Printer Setup


Set up your printer over a network or USB connection by following our guided procedure. Use the printer’s Wi-Fi feature to connect it to a computer through a wireless router linked to a network source, and start printing wirelessly. Refer to the printer’s manual to learn about the sub-categories involved in the Wireless network connection.

For a wired network connection, plug an Ethernet cable into the Ethernet ports of your printer and router and then print a test page to check the connection status. To provide a USB connection, insert the printer’s USB cable to the USB slots on your printer and computer.
