About your printer
Thank you for choosing this printer!
We've worked hard to make sure it will meet your needs.
To start using your new printer right away, use the setup materials that came with the printer, and then skim the User’s
Guide to learn how to perform basic tasks. To get the most out of your printer, read the User’s Guide carefully, and
make sure you check the latest updates on our Web site.
We're committed to delivering performance and value with our printers, and we want to make sure you're satisfied. If
you do encounter any problems along the way, one of our knowledgeable support representatives will be delighted to
help you get back on track fast. And if you find something we could do better, please let us know. After all, you are the
reason we do what we do, and your suggestions help us do it better.
Minimizing your printer's environmental impact
We are committed to protecting the environment and are continually improving our printers to reduce their
environmental impact. By selecting certain printer settings or tasks, you may be able to reduce your printer's
environmental impact even further.
Conserving energy
• Activate Eco-Mode. This feature sets the screen brightness to low and sets the printer to change to Sleep mode
after the printer is left idle for 10 minutes.
• Select the lowest Sleep timeout. The Sleep feature puts the printer in a minimum‑power standby mode after the
printer has been idle for a set amount of time (the Sleep timeout).
• Share your printer. Wireless/network printers allow you to share a single printer among multiple computers, thus
conserving energy and other resources.
Conserving paper
• Print more than one page image on one side of the paper. The Pages per Sheet feature allows you to print multiple
pages on one sheet. You can print up to 16 page images on one side of a sheet of paper.
• Print on both sides of the paper. Duplexing lets you print on both sides of the paper manually or automatically
(depending on your printer model).
• Preview print jobs before printing. Use the preview features found in the Print Preview dialog or the printer display
(depending on your printer model).
• Use recycled paper.
• Reduce the margins of documents to be printed.
• Scan and save. To avoid printing multiple copies, you can scan documents or photographs and save them to a
computer program, application, or flash drive for presentation.
About your printer
9
Conserving ink
• Use Quick Print or Draft Mode. These modes can be used to print documents using less ink than normal and are
ideal for printing documents that are mostly text.
• Use font types and font settings that require less ink. Most programs or applications let you adjust the darkness
of the colors.
• Use high‑yield cartridges. These cartridges let you print more pages.
Recycling
•
•
•
•
Recycle the product packaging.
Recycle your old printer instead of throwing it away.
Recycle paper from discarded print jobs.
Use recycled paper.
Note: Your printer may not come with some of these programs or some of the functions of these programs,
depending on the features of the printer that you purchased.

Scanning FAQ
How can I improve the quality of a scan?
• Make sure your original documents are in good condition.
• Make sure the application that receives the scanned document is appropriate. For example, if you are scanning a
photo to edit it, then make sure you choose a photo editing application to receive the scan. If you are scanning a
document to edit the text, then make sure you choose an OCR application.
• Use a high resolution.
How do I scan in black and white?
Color is the default for all scans. To scan in black and white, press
on the printer control panel.
Why am I being asked for a PIN?
PINs are a security measure used to restrict the scanned information from going into certain locations, or to keep what
is being scanned from being seen or used by others. You may be prompted to enter a PIN if the network computer you
are scanning to requires one.
To learn how PINs get assigned to network computers, see the Help for the printer software associated with your
operating system.

Setting up the printer to fax
Scenario 1: Standard telephone line
Setup 1: Printer is connected to a dedicated fax line
To connect:
Connect the cable from the wall jack to the
port of the printer.
Tips for this setup:
• You can set the printer to receive faxes automatically (Auto Answer On) or manually (Auto Answer Off).
• If you want to receive faxes automatically (Auto Answer On), then set the printer to pick up on any number of rings
that you want.

port of the printer, and then connect the answering machine to the port.
Faxing
67
To connect:
Connect the cable from the wall jack to the
port of the printer.
Tips for this setup:
• If you have only one telephone number on your line, then you need to set the printer to receive faxes automatically
(Auto Answer On).
• Set the printer to pick up calls two rings after the answering machine. For example, if the answering machine picks
up calls after four rings, then set the printer to pick up after six rings. This way, the answering machine picks up
calls first and your voice calls are received. If the call is a fax, then the printer detects the fax signal on the line and
takes over the call.
• If you subscribe to a distinctive ring service provided by your telephone company, then make sure that you set the
correct ring pattern for the printer. Otherwise, the printer will not receive faxes even if you have set it to receive
faxes automatically.
Setup 3: Printer is sharing the line with a telephone subscribed to voice mail service
To connect:
1 Connect the cable from the wall jack to the
2 Remove the protective plug from the

port of the printer, and then connect the telephone to the port.
Faxing
68
Tips for this setup:
• This setup works best if you subscribe to a distinctive ring service. If you have distinctive ring service, then make
sure that you set the correct ring pattern for the printer. Otherwise, the printer will not receive faxes even if you
have set it to receive faxes automatically.
• If you have only one telephone number on your line, then you need to set the printer to receive faxes manually
(Auto Answer Off).
When you answer the telephone and you hear fax tones, press *9* or the manual answer code on the telephone
to receive the fax.
• You can also set the printer to receive faxes automatically (Auto Answer On), but you need to turn off the voice
mail service when you are expecting a fax. This setting works best if you are using voice mail more often than fax.
Scenario 2: Digital Subscriber Line (DSL)
A Digital Subscriber Line splits your regular telephone line into two channels: voice and Internet. Telephone and fax
signals travel through the voice channel, and Internet signals pass through the other channel. This way, you can use
the same line for analog voice calls (including faxes) and digital Internet access.
To minimize interference between the two channels and ensure a quality connection, you need to install a DSL filter
for the analog devices (fax machine, telephone, answering machine) in your network. Interference causes noise and
static on the telephone, failed and poor quality faxes for the printer, and slow Internet connection on your computer.
To install a filter for the printer:
1 Connect the line port of the DSL filter to the wall jack.
2 Connect a telephone cable from the port on the back of the printer to the phone port on the DSL filter.
Faxing
69
3 To continue using a computer for Internet access, connect the computer to the DSL HPN port on the DSL filter.
4 To connect a telephone to the printer, remove the protective plug from the
port of the printer and then connect
the telephone to the port.
Scenario 3: VoIP telephone service
To connect:
1 Connect one end of a telephone cable to the port of the printer.
2 Connect the other end of the cable to the port labeled Phone Line 1 or Phone Port on the VoIP adapter.
The port labeled Phone Line 2 or Fax Port is not always active. You may need to pay extra to your VoIP provider if
you want to activate the second phone port.
3 Remove the protective plug from the
port of the printer, and then connect the telephone to the port.
Tips for this setup:
• To make sure that the phone port on the VoIP adapter is active, plug an analog telephone into the phone port, and
then listen for a dial tone. If you hear a dial tone, then the port is active.
• If you need two phone ports for your devices but do not want to pay extra, then do not plug the printer into the
second phone port. You can use a phone splitter. Plug the phone splitter into the Phone Line 1 or Phone Port, and
then plug the printer and telephone into the splitter.
Make sure you use a phone splitter, not a line splitter. To make sure that you are using the correct splitter, plug an
analog telephone into the splitter and then listen for a dial tone.
Faxing

Scenario 4: Digital telephone service through a cable provider
Setup 1: Printer is connected directly to a cable modem
Follow this setup if you normally connect your telephone to a cable modem.
To connect:
1 Connect one end of a telephone cable to the port of the printer.
2 Connect the other end of the cable to the port labeled Phone Line 1 or Phone Port on the cable modem.
The port labeled Phone Line 2 or Fax Port is not always active. You may need to pay extra to your cable provider if
you want to activate the second phone port.
3 Remove the protective plug from the
port of the printer, and then connect the telephone to the port.
Tips for this setup:
• To make sure that the phone port on the cable modem is active, plug an analog telephone into the phone port, and
then listen for a dial tone. If you hear a dial tone, then the port is active.
• If you need two phone ports for your devices but do not want to pay extra, then do not plug the printer into the
second phone port. You can use a phone splitter. Plug the phone splitter into the Phone Line 1 or Phone Port , and
then plug the printer and telephone into the splitter.
Make sure you use a phone splitter, not a line splitter. To make sure that you are using the correct splitter, plug an
analog telephone into the splitter and then listen for a dial tone.

