Ask Computer Networking Questions and Get Answers ASAP
Hi there and welcome
What exactly does the printer display as on the Mac?
And have you connected it to your wifi network yet?
When you say wired, you mean you connected the printer to the Mac via the USB cable correct?
Can you remove the power to the printer, so disconnect it from the power socket, and unplug the USB cable.
Then wait 10 minutes.
connect the power and run the installation again, and wait for it to tell you to connect the USB cable. When it does, connect it and tell me if it is then detected please.
Then do my instructions but do the installation via wireless following this video as its easiest.
Let me know how you go please
because thats its default machine name
ok, I responded to this question before but you may have missed my answer. I have repeated it below
because thats its default machine name. Likely someone who used it before you set it as this.
ok, I want you to follow the video please, and tell me after entering in the network password ***** connecting to the wifi network, what exactly happens.
ok! thats why the initial instructions was to disconnect everything and then reconnect, but we got sidetracked when you requested the walkthrough.
But you have that now, and good it is all working.
If you would like any additional information or assistance, please do not hesitate to let me know.
