DNS/Gateway problem

@ranter, Welcome to the HP Support Community!


Let us try these steps to resolve this issue:


On the printer screen, go to Setup > Network > Restore network settings


Restart the network devices

  1. Turn off the Router, Printer, and the computer/ mobile devices.
  2. Wait for 60 seconds.
  3. Turn on the Router first and wait for all the lights to stabilize.
  4. Turn on the printer and allow it to configure itself.
  5. Turn on the computer/ mobile devices.

Connect the printer to the wireless network by going to Setup > Network setup > Wireless > Wireless setup wizard.


Let me know how this goes.