Scenario 5: Country‑ or region‑specific setup
Different countries or regions have different types of telephone wall jacks. The standard wall jack adopted by most
countries or regions is the Registered Jack-11 (RJ-11). You need to have an RJ‑11 plug, or a telephone cable that has an
RJ‑11 connector, so you can connect a device to an RJ‑11 wall jack.
The fax ports on the back of the printer and the telephone cable that comes with the printer have RJ‑11 connectors. If
you have a different type of connector in your country or region, then you may need to use an RJ‑11 adapter.

Receiving faxes
Tips for receiving faxes
When receiving faxes:
• Make sure that the printer is on and connected to a working telephone, DSL, or VoIP line. The line is working if you
hear a dial tone.
• If you set the printer to receive faxes manually (Auto Answer Off), then make sure that the ringer volume is not set
to Off.
• If you have set the printer to receive faxes automatically (Auto Answer On), then load paper in the printer.
Receiving faxes automatically
1 Make sure that Auto Answer is on:
From the printer control panel, navigate to:
> Setup >
> Fax Setup >
> Ringing and Answering >
> Auto Answer >
> On >
2 Set the number of rings before the printer picks up incoming faxes:
a Press the arrow buttons to scroll to Pick Up On, and then press .
b Press the arrow buttons to scroll to the number of rings that you want, and then press
to save the setting.
When the number of rings you set is detected, the printer automatically receives the incoming fax.
Warning—Potential Damage: Do not touch the cables or the
and
ports while actively receiving a fax.
Faxing
82
Tips:
• If the printer is sharing the line with other analog devices (telephone, answering machine), then set the printer to
pick up calls two rings after the answering machine. For example, if the answering machine picks up calls after four
rings, then set the printer to pick up after six rings. This way, the answering machine picks up calls first and your
voice calls are received. If the call is a fax, then the printer detects the fax signal on the line and takes over the call.
If the printer is on a dedicated fax line, then you may set the printer to pick up on any number of rings.
• If you have multiple numbers on a single line, or if you subscribe to a distinctive ring service provided by your
telephone company, then make sure that you set the correct ring pattern for the printer. Otherwise, the printer
will not receive faxes even if you have set it to receive faxes automatically.
Receiving faxes manually
1 Turn off Auto Answer:
From the printer control panel, navigate to:
> Setup >
> Fax Setup >
> Ringing and Answering >
> Auto Answer >
> Off >
2 When the telephone rings and you hear fax tones when you pick up the handset, press
on the printer or *9* on
the telephone attached to the printer.
Warning—Potential Damage: Do not touch the cables or the
and
ports while actively receiving a fax.
Tips:
• The default code for answering faxes manually is *9*, but for increased security, you can change it to a number
that only you know. You can enter up to 7 characters for your code. The valid characters are the digits 0–9 and the
characters # and *.
• Make sure that the telephone is plugged into the
to the wall jack through the
port on the back of the printer and that the printer is connected
port.
Faxing FAQ
If I skipped the fax setup initially, do I need to run the installer again to set up the
fax?
You do not need to run the installer again. You can set up and configure the fax through the fax software that was
installed with the printer software.
1 Connect the printer to the telephone line. For more information, see “Setting up the printer to fax” on page 65.
2 Configure the fax settings using the fax software. To access the fax software:
For Windows users
a Click or Start.
b Click All Programs or Programs, and then select the printer program folder from the list.
c Click Printer Home > Fax >Set up the printer to fax.
The Printer Setup Wizard opens.
d Run the wizard. Make sure you select the correct telephone service and connection. The wizard configures
optimal fax settings based on your connection.

For Macintosh users
a From the Applications folder in the Finder, or from the Finder desktop, double-click the printer folder.
b Double-click Printer Settings, and then configure the fax settings.
What is a splitter and what type of splitter should I use?
If there are limited wall jacks in your home or limited ports on your adapter, then you can use a phone splitter. A splitter
splits the telephone signal and allows you to connect multiple devices to the wall jack. It has two or more ports where
you can plug the devices. Do not use a line splitter.
To make sure that you are using the correct splitter, plug an analog telephone into the splitter and then listen for a dial
tone.
What is my fax number?
In most cases, your telephone number is also your fax number. If you subscribe to the Distinctive Ring Pattern Detection
(DRPD) service offered by telephone companies, then your fax number is the number that you assigned to the printer.
Make sure that you enter the correct distinctive ring pattern for that number in the fax software or in the Fax Setup
menu of the printer control panel.
If you have more than one telephone line, then make sure that you enter the number for the line on which the printer
is connected.
What is my dialing prefix?
The dialing prefix is the number or series of numbers that you press before you can dial the actual fax number or
telephone number. If the printer is in an office setting or in a private branch exchange, then this can be a specific number
that you need to press so you can make a call outside the office. This can also be a country code or an area code that
you need to enter if you are sending faxes outside of town. This can be very useful if you frequently send faxes to the
same country or area. When you set the dialing prefix in the utility, the printer automatically inputs the prefix when
you dial the fax number or telephone number.
You can enter up to 8 characters as your dialing prefix. The valid characters are the numbers 0–9, the letters P and W
(uppercase and lowercase), and the characters pound (#) and star (*). If you are using the fax software to enter the dial
prefix, then you may also include the characters minus and comma.
Notes:
• Some of these characters may not be available, depending on the printer you purchased.
• Characters may vary depending on whether you are using the printer control panel or the computer keyboard.
When do I need to set Auto Answer to On?
Auto Answer is set to On by default, which lets the printer receive faxes automatically.
If the printer is connected to the same telephone line with an answering machine, then you must set Auto Answer to
On so that you can receive both your voice calls and your faxes. Make sure that the answering machine is set to pick
up on fewer rings than the rings set in the printer. This lets the other devices pick up the voice calls first. If an incoming
call is a fax, the printer can detect fax signals on the line and takes the call.
Faxing
84
How many rings should I set?
If the printer is sharing a line with an answering machine, then set the printer to pick up after a greater number of rings
than the answering machine. For example, if the answering machine picks up calls after four rings, then set the printer
to pick up after six rings. This way, the answering machine picks up calls first and your voice calls are received. If the
call is a fax, then the printer detects the fax signal on the line and takes over the call.
If the printer is on a dedicated fax line, then you may set the printer to pick up on any number of rings that you want.
How do I set the distinctive ring for the printer?
Setting the correct ring is important if you subscribe to the Distinctive Ring Pattern Detection (DRPD) feature offered
by telephone companies. This feature allows you to have multiple telephone numbers on one telephone line. Each
telephone number has a designated ring pattern (All Rings, Single Ring Only, Double Ring Only, Triple Ring Only, Single
or Double Rings Only, Single or Triple Rings Only, Double or Triple Rings Only). The different ring patterns let you know
what telephone number was dialed, and what device you should use to answer the call.
Assign one of your telephone numbers to the printer as the fax number, and then set the printer to answer the ring
pattern of that number. If the pattern is set incorrectly, then the printer rings, but it never receives the fax.
Distinctive Ring is also called Ident-a-Call, Smart Ring, Teen Ring, RingMaster, or IdentaRing.
1 From the printer control panel, navigate to:
> Setup >
> Fax Setup >
> Ringing and Answering >
> Ring Pattern >
2 Press the arrow buttons to scroll to the ring pattern you want, and then press
.
How can I check the dial tone?
A dial tone lets you know if the telephone line is working or if the printer is properly connected to the telephone line.
If you encounter problems sending and receiving faxes, then make sure you can hear a dial tone on the line and through
the printer.
Make sure the telephone line and the wall jack are working
1 Plug an analog telephone into the wall jack.
2 Listen for a dial tone through the telephone handset.
If you hear a dial tone, then the telephone line and the wall jack are working.
If you do not hear a dial tone, plug the analog telephone into a second wall jack, and then listen for a dial tone. If
you hear a dial tone, then the telephone line is working but the first wall jack is not working.
Make sure the printer is connected properly to the telephone line
1 While the printer is connected to a telephone line through the port on the back of the printer, plug an analog
telephone into the
port of the printer.
2 Listen for a dial tone.
If you hear a dial tone, then the telephone line is working and properly connected to the printer.
If you do not hear a dial tone through both the wall jack and the printer, then see the “Fax troubleshooting checklist”
on page 145.
Faxing
85
How do I adjust the speaker volume on the printer?
Listen to the dial tone to check if the telephone line is working and to check if the cables and devices are connected
properly in your telephone network. If you set the printer to receive faxes manually, then make sure that you set the
ringer volume loud enough for you to hear it.
Adjusting the dialing volume
1 From the printer control panel, navigate to:
> Setup >
> Fax Setup >
> Dialing and Sending >
> Speaker Volume >
2 Press the up or down arrow buttons to select a dial volume setting, and then press
.
Adjusting the ringer volume
1 From the printer control panel, navigate to:
> Setup >
> Fax Setup >
> Ringing and Answering >
> Ringer Volume >
2 Press the up or down arrow buttons to select a ringer volume setting, and then press
.
How can I make sure that fax calls go to the printer and voice calls go to the
answering machine?
To make sure the printer picks up incoming faxes, set Auto Answer to On, and then set the printer to pick up after a
greater number of rings than the answering machine. For example, if the answering machine picks up calls after four
rings, then set the printer to pick up after six rings. This way, the answering machine picks up calls first and your voice
calls are received. If the call is a fax, then the printer detects the fax signal on the line and takes over the call.
What settings work best with voice mail service?
Voice mail and fax can share the same telephone line if you subscribe to a distinctive ring service offered by your
telephone company. This feature allows you to have multiple telephone numbers on one telephone line. Each telephone
number has a designated ring pattern (All Rings, Single Ring Only, Double Ring Only, Triple Ring Only, Single or Double
Rings Only, Single or Triple Rings Only, Double or Triple Rings Only). The different ring patterns let you know which
telephone number was dialed, and which device you should use to answer the call.
If you do not have distinctive ring service, then set the printer to receive faxes manually (Auto Answer Off). This setting
lets you receive both voice calls and fax calls, but works best if you use voice mail more often. You need to turn off
voice mail whenever you are expecting a fax.
How do I change the resolution of the documents that I fax?
The resolution, or fax quality, of the documents that you send may affect fax transmission. The receiving fax machine
may not support high resolutions and may not be able to receive your fax. You can fix this by enabling Auto Fax
Conversion, but the automatic conversion may result in an unreadable fax, especially if the original document is already
blurred.
Choose a fax quality that best suits the capacity of the receiving fax machine and the quality of the original document.

