First, let's connect the printer to your wireless router. There are two ways to choose from:
1. Ethernet cable - this is preferred if you have the cable and the printer is close to the router. Just plug them in!
2. Wireless - on the front of the printer: Setup > Network > Wireless Setup Wizard. Run the wizard to connect your printer to you router.
Now, once the printer is connected to the router, let's show the Mac where it is:
- Go to System Preferences > Print & Scan
- Select the plus sign below the list of printers to add a printer. Select the Defualt tab on the top of the window. Look for the printer, select it and wait until the "Add" button becomes available. Click it.
