Hi my name is ***** ***** I will be the expert working with you today to help and resolve the problem you have posted.
I am sorry to hear that you are having such trouble. I will try my best to help you out and resolve the problem as quick as possible.

Have you tried the printer connecting to the usb port, just to make sure the printer is good and its working on the usb port.

I should have mentioned that I did that and indeed verified the printer worked. I was hoping to take advantage of the wireless capability. Now I know that my wireless router is the problem since I had trouble with the old printer also. Thank you, ***** ***** will pass on any more assistance from you.