Installing the printer on a wireless network
Wireless network compatibility
Your printer may contain an IEEE 802.11b, IEEE 802.11g, or IEEE 802.11n wireless print server. Your printer is compatible
with IEEE 802.11 b/g/n routers that are Wi-Fi certified.
Note: If your printer has an IEEE 802.11g wireless print server and you are having issues with an n router, then verify
with your router manufacturer that the current mode setting is compatible with g devices, as this setting varies
depending on the router brand or model.
Supported network security options
The printer supports three wireless security options: WPA2/WPA, WEP, and no security.
WPA2/WPA
WPA (Wi-Fi Protected Access) and WPA2 (Wi-Fi Protected Access 2) offer stronger wireless network security than WEP.
WPA2 and WPA are similar types of security. WPA2 uses a more complex encryption method and is more secure than
WPA. Both WPA2 and WPA use a series of characters, called the WPA pre‑shared key or passphrase, to protect wireless
networks from unauthorized access.
WPA2/WPA passphrases must be:
• Exactly 64 hexadecimal characters. Hexadecimal characters are A–F, a–f, and 0–9.
or
• From 8 to 63 ASCII characters. ASCII characters are letters, numbers, punctuation, and symbols found on a keyboard.
ASCII characters in a WPA passphrase are case-sensitive.
Every device on the wireless network must use the same WPA passphrase. WPA security is an option only on
infrastructure networks with access points (wireless routers) and network cards that support WPA. Most newer wireless
network equipment also offer WPA2 security as an option.
Note: If your network uses WPA2 or WPA security, then select WPA Personal when you are prompted to select the
type of security your network uses.
WEP
WEP (Wired Equivalent Privacy) is the most basic and the weakest type of wireless security. WEP security relies on a
series of characters called the WEP key.
Every device on the wireless network must use the same WEP key. WEP security can be used on both ad hoc and
infrastructure networks.
Networking
90
A valid WEP key has:
• Exactly 10 or 26 hexadecimal characters. Hexadecimal characters are A–F, a–f, and 0–9.
or
• Exactly 5 or 13 ASCII characters. ASCII characters are letters, numbers, punctuation, and symbols found on a
keyboard.
No Security
It is not recommended to use no security at all on a home wireless network. Using no security means that anyone within
range of your wireless network can use your network resources—including Internet access— if your wireless network
is connected to the Internet. The range of your wireless network may extend far beyond the walls of your home, allowing
access to your network from the street or from your neighbors’ homes.
Printing a network setup page
A network setup page lists the configuration settings of the printer, including the IP address and MAC address of the
printer.
1 Load plain paper.
2 From the printer control panel, navigate to:
> Setup >
> Network Setup >
> Print Network Setup Page >
Information you will need during wireless setup
To set up the printer for wireless printing, you need to know the following:
• The name of your wireless network, which is also known as the SSID (Service Set Identifier)
• If encryption was used to secure your network
• The security key (either a WEP key or WPA/WPA2 preshared key/passphrase)
To find the WPA/WPA2 preshared key/passphrase for the wireless network, see the documentation that came with
the access point (wireless router), see the Web page associated with the access point, or consult your system support
person.
If your access point is using WEP security, then the WEP key should be:
• Exactly 10 or 26 hexadecimal characters
or
• Exactly 5 or 13 ASCII characters
If your access point is using WPA or WPA2 security, then the WPA/WPA2 preshared key/passphrase should be:
• Exactly 64 hexadecimal characters
or
• From 8 to 63 ASCII characters
Notes:
• Hexadecimal characters are A–F, a–f, and 0–9.
• ASCII characters are letters, numbers, and symbols found on a keyboard. ASCII characters in a WPA/WPA2
preshared key/passphrase are case‑sensitive.
Networking

If your wireless network is not using security, then you will not have a security key.
Note: If you do not know the SSID of the network that your computer is connected to, then launch the wireless
utility of the computer network adapter and look for the network name. If you cannot find the SSID or the security
information for your network, then see the documentation that came with the access point, or contact your system
support person.
Information you will need during advanced wireless setup
The Wireless Setup Utility does not detect the wireless network SSID for you during advanced wireless setup. You must
know the following information before configuring the wireless printer settings manually:
Wireless Mode
Check your wireless network type:
Infrastructure—All devices on a wireless network communicate with each other through an access point (wireless
router).
Ad Hoc—Network devices communicate directly with each other without the use of centralized security or access
point. Ad hoc mode may be available only in select printer models or operating systems.
Note: Infrastructure is the recommended network configuration because of its faster transfer speeds, better security
options, and ease of configuration.
Network Name (SSID)
This is the identifying name that distinguishes a network from other networks in the area.
Channel
Auto is selected by default and cannot be changed if the network is configured in infrastructure mode.
Notes:
• If the network is set up in ad hoc mode, then select the channel that other devices in the network are using.
All devices in an ad hoc network must use the same channel to communicate with each other.
• The printer can communicate on only one wireless network at a time. Configuring the printer for an ad hoc
wireless network will keep it from working on any other wireless network, either ad hoc or infrastructure.
Authentication
Determine if you have an infrastructure or ad hoc setup, and then check the corresponding authentication type.
Note: Some authentication types may be available only in select printer models or operating systems.

