Hi my name is ***** ***** I will be the expert working with you today to help resolve your problem.
1. Unplug the routers power cable and let it sit for 2 to 3 mins.
2. unplug the printer power as well and let it sit.
3. Connect the routers power back and let it turn on and bootup
wait for 3 mins to get the router booted up and be stable
now turn the pc/computer on and let the computer connect to the wireless and verify the pc is connected to the internet using wireless service.
4. Now turn the printer power on and let it boot as well.
Now try to print and tell me if it prints or not.

let me know the operating system installed on the computer thats connected to printer
Expert:  Michelle replied 2 years ago.
power off the printer.
uninstall the printer driver from the computer and then restart it after removing the diver.
re install the printer driver from the latest driver download and select wifi during the installation will fix the problem.

let me know if you want to opt for remote assistance
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
I did all of that before I went to the internet for help. I will have to get a technician to come in and look at it as nothing suggested here has helped.
Expert:  Michelle replied 2 years ago.
you may opt for a technician however that will cost you more the $100. i have offered you a remote fix if you would like i can fix it right now with an additional charge of $15.
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
I did not know there is additional charge - this was not disclosed and I don't feel safe with this option.
The printer error is TS-07. Do you know what this is?
Expert:  Michelle replied 2 years ago.
it was just an additional offer is is not mandatory to accept it however the error error is TS-07 means Connection : Failed (Error : TS-07) on the WLAN report.
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
Once again I have done all the above, third time now but no success. My internet is on and working so I cant work out why the printer is not picking it up.
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
My problem has not been resolved. Please do not charge me as I am getting someone in to look at it.
Thank you.
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
Michelle please confirm no payment is taken. Thank you.

Have you got the original instructions to set the printer up?If you go through those again it should connect. Unless there is a physical problem with the printer It is using WiFi?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
Hi Robert, yes it is using wifi but is "offline" and no matter what I do I cant get it to connect to the wifi even though the wifi light is on. Unfortunately I don't have the original instructions for set up so I have called a tech to come and look at it as I cannot find the problem even following all the instructions given by Michelle previously.
Expert:  Robert M. replied 2 years ago.
does it say offline on the printer or the computer ?there are 2 parts to a wifi setup. first you connect the printer to the wifi routerthen you connect the computer to the printer through the wifito find out if the printer lost its wifi connection you need to either run a network diagnostic page from the printer menu on the printeror sometimes it will say if it has an ip address on the wifi menu on the printerif it is not connected you have to go through the wifi setup on the printer menu. if it is connected but got a new ip address which happens you just have to install it on the computer again delete the printer from the devices and printers folderthen click the add printer buttonsay network printerlet it scan for printersif it shows up on the list just click next next next and it should create the printer again and it should work if it does not show up on the list than the printer is not connected to the wifi and you have to go through the steps to connect it to the wifi. usually its pretty easy. just select wifi from the printer menu and either put in the passkey from the wifi or hit the wps button on the router till it flashes and you have 2 minutes to tell do the next step on the printer to connect
