Hi, thank you for contacting My name is Russell. I will do my best to provide the right answer to your question.

Given that you got an APIPA (or 169.x.x.x) IP address for the printer, I would say that the printer wasn't 'really connected'. 169.x.x.x or APIPA addresses are assigned by a device, characteristically, when they aren't really in touch with anything... or when they 'have' a network connection capability, at least theoretically, but don't get assigned a true IP address by DHCP on a router box, etc. So the device doesn't know what sort of network address it ought to have and defaults to APIPA.

So we need to go about setting up the computer to print to the printer a different way. Please tell me this information (of importance in this case) about your setup:

- in your Windows 8 computer's
Start - Control Panel - System Information - System
what is the 'System Type' listed there? it should be either 32-bit or 64-bit.

- do you have a router box? (or other networking box...) if so, of what maker and model #?

- do you have internet access, when using your Windows 8 computer? I would think so, but I want to be sure.

With that information, I ought to be able to give you accurate instructions as to what to do. Thanks.
