When you attempted to Add Pinter, did the installation wizard find your printer?

No it did not
Expert:  Joel Kalman replied 8 months ago.

Your printer is not connected to your wireless network. You must use the network menu on your printer console to find your network name (SSID) and enter your wifi password (Network Security Key).
