Customer Question
I have tried unplugging printer...
My wi-fi orange light is flashing and I am not able to print. I have tried unplugging printer, network modem, and re-booted more than once. Troubleshooting indicated it was a home group problem to which I hit fix but it obviously did not. Appreciate you help.
