I've just bought a printer and set it up to the wireless network, same as my computer. I've tried printing and I keep getting an error message saying that my computer can't communicate with the printer and the printer validation failed. It also says to set up the printer with the computer again, but I never did that. How is the computer picking it up if it hasn't been set up together (it's not plugged into the comp), and how do I make it work?
