Let's try to proceed with that the printer wants and connect it to Wi-Fi.

  1. Start Easy Wireless Connect on your printer
  2. Make sure that the printer is turned ON.
  3. Press and hold the Menu/Wireless connect button for 3 seconds.
  4. When the following screen displays, the printer is ready to receive the information needed to connect to the wireless network.

Let me know when you have completed the steps.

Please go to https://t.ly/-AEB and download the printer software
