Printer Repair Questions? Ask IT Technicians for Answers ASAP
Hi and Welcome. My Name is ***** ***** I look forward to assisting you today with your question.
Do you have the USB cable came with the printer ?
It is easy to setup Wireless on this printer via USB cable. Since you don't have USB cable, we need to setup it via WPS. Does your router has a WPS button ? It looks like a button with a two curved arrows or WPS written on it or has a wireless icon
Neither. It is a device installed by your internet service provider (a small box)
I can connect securely and fix it from here without US number. But first I need to know whether your router has a WPS button. Can you check it ?
Router (or modem) is the small box installed by your ISP (internet service provider)
Then you need to get the USB cable (to setup wireless on it). Are you sure don't have it ? Most printers comes with it. It looks like this --> http://driver-pro.com/static/images/article-content/usb-printer-installation-tutorial/usb-printer-cable.jpg
