The common advice...
Nope, no difference: see file. It is in Dutch. Fout means error

No, thank you. Can you tell me what it can be? Then I'll check it.
Technician: Richard, Technician replied 1 year ago

It can be either wireless, with no cable to the computer, or USB with a USB cable to the computer

Please do not guess back make sure you know which

We have an wireless connection with the printer. I have already checked the netwerkconnection on the printer and on my laptop. I switched the modem off and tried it again. No difference. On my laptop the printer is ready. So it looks as if the connection is astablished.
Technician: Richard, Technician replied 1 year ago

Customer reply replied 1 year ago
Fritz!box 5490 ES, I believe we got it in June this year.

Did you have to set it up yourself or it was all predone and just started working when you connected it?

Ask Your Own Printers Question
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
An technical employee did the installation. We had to connect the printer ourselves. And we did. It worked fine until recently.

It makes no difference. And this is taking to much time. I'm sorry, but I'm going to ask a technician in my village to come around. Thank you, ***** ***** Richard!
Technician: Richard, Technician replied 1 year ago

ok, but there is only two more causes for this, the router has a faulty DHCP lease on it, and needs to be reset, you lose internet when you do this, and if you did not set this up yourself, it has to be done onsite, or, which I believe is the case, the mainboard in the printer has faulted and this needs replacment if it is under warranty else the entire printer would.

It can only be these two causes left.

I will mark this question to remain open so If you have continued problems, or would like any additional information or assistance, please do not hesitate to let me know.

And if you can take a second to rate my service for now by clicking one of the stars at the top of the screen then submit, that would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you
