Hello My Friend,

Where is your router located? Is it located distant to printer?
Customer: replied 6 years ago.

Well, I went out and bought a new printer to fix the same problem I had with my other printer. One is located in the same room as the router and this brand new printer is now sitting in the adjacent room. I can print wirelessly to the printer but when I try to scan it says that it says the computer is unable to connect to the printer. The NEW scanner printer I bought, spit out this piece of paper with the error message I gave you on it. It too, says that all the commuication checks have been passed.
