Hello, I am having...

Hello, I am having trouble getting my Dell wireless printer to communicate with my wireless router and therefore can print from any of my devices. I recently changed the security settings on my router from WEP to WPA2 and all my devices are working fine but I can get the printer to work on any of my devices.

Technician's Assistant: Are you able to connect using an ethernet cable?

I will have to locate one, but I should be able to. What steps should I follow after>

Technician's Assistant: The Network Technician will be able to walk you through that. Which lights are colored and/or blinking on your router?

Hello, I am having an issue with my dell wireless printing. I cannot get the printer to print wirelessly or even communicate with the printer.
