Hi,

Can you check your Mac OS X version, such as 10.5, 10.6, 10.7, etc. You can click on the Apple logo menu, then select About This Mac.


Thank you.

Version 10.4.11
Expert:  Viet - Printer Tech replied 4 years ago.
Unfortunately, like many new hardware devices, the new printer is not compatible with the old Mac OS X 10.4... version:

You need to upgrade your computer to newer version:

How can I print from my IPhone 3G,4GS and my IPad 2?
Expert:  Viet - Printer Tech replied 4 years ago.
You need to connect the printer to the wireless/network. Go to the network setup on the printer's screen and connect it to your network first.

my router does not have a push button. WEstell Versalink model 327W
Expert:  Viet - Printer Tech replied 4 years ago.
Don't use the push method; use the other method. Thanks.
Customer: replied 4 years ago.
what is the other method? I'm sorry I don't understand.
Expert:  Viet - Printer Tech replied 4 years ago.
Go to the network setup on the printer's screen and what are the options? Thanks.
Customer: replied 4 years ago.
if using PIN make sure your router supports PIN and you have entered it correctly.I don't know how to enter PIN to the router.
Expert:  Viet - Printer Tech replied 4 years ago.
Don't try the PIN method. What are the options when you go to the network setup on the printer? Can you try another method there?

Thanks.
Customer: replied 4 years ago.
push button or pin those are my two options. I'm not having any sucsess. I will return the unit to the place of purchase for help or a refund.Thank you for your efforts, I'm tired and I'm going to bed. Goodnight.
Expert:  Viet - Printer Tech replied 4 years ago.
Sorry, it's easier if your computer is compatible with the printer, so you can setup by installing the printer driver/software. When you purchase almost any new printer now, it requires you have a newer version of Mac OS X.

If you have any further question later, please let me know. Thank you.
