Thanks for posting your question on Justanswer.com, a global paid independent support site.My Name is ***** ***** I will be assisting you today. The best way to connect the printer with the router is using the PIN, it means you have to enter router passcode in the printer, do you know the passcode of the router ?

I don't have a CD and even if i did i can't put CDs in my laptop. the printer was a used gift thats all I got. What is the network setup application it wants me to put the pin in?
Expert:  Sudipto replied 1 year ago.

If you use that feature then your computer will get disconnected from the wireless router, because a single computer can only connect with only one wireless device at a time and without the printer software, you cannot use the printer, you can download the software from the link below and then run it after that follow the steps to install the printer.

If I download that link will i be able to print over wifi?
Expert:  Sudipto replied 1 year ago.

You have to download the printer software and driver from that link then, you have to follow the steps from the link below to install the printer. I have given you the link to download the software because you said that you do not have the CD of the printer and without the software, you will not be able to use the printer.