Networking FAQ
What is Wi‑Fi Protected Setup?
Wi‑Fi Protected Setup (WPS) is a simple and secure configuration that allows you to establish a wireless home network
and enable network security without requiring prior knowledge of Wi‑Fi technology. It is no longer necessary to
configure the network name (SSID) and WEP key or WPA passphrase for network devices.
Note: WPS supports only networks that communicate through access points (wireless routers).
Networking
104
The printer supports the following methods in connecting to a wireless network:
• Personal Identification Number (PIN)—A PIN on the printer is entered into the wireless settings of the access point.
• Push Button Configuration (PBC)—Buttons on both the printer and the access point are pushed within a given period
of time.
Look for any of these identifier marks to check if your access point is WPS certified:
You can find these WPS logos on the side, back, or top of your access point.
For more information on accessing the wireless settings and determining the WPS capability of your access point, see
the documentation that came with the access point or contact your system support person.
Where do I find my WEP key or WPA/WPA2 preshared key/passphrase?
• Contact your system support person.
– The person who set up your network usually keeps the WEP key or WPA/WPA2 preshared key/passphrase.
– If your wireless network was set up by your Internet Service Provider (ISP), then you might find the information
in the documentation they provided.
• See the documentation that came with your access point (wireless router).
If your access point is using the default settings, then you can find the information in the documentation.
• View the security settings on the access point.
1 Open a Web browser, and then type the IP address of the access point in the address field. Press Enter.
Notes:
– To obtain the IP address of the access point, see the documentation that came with it or contact your
system support person.
– If you are using a proxy server, then temporarily disable it to load the Web page correctly.
2 Enter the user name and password for the access point when prompted.
Note: The WEP key or WPA/WPA2 preshared key/passphrase is not the same as the password for the
access point. The password lets you access the access point settings. The WEP key or WPA/WPA2 preshared
key/passphrase allows printers and computers to join your wireless network.
3 Look for the WEP key or WPA/WPA2 preshared key/passphrase.
What is an SSID?
A Service Set Identifier (SSID) is the name that identifies a wireless network. All devices on the network must know the
SSID of the wireless network, or they will not be able to communicate with each other. Usually, the wireless network
broadcasts the SSID to allow wireless devices in the area to connect to it. Sometimes, the SSID is not broadcast for
security reasons.
If the SSID of your wireless network is not broadcast, then it cannot be detected automatically and will not show up in
the list of available wireless networks. You must enter the network information manually in this situation.
Networking
105
An SSID can contain up to 32 alphanumeric characters. Alphanumeric characters are a combination of alphabetic (letters
A to Z) and numeric (numbers 0 to 9) characters.
Where do I find my SSID?
• View the settings on the access point (wireless router).
Most access points have a built‑in Web server that can be accessed using a Web browser.
• Check your computer to see if a program was installed with your wireless network adapter.
Many network adapters provide a software application that allows you to view the wireless settings of your
computer, including your SSID.
If you are unable to locate your SSID using either of these methods, then contact your system support person.
What is a network?
A network is a collection of devices such as computers, printers, Ethernet hubs, access points, and routers connected
together for communication through cables or through a wireless connection. A network can be wired, wireless, or
designed to have both wired and wireless devices.
How do I find out what type of security my network is using?
• Contact your system support person.
The person who set up your network usually keeps your wireless information.
• See the documentation that came with your access point (wireless router).
• Check the characters of the password that you use to access your wireless network.
If you are not using a password, then choose None or No Security.
Characters
Security type
Exactly 10 or 26 hexadecimal characters
WEP

Notes:
– Hexadecimal characters are A–F, a–f, and 0–9.
– ASCII characters are letters, numbers, and symbols found on a keyboard. ASCII characters in a WPA/WPA2
preshared key/passphrase are case‑sensitive.
• View the security settings on the access point.

Note: The WEP key or WPA/WPA2 preshared key/passphrase is not the same as the password for the
access point. The password lets you access the access point settings. The WEP key or WPA/WPA2 preshared
key/passphrase allows printers and computers to join your wireless network.
3 Look for the WEP key or WPA/WPA2 preshared key/passphrase.
How are home networks configured?
For desktop computers, laptops, and printers to communicate with each other over a network, they must be connected
by cables and/or have wireless network adapters built in or installed in them.
There are many different ways a network can be set up. Four common examples appear below.
Note: The printers in the following diagrams represent printers with internal print servers built into them so that
they can communicate over a network.
Wireless network examples
Scenario 1: Mixed wired and wireless connections on a network with Internet access
• All computers and printers connect to the network through a router with Ethernet and wireless capabilities.
• Some computers and printers connect wirelessly to the router; others connect over a wired connection.
• The network is connected to the Internet through a DSL or cable modem.
Networking
107
Scenario 2: Wireless network with Internet access
• All computers and printers connect to the network using a wireless access point or wireless router.
• The wireless access point connects the network to the Internet through a DSL or cable modem.
Scenario 3: Wireless network with no Internet access
• Computers and printers connect to the network using a wireless access point.
• The network has no connection to the Internet.
Scenario 4: Computer connected wirelessly to a printer without Internet access
• A computer is directly connected to a printer without going through a wireless router.
• This configuration is referred to as an ad hoc network.
• The network has no connection to the Internet.
Note: Most computers can connect to only one wireless network at a time. If you access the Internet over a wireless
connection, you will lose Internet access if you are connected to an ad hoc network.

What is a USB cable?
A Universal Serial Bus (USB) cable is primarily used to connect a USB device to a host. Common hosts include computers
and video game consoles. Through the USB port and cable, it is possible to connect computer peripherals such as mouse
devices, keyboards, digital cameras, printers, personal media players, flash drives, and external hard drives. For many
of those devices, USB has become the standard connection method.
Why do I need a USB cable?
When setting up the printer on your wireless network, the printer will need to temporarily connect to a computer using
the USB cable. This temporary connection may be used to set up the wireless settings of the printer.
Note: A USB cable is not necessary when connecting to a wireless network through Wi‑Fi Protected Setup (WPS).
How do I attach the USB cable?
The USB cable attaches to a USB port on the computer and to the square connector on the back of the printer. This
connection allows you to configure the printer for a network or local (USB) installation.
The USB port on the computer and on the printer are each marked with
.
Note: Do not connect the USB cable until prompted to do.
1 If the USB port at the back of the printer is covered by a sticker, then make sure to remove it.
2 Firmly plug the square end of the USB cable into the back of the printer.
Networking

3 Firmly plug the rectangular end of the USB cable into the USB port of the computer.
4 Follow the instructions on the computer screen.
How are infrastructure and ad hoc networks different?
Wireless networks can operate in one of two modes: infrastructure or ad hoc.
In infrastructure mode, all devices on a wireless network communicate with each other through an access point (wireless
router).
In ad hoc mode, a computer with a wireless network adapter communicates directly with a printer equipped with a
wireless print server.

