Ask Mac Questions and Get Answers from Experts ASAP
Can you tell us what type of wireless router you are using?
Do you know your wireless network name and password XXXXX we can join your printer to the network?
Lets start by checking your wireless name and security.
can you open an Internet Browser such as Safari and type the gateway address in the following format http://192.168.1.1 then hit enter to open the routers login page.
When prompted type your admin username and password ( If you have not changed it just leave the username blank and enter admin as the password XXXXX if you cannot get in can you try admin for the username and admin for the password)
When you get logged into the router can you click the Wireless tab then make a note of your network name (SSID) then click the Wireless Security link under the Wireless tab and your password XXXXX security type should be listed so you can write it down and tape it to the bottom of the router in case you need it in the future.
Try that and let me know once you have the network name, security type and password.
Just take your time and let me know so we can continue
If you would like me to give you instructions to try later or if you would like to pick this up later please let me know
If not let me know if you would like me to have this question closed for you
Whnever you are ready to continue just come back to just answer and let me know
When you try tomorrow just let me know if you have any issues.
f the http://192.168.1.1 address does not work can you click the apple icon and then click system preferences and open networks and let us know what your ip address is.
I am just glad you got it all sorted out.
Hopefully next time we will be of more help
