Hello, and thanks for asking your question. My name is XXXXX XXXXX I will be your expert today.

Was the wifi setup previously with this printer, or is this the first time you are trying to set it up?

Do you know your network name (SSID) and password?

Also, are you using Windows XP, Vista, 7, or Mac?

Thanks

First time with this printer, and yes the wifi was already setup. I do know the name and password XXXXX the wifi and I'm using Mac.
Technician: Bernie, Printer Technician replied 6 years ago
Ok thanks, please click here and just follow the steps to enter your SSID and password XXXXX into the printer itself.

Once you've done that, go ahead and turn off the printer > Click the apple icon in the upper left > System preferences > Print and Fax (or scan)

Right click your printer (or press and hold the control key, then click) to select Reset printer system

Restart the mac, then, run the driver cd that came with the printer and install it as a network printer, and you should be all set to print

Let me know if that clears it up, if not, we will try some other steps. To make sure you can return to me, please favorite or bookmark this page, or use this web address (write it down): http://is.gd/b7iYTc

Thanks,
Bernie

It's still shows "Offline" and won't print. I went through every step again and every screen appeared as it should. One thing that didn't happen, is that it never asked me for a password for the network.
Not sure what to do?
Technician: Bernie, Printer Technician replied 6 years ago
Do you have a router to setup to broadcast a wireless network in your home?

If so, are other wireless devices already setup in the home?

Thanks

Customer reply replied 6 years ago
yes, and yes everything else works fine. What is weird is that at no point in the setup was I asked to enter in the password to the router?
Technician: Bernie, Printer Technician replied 6 years ago
It should be step 10 in the guide, after you pick your wireless network, please review it again.

When I get there it just selects the router for me?
Customer reply replied 6 years ago
Can I just go right to step 10 somehow or do I have to go through the installation process over again?
Technician: Bernie, Printer Technician replied 6 years ago
I apologize but for now I need to opt out and open your question to all experts again as I will need to go offline.

Hi my name is Dimmusacio I see Bernie has opted out. Do you still need help with this?
Ask Your Own Printers Question
Customer reply replied 6 years ago
yes, I will try again, but when I get to step 10 i don't get asked for the wifi password, so i think that is the issue.
Technician: Freddy M., Technician replied 6 years ago
Ok when you get to step 10 on the lower left corner click on manual setup instead and try entering the information that way. If you need help with it let me know.