Finding the signal strength
The signal strength tells you how strongly the computer or printer is receiving the wireless signal from the wireless
network. Poor signal quality could affect connectivity during configuration.
Checking computer connectivity
1 From your computer system tray, click the wireless icon that corresponds to the software managing your wireless
network adapter.
2 Check the signal quality.
Checking printer connectivity
• From the printer, print a network setup page.
In the Wireless section, look for Quality.
• View the signal strength from the printer control panel.
Navigate to:
> Setup > > Network Setup >
> View Signal Quality >
> Wireless 802.11 b/g/n >
> Network Connection Setup >
> Wireless >
To improve signal quality, remove sources of interference or move wireless devices closer to the access point (wireless
router).
How can I improve wireless signal strength?
A common reason wireless printers fail to communicate over a network is poor wireless signal quality. If the signal is
too weak, too distorted, or blocked by an object, then it cannot carry information between the access point (wireless
router) and the printer.
If you think signal strength is a problem between your access point and the printer, then try one or more of the following:
Notes:
• The solutions below are for infrastructure networks. If you are using an ad hoc network, then adjust the
computer when the solution suggests adjusting the access point.
• Ad hoc networks have a much shorter range than infrastructure networks. Try moving the printer closer to the
computer if they seem to have trouble communicating.
CHECK THE WIRELESS SIGNAL QUALITY
To determine if the printer is receiving a strong signal from the access point, print a network setup page. The Quality
field indicates the relative strength of the wireless signal the printer is receiving. Drops in signal strength can be
intermittent, however, and although the signal quality appears high, it may drop during certain conditions. If the
signal quality is listed as good or excellent, then another factor is causing the problem.
For more information on printing a network setup page, see the User's Guide.
Networking
111
MOVE THE PRINTER CLOSER TO THE ACCESS POINT
If the printer is too far away from the access point, then it will not be able to communicate with other devices on
the network. For most indoor wireless networks, the maximum distance between the access point and the printer
is approximately 100 feet (30 meters). This distance could be longer or shorter, depending upon the layout of the
network and the limitations of the access point.
REMOVE OBSTACLES BETWEEN THE ACCESS POINT AND THE PRINTER
The wireless signal from your access point will pass through most objects. Most walls, floors, furniture, and other
objects will not block the wireless signal. However, there are materials that are too dense for the signal to pass
through, such as objects containing metal and concrete. Arrange your printer and access point so that the signal is
not blocked by such objects.
REMOVE SOURCES OF INTERFERENCE
Other types of radio frequencies can cause problems with the wireless signal on your network, resulting to printing
issues that seem to come and go.
• Turn off potential sources of interference where possible.
• Avoid using microwave ovens, cordless phones (but not cellular phones), baby monitors, almost any kitchen
appliance, wireless surveillance equipment, or any appliance containing a motor when printing over your wireless
network.
• If another wireless network is operating in the vicinity, then change the wireless channel on the access point.
• Do not place your access point on a printer or other electronic device. Such devices can also interfere with the
wireless signal.
ARRANGE THE NETWORK TO REDUCE SIGNAL ABSORPTION
Even when the wireless signal is able to pass through an object, it is slightly weakened. If it passes through too many
objects, then it can be significantly weakened. All objects absorb part of the wireless signal when it passes through
them, and certain types of objects absorb enough to cause communications problems. Place your access point as
high in the room as possible to avoid signal absorption.
How can I make sure my computer and printer are connected to the same
wireless network?
If the printer is not on the same wireless network as the computer, then you will not be able to print wirelessly. The
SSID of the printer must match the SSID of the computer, if the computer is already connected to the wireless network.
For Windows users
1 Obtain the SSID of the network that the computer is connected to:
a Type the IP address of your access point (wireless router) in the address field of your Web browser.
If you do not know the IP address of the access point:
1 Click , or click Start and then click Run.
2 In the Start Search or Run box, type cmd.
3 Press Enter, or click OK.
Networking
112
4 Type ipconfig, and then press Enter. Check the Wireless Network Connection section:
• The “Default Gateway” entry is typically the access point.
• The IP address appears as four sets of numbers separated by periods, such as 192.168.2.134.
b
c
d
e
Type the user name and password of the router when prompted.
Click OK.
In the Wireless settings section, look for the SSID.
Write down the SSID.
Note: Make sure you copy it exactly, including any capital letters.
2 Obtain the SSID of the network that the printer is connected to:
a From the printer, print a network setup page.
b In the Wireless section, look for SSID.
3 Compare the SSID of the computer and SSID of the printer.
If the SSIDs are the same, then the computer and the printer are connected to the same wireless network.
If the SSIDs are not the same, then run the utility again to set up the printer on the wireless network used by the
computer.
For Macintosh users with an AirPort base station
In Mac OS X version 10.5 or later
1 From the Apple menu, navigate to:
System Preferences > Network > AirPort
The SSID of the network that the computer is connected to is displayed in the Network Name menu.

• Store the SSID and the WEP key or WPA passphrase in a safe place for future reference.
Can I use my printer on a USB and a network connection at the same time?
Yes, the printer supports a simultaneous USB and network connection. The printer can be configured in the following
ways:
• Locally attached (connected to a computer using a USB cable)
• Wireless network
• Wireless network and locally attached simultaneously
What is a MAC address?
A Media Access Control (MAC) address is a 48‑bit identifier associated with the hardware of network equipment. The
MAC address may also be called the physical address because it is connected to the hardware of a device instead of its
software. The MAC address is displayed as a hexadecimal number in this format: 01-23-45-67-89-AB.
While it is possible to change the MAC address of a network device, it is not common practice to do so. For this reason,
MAC addresses are considered permanent. IP addresses are easily changed, so MAC addresses are a more reliable
method of identifying a specific device on a network.
Routers with security capabilities may allow filtering of MAC addresses on networks. This allows a managed list of
devices to access the network, identified by their MAC addresses, as well as prevent access from unwanted devices. If
your network uses MAC address filtering, then be sure to add the MAC address of the printer to the list of allowed
devices.
How do I find the MAC address?
Network devices have a unique hardware identification number to distinguish them from other devices on the network.
This is called the MAC (Media Access Control) address. Other devices sometimes use a type of MAC address called
Universally Administered Address (UAA).
Networking
114
When installing the printer on a network, make sure you select the printer with the correct MAC address.
The MAC address of the internal print server is a series of letters and numbers.
Notes:
• A list of MAC addresses can be set on an access point (wireless router) so that only devices with matching MAC
addresses are allowed to operate on the network. This is called MAC filtering. If MAC filtering is enabled in your
access point and you want to add a printer to your network, then the MAC address of the printer must be
included in the MAC filter list.
• If you are using an AirPort base station, then the MAC address may be referred to as AirPort ID, and MAC
address filtering may be accessed through MAC Address Access Control.
What is an IP address?
An IP address is a unique number used by devices (such as a wireless printer, computer, or access point (wireless router))
on an IP network to locate and communicate with each other. Devices on an IP network can communicate with each
other only if they have unique and valid IP addresses. A unique IP address means no two devices on the same network
have the same IP address.
An IP address is a group of four numbers separated by periods. An example of an IP address is 123.123.123.123.
What is TCP/IP?
Networks are able to function when computers, printers, and other devices are able to send data to each other, either
through cables or wireless signals. This transfer of data is made possible by sets of data transmission rules called
protocols. A protocol can be thought of as a language that has rules so that participants can effectively communicate
with each other.
Different types of networks use different protocols, but Transmission Control Protocol/Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) is the
most popular. TCP/IP is used to send data over the Internet as well as over most corporate and home networks.
Networking
115
Every device on a network that uses TCP/IP must have an IP address. IP addresses are essentially unique computer
names in a numeric format, used to transfer data around a network. IP addresses allow TCP/IP to confirm requests for,
and receipt of, data by various devices on the network.
How do I locate IP addresses?
For Windows users
1 Click
, or click Start and then click Run.
2 In the Start Search or Run box, type cmd.
3 Press Enter, or click OK.
4 Type ipconfig, and then press Enter.
The IP address appears as four sets of numbers separated by periods, such as 192.168.0.100.
For Macintosh users
1 From the Apple menu, navigate to:
About This Mac > More Info
2 From the Contents pane, choose Network.
3 If you are connected over a wireless network, then choose AirPort from the Active Services list.
Locating the printer IP address
• From the printer, print a network setup page.
In the TCP/IP section, look for Address.
• View the printer settings.
From the printer control panel, navigate to:
> Setup > > Network Setup >
> IP Address >
> Wireless 802.11 b/g/n >
> Network Connection Setup >
> TCP/IP >
How are IP addresses assigned?
An IP address may be assigned automatically by the network using DHCP. Once the printer is set up on a computer, the
computer sends all print jobs across the network to the printer using this address.
If the IP address is not automatically assigned, you will be asked during wireless setup to manually enter an address
and other network information after selecting your printer from the available list.
What is a key index?
An access point (wireless router) can be configured with as many as four WEP keys. Only one key is used on the network
at a time, however. The keys are numbered, and the number of a key is referred to as its key index. All devices on the
wireless network must be configured to use the same key index when multiple WEP keys are configured on the access
point.
Select the same key index on your printer as you are using on your access point.
Networking
116
What is the difference between Guided and Advanced setup?
Use Guided setup if:
• The printer and the computer communicate on the same wireless network.
• You want the Wireless Setup Utility to automatically detect the network for you.
• You want to connect your printer to the wireless network using Wi‑Fi Protected Setup (WPS).
Use Advanced setup if:
• The printer and the installing computer are not on the same wireless network, or if the computer does not have
wireless access.
•

