No if it's printing you are good. You should have gotten something about accepting the answer and rating. PLease take the time to do it.

Customer: replied 5 months ago.
How do I get to rate you?

I honestly don't know how that end of it works. I thought you should have gotten a pop up for it. If not don't worry about it, You thanking me and saying 5 star is ennough for me to manually request credit.

Great cause it did not pop up on my phone. Funny how the what you all rated but I have to ask how! Might want to tell them we are getting the rating card.
Customer: replied 5 months ago.

being on the phone might be the problem but I will pass it along. Thank you and enjoy the rest of your weekend.

Customer: replied 5 months ago.
I was able to print something from a website. Yay!

Congratulations!! Anytime you make a change to the connection you will need to reconnect the printer.

Customer: replied 5 months ago.
Like a new router! What else?

The router is the big one. If you change the name of your network or the password ***** you will need to reconnect. If you reset the printer then you will need to reconnect it.

Customer: replied 5 months ago.
I think I was charged $39 for control of my computer. Did you see that on your end?

Since I declined it, it should revert back to your card but if it doesn't within a couple days, contact customer service.

Your welcome.
