Re: b209a wireless setup

Here are a few things to try:

 

1. If your Linksys uses WEP, change it.  WEP is no longer secure (can be broken into in 10 minutes with freeware).  Change it to WPA or WPA2.  Need help?  Do this before anything else.

 

2. If your Linksys router is new-ish, it may have WPS.  This is a very easy way to add the printer.  See instructions on page 5 of the manual.

 

3. Disable your Windows firewall and the firewall in your security system.
