I have an MP495 which is adequate of my limited printing

Customer Question

I have an MP495 which is adequate for most of my limited printing needs and it works just fine hard-wired to my desktop. However, I also have a laptop running windows 10 but I can't seem to figure how to get these two to work together via "Wi-Fi". Any help would be appreciated.

I'm sorry about the issue. What's the model of your internet modem / router device?

Can we do a remote support session, so I can troubleshoot the issue directly on your computer together with you?
