Why can't I connect my wireless printer or print over the network?

Check network issues and setup requirements if the printer is not found during software installs or when wireless print jobs fail.

  • Poor network connection: Move the printer and computer or mobile device closer to the wireless router, and then check if the signal quality improved. Try opening a website to see if the internet connection is working properly. If Wi-Fi is slow or intermittent, restart the router by disconnecting the power cord, waiting 15 seconds, and then reconnecting the cord.
  • Printer is off or in sleep mode: Touch the control panel menu or press the Powerbutton to wake the printer and put it in a ready state. Sometimes the printer status might display Offline when it is actually ready.
  • Check the printer connection status: Make sure the wireless signal is on, and the printer is connected to the same network as your computer or mobile device. If your printer has a light next to a Wirelessicon or button , make sure the light is on. If it is off or blinks the printer is disconnected from the network.
  • Reconnect the printer to the network: Place the printer within range of the Wi-Fi router signal, and then connect it to the network.
    • Printers with a touchscreen control panel: Open the Setup, Network, or Wireless settingsmenu, select Wireless Setup Wizard, and then follow the instructions to select the network name and enter the password.
    • Printers without a touchscreen control panel: Press and hold the Wirelessbutton  for five seconds or until the wireless light starts to flash. Within two minutes, press and hold the WPS (Wi-Fi Protected Setup) button on the router until the connection process begins. The printer wireless light stops flashing when the connection completes.

Within two minutes, press and hold the WPS button on the router until the connection process begins. The blue bar stops flashing when the connection completes.
