I recently moved and now have a new Wifi connection. I was able to connect the printer fine to the wifi. However, it does not connect wirelessly to my laptop anymore and will not print wirelessly. I think it may be related to the IP address, however I do not know how to fix this. Appreciate any help.
Make sure the printer is connected to the new wifi network. Recheck the network name on the printer screen by tapping the wireless icon.
Make sure the printer and the MAC are connected to the same wireless network.
This printer supports only 2.4GHz network. So, the MAC should be on the 2.4GHz network.
If you have a Dual-band router and both 2.4GHz and 5GHz networks share the same name/SSID, the printer will not be able to connect to the network. In this case, contact your Internet service provider to assign different names to both the networks.
Also, check with your Internet service provider if your router is able to forward 'Bonjour packets'.
The wireless status menu on your Mac should also give us quite a lot of information that would help us identify the issue. You can press and hold the option key on your keyboard and click the WiFi icon to get detailed information.
Restart the wireless router, the printer, and the MAC
Perform a PING test to check the connectivity
Obtain the IP address of the printer by clicking on the Wireless icon on the printer
On the MAC Go to Spotlight > search for Network utility > select Ping tab > enter the IP address of the printer in the box
Check the second box that says Send only > 10 pings
Click on ping > Check the results at the end if any packets are lost
Note: There should be 0% packet loss, share the results in your next post.
Hope this helps! Keep me posted.