For detailed descriptions of common terms and tasks, see the following:
• “Setting up the printer to fax” on page 65
• “Faxing FAQ” on page 82
Fax troubleshooting checklist
If you encounter problems sending and receiving faxes, then check the connection first:
1 Check for a dial tone on the telephone line by plugging an analog telephone into the wall jack, DSL filter, VoIP device,
or cable modem where you connected the printer. Make sure you plug the telephone into the same port.
If you do not hear a dial tone, then contact your line provider.
2 While the printer is connected to the telephone line, check for a dial tone by plugging an analog telephone into the
port of the printer.
If you do not hear a dial tone, then use the checklist below. Listen for a dial tone after checking each item.
If you hear a dial tone but still have problems sending and receiving faxes, then see the other topics in this section.
Connection checklist
• Make sure that the printer and other devices on the line (if applicable) are set up and configured correctly according
to your setup scenario.
• Make sure that the cables are connected to the correct ports.
• Make sure that the cables are securely plugged in.
Check the cable connections for the following hardware, if applicable:
Power supply Answering machine Cable modem Splitter
Telephone
VoIP adapter
DSL filter
RJ‑11 adapter
• If the printer is connected to a Digital Subscriber Line, then make sure you are using a DSL filter for the printer.
• If the printer is connected to a VoIP adapter or cable modem, then make sure that the printer is plugged into the
first phone port.
• If you are using a splitter, then make sure that you are using a phone splitter. Do not use a line splitter.
Troubleshooting
146
Cannot send faxes
If the “Fax troubleshooting checklist” does not solve the problem, then try one or more of the following:
MAKE SURE THAT YOU HAVE REGISTERED YOUR USER INFORMATION IN THE PRINTER
If you did not enter your user information during initial setup, then enter your fax name and fax number. In some
countries, you cannot send a fax without entering your fax name or company name. Some fax machines also block
unknown faxes or faxes without sender information.
DECREASE THE TRANSMISSION SPEED OF THE FAX MODEM
The modem of the printer can transmit data at 33,600 bps. This is the maximum speed at which the printer can send
and receive faxes. It is not necessary, however, to set the modem to its fastest transmission capability. The speed of
the modem of the receiving fax machine must match or be greater than the speed at which you are sending your
fax. Otherwise, your fax will not be received.
1 From the printer control panel, navigate to:
> Setup >
> Fax Setup >
> Dialing and Sending >
2 Select a sending speed, and then press
> Max Send Speed >
.
ENABLE ERROR CORRECTION
Errors and blurs may appear in the faxed document if there is too much noise on the line. This option enables the
printer to transmit the bad blocks of data again and correct the errors. When a fax has too many errors, the fax may
be rejected by the receiving fax machine.
1 From the printer control panel, navigate to:
> Setup >
> Fax Setup >
> Dialing and Sending >
> Error Correction >
2 Check to see if error correction is set to On.
If it is not set to On, then press the arrow buttons to select On, and then press
.
ENABLE AUTOMATIC FAX CONVERSION
If the receiving fax machine does not support color fax, then this option automatically converts the outgoing color
fax to black and white. It also automatically reduces the resolution of the fax to a resolution that the receiving machine
can support.
1 From the printer control panel, navigate to:
> Setup >
> Fax Setup >
> Dialing and Sending >
> Auto Fax Convert >
2 Check to see if automatic fax conversion is set to On.
If it is not set to On, then press the arrow buttons to select On, and then press
.
MAKE SURE THAT THE DIAL PREFIX SETTING IS CORRECT
The dialing prefix is the number or series of numbers that you press before you can dial the actual fax number or
telephone number. If the printer is in an office setting or in a private branch exchange, this can be a specific number
that you need to press so you can make a call outside the office.
Troubleshooting

2 Press the arrow buttons to create or modify the prefix.
3 If the prefix is not correct, enter the correct prefix, and then press
.
Cannot receive faxes
If the “Fax troubleshooting checklist” does not solve the problem, then try one or more of the following:
MAKE SURE THAT YOU HAVE CONFIGURED THE CORRECT SETTINGS FOR YOUR SETUP
The fax settings depend on whether the printer is connected to its own fax line or shares the line with other devices.
If the printer is sharing the telephone line with an answering machine, then make sure that the following are set:
• Auto Answer is On.
• The printer picks up on a greater number of rings than the answering machine.
• The printer picks up on the correct distinctive ring (if you subscribe to a distinctive ring service).
If the printer is sharing the telephone line with a telephone subscribed to voice mail, then make sure that the following
are set:
• Auto Answer is Off (if you have only one number on the telephone line).
• The printer picks up on the correct distinctive ring (if you subscribe to a distinctive ring service).
MAKE SURE THAT THE PRINTER IS CONNECTED TO AN ANALOG PORT
The printer is an analog device. If you are using a PBX system, then make sure that the printer is connected to an
analog port on the PBX. You may need a digital line converter that converts digital signals into analog signals.
MAKE SURE THAT THE PRINTER MEMORY IS NOT FULL
The printer saves an incoming fax to the printer memory before it prints the fax. If the printer runs out of ink or runs
out of paper while receiving the fax, then the printer saves the fax so you can print it later. However, if the printer
memory is full, then the printer may not be able to receive more incoming faxes. An error message appears on the
display when the printer memory is full. Resolve the error to free up space in the printer memory.
MAKE SURE THAT FAX FORWARDING IS DISABLED
1 From the printer control panel, navigate to:
> Setup >
> Fax Setup >
> Ringing and Answering >
2 Press the arrow buttons to scroll to Off, and then press
> Fax Forward >
.
INCREASE THE RINGER VOLUME
If you set the printer to receive faxes manually (Auto Answer Off), then increase the ringer volume.
Troubleshooting
148
MAKE SURE THAT YOU HAVE THE CORRECT MANUAL ANSWER CODE
If you set the printer to receive faxes manually (Auto Answer Off), then you need to press the correct code when a
fax comes in so that the printer can receive it.
1 From the printer control panel, navigate to:
> Setup >
> Fax Setup >
> Ringing and Answering >
> Manual Pickup Code >
2 Copy the manual answer code that appears on the display.
Note: To increase the security, you can change your manual pickup code to a number that only you know. You can
enter up to 7 characters for your code. The valid characters are the digits 0–9 and the characters # and *.
Cannot run the fax software
The printer must be connected to a telephone, DSL, VoIP, or cable service before you can configure the fax settings in
the fax software.
MAKE SURE THE PRINTER IS CONNECTED TO A TELEPHONE LINE
You need to connect the printer to your telephone line (through a standard wall jack, a DSL filter, a VoIP adapter, or
a cable modem) before you can open the fax software and configure the fax settings.

