Hi, Sorry for the delay. I was offline until now...
Based on your description, I am still not understanding your setup.
When you say "I am trying to set up a wireless connection with a cable as recommended to my laptop" do you mean you are connecting a cable from your laptop to the printer in an attempt to configure the wireless connection on the printer?
Your best strategy would be this.
Connect everything wired. Laptop and printer both connected to the same router
WIRED. You cannot just connect the pc to the printer...
Do the reset procedure on the printer then print a configuration page. You should have an ip address. IPv6 does not matter. Everythings using IPv4 for now. You may have to look in the instructions and enable the WIRED connection after reset. It may turn it off by default
Once you have an IP address on the printer, you can configure the wireless via the webpage interface to the printer and/or verify that you can print.
If you want, you can skip the wired part IF you can get the wireless configured first. But you will need to be able to enter the wireless network name and password...
Here are the instructions for both temporary wired then convert to wireless (which i recommend), or straight wireless (which appears to be failing for you) select the one you want from the choices....
read through the instructions on both then let me know if youre still having a problem.
