It's still not working
Expert:  Josh replied 1 year ago.
Did you install the software?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I downloaded like you said then tried to print- it said to check my printer. My printer said to set up wireless and I couldn't figure out how to do it
Expert:  Josh replied 1 year ago.
Did you run the downloaded software? There are two steps -- downloading and running the program
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
sorry for taking so long to get back to you- I had to get a new chord to pug in my printer in the mail
Expert:  Josh replied 1 year ago.
No problem -- Make sure you run the downloaded program otherwise nothing was installed
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I think it was installed.. but now the printer needs to be connected to wireless and said it needed a code.. I tried and couldn't figure it out
Expert:  Josh replied 1 year ago.
Correct -- the printer needs the Wi-Fi password. Do you need help retrieving that password?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I just tried to print something again and only see the option for a Microsoft printer now; last time it had my hp printer on there too. do I need to download again?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
do I need to press ePrint on my printer to set it up?
Expert:  Josh replied 1 year ago.
You will need to connect to the printer to your wireless network (that is done on the printer) then install/run the program that I gave you and it will find that printer and install the drivers/software
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Oh!!
Expert:  Josh replied 1 year ago.
Yes :) Let me know how it goes
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
do I press eprint? If I press ePrint- it says
Not Connected
SSID:N/A
MAC:28-92-4A-65-E3-03
Wireless Direct:On
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
then I press continue and it says
wireless on
wireless direct on
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
for set up it says press the button on my router for three seconds and I did and the printer shows a progress line for 3 minutes
Expert:  Josh replied 1 year ago.
Did you press and hold down the WPS button on the router for about 5 seconds? It is not finding the printer if it stays on your screen for 3 minutes
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
ok- I think I need to buy a usb chord to connect printer to laptop
Expert:  Josh replied 1 year ago.
You can connect the printer via USB if you wish but it has the option for wireless/Wi-Fi too
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
yeah- but the wireless setup is not working
Expert:  Josh replied 1 year ago.
That is up to you if you wish to use a direct connection via USB