Communication with printer lost when connected to Virtual Private Network
(VPN)
You will lose your connection to a wireless printer on your local network when connected to most Virtual Private
Networks (VPNs).
Most Virtual Private Networks allow computers to communicate with only the VPN and no other network at the same
time. Disconnect from the VPN before installing the driver on the computer or before running the wireless setup on
the computer.
To check if the computer is currently connected to a VPN, open your VPN Client software, and then check your VPN
connections. If you do not have a VPN Client software installed, then check the connections manually using the Windows
VPN Client.
If you would like to have the ability to connect to your local network and to a VPN at the same time, then request the
system support person for the VPN to allow split tunneling. Be aware that some organizations will not allow split
tunneling due to security or technical concerns.
If you want to connect only to a VPN, then the documents you want to print will not be printed until you have ended
the VPN session. If you want to continue printing while connected to a VPN, then connect the printer to the computer
using a USB cable. For more information, see the User’s Guide.

Wireless troubleshooting checklist
Before beginning to troubleshoot the wireless printer, verify the following:
• The printer, the computer, and the access point (wireless router) are all plugged in and turned on.
• The wireless network is working properly.
Try accessing other computers on your wireless network.
If your network has Internet access, then try connecting to the Internet over a wireless connection.
• Your SSID is correct.
Print a network setup page to verify the SSID the printer is using.
If you are not sure if your SSID is correct, then run the wireless setup again.
• Your WEP key or WPA passphrase is correct (if your network is secure).
Log on to the access point and check the security settings.
A security key is like a password. All devices on the same wireless network using WEP, WPA, or WPA2 share the
same security key.
If you are not sure if your security information is correct, then run the wireless setup again.
• The printer and the computer are within the range of the wireless network.
For most networks, the printer and the computer should be within 100 feet (30 meters) of the access point (wireless
router).
•
•
•
•
•
The Wi‑Fi indicator is green and successfully connected.
The printer driver is installed on the computer from which you are performing a task.
The correct printer port is selected.
The computer and printer are both connected to the same wireless network.
The printer is located away from obstacles or electronic devices that could interfere with the wireless signal.
Make sure the printer and access point are not separated by poles, walls, or support columns containing metal or
concrete.
Many devices can interfere with the wireless signal, including baby monitors, motors, cordless phones, security
system cameras, other wireless networks, and some Bluetooth devices.
Cannot print over wireless network
If you encountered problems while installing, or if your printer does not appear in the printers folder or as a printer
option when sending a print job, then try uninstalling and reinstalling the software.
Before you reinstall the software, check the troubleshooting checklist, and then do the following:
TURN THE ACCESS POINT (WIRELESS ROUTER) OFF AND THEN BACK ON
Wait one minute for the printer and computer to reestablish the connection. This can sometimes refresh network
connections and resolve connectivity issues.
DISCONNECT FROM VPN SESSION
When you are connected to another network through a VPN connection, you will not be able to access the printer
over your wireless network. End your VPN session, and then try printing again.
Troubleshooting
154
MAKE SURE DEMO MODE IS TURNED OFF
Select printer features are not available when Demo Mode is turned on.
From the printer control panel, navigate to:
> Setup >
> Demo Mode >
> Off >
CHECK YOUR WEP KEY OR WPA PASSPHRASE
If your access point is using WEP security, then the WEP key should be:
• Exactly 10 or 26 hexadecimal characters. Hexadecimal characters are A–F, a–f, and 0–9.
or
• Exactly 5 or 13 ASCII characters. ASCII characters are letters, numbers, and symbols found on a keyboard. ASCII
characters in a WEP key are case‑sensitive.
If your access point is using WPA or WPA2 security, then the WPA passphrase should be:
• Exactly 64 hexadecimal characters. Hexadecimal characters are A–F, a–f, and 0–9.
or
• From 8 to 63 ASCII characters. ASCII characters are letters, numbers, and symbols found on a keyboard. ASCII
characters in a WPA passphrase are case‑sensitive.
Note: If you do not know this information, then see the documentation that came with the access point, or
contact your system support person.
CHECK IF YOUR ACCESS POINT HAS AN ASSOCIATION/REGISTRATION BUTTON
Wireless broadband boxes in Europe, the Middle East, and Africa such as LiveBox, AliceBox, N9UF Box, FreeBox, or
Club Internet may require you to press an association/registration button when adding the printer to your wireless
network.
If you are using one of these boxes and need more information, then see the documentation that came with your
box, or contact your Internet Service Provider (ISP).
MOVE YOUR ACCESS POINT AWAY FROM OTHER ELECTRONIC DEVICES
There may be temporary interference from electronic devices such as microwave ovens or other appliances, cordless
phones, baby monitors, and security system cameras. Make sure your access point is not positioned too closely to
these devices.
MOVE THE COMPUTER AND/OR PRINTER CLOSER TO THE ACCESS POINT
The range of your wireless network depends on many factors, including the abilities of your access point and network
adapters. If you are having trouble printing, then try placing the computer and printer no more than 100 feet apart.
CHECK THE WIRELESS SIGNAL QUALITY
Print a network setup page and check the signal quality. If the signal quality is listed as good or excellent, then another
factor is causing the problem.
Troubleshooting
155
CHECK YOUR ADVANCED SECURITY SETTINGS
• If you are using MAC (Media Access Control) address filtering to limit access to your wireless network, then you
must add the printer MAC address to the list of addresses allowed to connect to the access point.
• If you set the access point to issue a limited number of IP addresses, then you must change this so that the printer
can be added.
Note: If you do not know how to make these changes, then see the documentation that came with the access
point, or contact the person who set up your wireless network.
MAKE SURE YOUR COMPUTER IS CONNECTED TO YOUR ACCESS POINT
• See if you have access to the Internet by opening your Web browser and accessing any site.
• If there are other computers or resources on your wireless network, then check to see if you can access them
from your computer.
MAKE SURE THAT YOUR COMPUTER AND PRINTER ARE CONNECTED TO THE SAME WIRELESS NETWORK
If the printer is not on the same wireless network as the computer, then you will not be able to print wirelessly. The
SSID of the printer must match the SSID of the computer, if the computer is already connected to the wireless network.
1 Obtain the SSID of the network that the computer is connected to.
a Type the IP address of your access point into the address field of your Web browser.
If you do not know the IP address of the access point:
1 Click , or click Start and then click Run.
2 In the Start Search or Run box, type cmd.
3 Press Enter or click OK.
4 Type ipconfig, and then press Enter. Check the Wireless Network Connection section:
• The “Default Gateway” entry is typically the access point .
• The IP address appears as four sets of numbers separated by periods, such as 192.168.2.134.
b
c
d
e
Type the user name and password of the access point when prompted.
Click OK.
In the Wireless settings section, look for the SSID.
Write down the SSID.
Note: Make sure you copy it exactly, including any capital letters.
2 Obtain the SSID of the network that the printer is connected to:
a From the printer, print a network setup page.
b In the Wireless section, look for SSID.
3 Compare the SSID of the computer and SSID of the printer.
If the SSIDs are the same, then the computer and the printer are connected to the same wireless network.
If the SSIDs are not the same, then run the utility again to set up the printer on the wireless network used by the
computer.
Troubleshooting
156
Wireless print server not installed
You may see a message during installation indicating that the printer does not have a wireless print server installed. If
you are sure the printer is capable of wireless printing, try the following:
CHECK POWER
Make sure the
light is on.
“Communication not available” message appears when printing wirelessly
Try one or more of the following:
MAKE SURE YOUR COMPUTER AND PRINTER HAVE VALID IP ADDRESSES FOR THE NETWORK
If you are using a laptop and have power saving settings enabled, then you may see the ”Communication not available”
message on your computer screen when you attempt to print wirelessly. This can occur if the laptop hard drive has
powered down.
If you see this message, then wait a few seconds and then try to print again. The laptop and printer require a few
seconds to power up again and reattach to the wireless network.
If you see this message again after you have waited long enough for the printer and the laptop to attach to the
network, then there may be a problem with your wireless network.
Make sure that the laptop and printer have both received IP addresses:
1 Click
, or click Start and then click Run.
2 In the Start Search or Run box, type cmd.
3 Press Enter, or click OK.
4 Type ipconfig, and then press Enter.
The IP address appears as four sets of numbers separated by periods, such as 192.168.0.100.
Locating the printer IP address
• From the printer, print a network setup page.
In the TCP/IP section, look for Address.
• View the printer settings.
From the printer control panel, navigate to:
> Setup > > Network Setup >
TCP/IP > > IP Address >
> Wireless 802.11 b/g/n >
> Network Connection Setup >
>
If the printer or the laptop does not have an IP address, or if either has an address of 169.254.x.y (where x and y are
any two numbers between 0 and 255), then do the following:
1 Turn off the device that does not have a valid IP address (the laptop, the printer, or both).
2 Turn on the device, and then check the IP addresses again.
If the printer or the laptop still does not receive a valid IP address, then there is a problem with your wireless network.
Try the following:
• Make sure your access point (wireless router) is turned on and is working.
• Remove any objects that could be blocking the signal.
Troubleshooting
157
• Temporarily turn off any unnecessary wireless devices on your network and pause any network‑intensive
activities, like large file transfers or network games. If the network is too busy, then it is possible that the printer
is not receiving the IP address within the allowed time.
• Make sure your DHCP server, which may also be your wireless router, is working and is configured to assign IP
addresses. If you are not sure how to do this, then refer to the manual that came with your wireless router.
If the printer and computer have valid IP addresses and the network is operating correctly, then continue
troubleshooting.
MAKE SURE THE WIRELESS PORT IS SELECTED

