you may find it printed on a label on the router, or, if you've previously connected a wireless device to your network, you may be able to look the required password up on that device. Otherwise, you'll need to configure your router with a wireless password (exact procedure differs from router to router), and then use that to connect your printer.

WEP means that the device uses network security which is comparable to a LAN (wired) connection. WPA is a higher security setting that seeks to improve on possible WEP issues. In general, your printer will hook up to your wireless network, and each option will be secured.

Yes it will work as long as it is connected to the same internet. My computer is wired via ethernet cable to the router and they're in the same room. Meanwhile I can still print from my laptop upstairs since they're on the same Wi-Fi network.
