Thank you for your question, my name is ***** ***** I look forward to assisting you.

Please note, a rating is only needed when we are finished.

Can you please remove the power to the printer (so unplug it from the power socket) as well as the wifi router, then power off the mac

Then wait 10 minutes, connect the power again to the wifi router, wait 5 minutes then connec the power to the printer, turn it on, star the mac and tell me please if it is now operating correctly.

Let me know the results please