, or click Start and then click Run.
2 In the Start Search or Run box, type control printers.
3 Press Enter, or click OK.
4 Right‑click the printer, and then select Properties or Printer properties from the menu.
5 Click the Ports tab.
6 Click the box next to Enable bidirectional support if it is not already checked.
7 Click Apply > OK, and then try to print again.
Resolving intermittent wireless communications issues
You may notice that your printer works for a short time and then stops working, although apparently nothing has
changed on your wireless network.
Many different issues can interrupt network communications, and sometimes more than one problem exists at the
same time. Try one or more of the following:
DISCONNECT FROM ALL VPNS WHEN ATTEMPTING TO USE THE WIRELESS NETWORK
Most Virtual Private Networks (VPNs) allow computers to communicate with only the VPN and no other network at
the same time. Disconnect from the VPN before installing the driver on the computer or before running the wireless
setup on the computer.
Troubleshooting
158
To check if the computer is currently connected to a VPN, open your VPN Client software and check your VPN
connections. If you do not have a VPN Client software installed, then check the connections manually using the
Windows VPN Client.
If you would like to have the ability to connect to your local network and to a VPN at the same time, then request
the system support person for the VPN to allow split tunneling. Be aware that some organizations will not allow split
tunneling due to security or technical concerns.
TURN OFF THE ACCESS POINT (WIRELESS ROUTER) AND TURN IT BACK ON
Wait one minute for the printer and computer to reestablish the connection. This can sometimes refresh network
connections and resolve connectivity issues.
ELIMINATE NETWORK CONGESTION
If a wireless network is too busy, then the computer and printer may have difficulty communicating with each other.
Some causes of wireless network congestion can include:
•
•
•
•
•
Transferring large files across the network
Networked games
Peer‑to‑peer file swapping applications
Streaming video
Too many computers on the wireless network at once
ELIMINATE SOURCES OF INTERFERENCE
Common household items can potentially disrupt wireless network communications. Cordless phones (but not
cellular phones), microwave ovens, baby monitors, almost any kitchen appliance, wireless surveillance equipment,
nearby wireless networks, and any appliance containing a motor can disrupt wireless network communications.
Try turning on any potential sources of interference and see if it causes the problem. If it does, then separate your
wireless network from the device.
CHANGE THE CHANNEL THE ACCESS POINT USES
You can sometimes eliminate interference from unknown sources by changing the channel your access point uses
to broadcast. There are three distinct channels on a router. See the documentation that came with your router to
determine which three apply. Other channels are offered as options, but these overlap. If the router is configured
to use the default settings, then change the channel setting to use a different distinct channel. If you are not sure
how to change the channel, then see the documentation that came with your access point.
CONFIGURE THE ACCESS POINT WITH A UNIQUE SSID
Many wireless networks use the SSID that the router was originally configured by the manufacturer to use. Using
the default SSID can cause problems when more than one network is operating in the same area with the same SSID.
The printer or computer may attempt to attach to the wrong network, although it will appear to be trying to connect
to the correct network.
To avoid this type of interference, change the SSID on your access point from the default. If you are not sure how to
change the SSID, then see the documentation that came with your access point.
Note: You must change the SSID on all of the other devices that access your wireless network if you change the
SSID on the access point.
Troubleshooting
159
ASSIGN STATIC IP ADDRESSES TO ALL DEVICES IN THE NETWORK
Most wireless networks use a DHCP server (Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol) built in to the wireless router to
assign IP addresses to clients on the wireless network. DHCP addresses are assigned when they are needed, as when
a new device is added to the wireless network or when it is powered on. Wireless devices must send a request to
the router, and receive an IP address in response so they can function on the network. Because the wireless router
performs many other tasks besides assigning addresses, it sometimes does not respond quickly enough with an
address. The requesting device sometimes gives up before it receives an address.
Try assigning static IP addresses to the devices in your network to resolve this issue.
To assign a static IP address to the printer:
1 Complete the wireless setup, allowing the printer to receive a DHCP address from a DHCP server on the network.
2 Print a network setup page to see what IP address is currently assigned to the printer.
3 Open a Web browser and then type the printer IP address in the address field. Press Enter.
4 Click Configuration > TCP/IP > Set static IP address.
5 In the Address field, type the IP address you want to assign to the printer, and then click Submit.
Confirm that the IP address is updated by typing the static IP address in the browser address field and checking to
see if the printer Web page reloads. For more information on assigning static IP addresses, see the documentation
that came with your router and operating system.
CHECK FOR KNOWN ISSUES WITH THE ACCESS POINT
Some wireless routers have documented defects that were identified and resolved by the manufacturers. Visit the
company Web site of the router manufacturer. Check for firmware updates and other advice from the manufacturer.
See the documentation that came with your wireless router if you are not sure how to reach the manufacturer Web
site.
CHECK FOR WIRELESS NETWORK ADAPTER UPDATES
If you are having trouble printing from one particular computer, then check the Web site of the manufacturer of the
wireless network adapter card in that computer. It is possible that there is an updated driver available that could
resolve the issue.
CHANGE ALL NETWORK DEVICES TO THE SAME TYPE
While it is possible to successfully mix 802.11b, 802.11g, and 802.11n devices on the same wireless network, the
faster devices will sometimes prevent the slower devices from communicating.
Try turning on only the network devices of the same type and see if network communications improve. If this solves
the problem, then you may want to upgrade your older devices with newer wireless network adapters.
PURCHASE A NEW ROUTER
If your router is several years old, then it may not be fully compatible with the newer wireless devices on your network.
Consider purchasing a newer router that is fully compliant with the 802.11 IEEE specifications.
