When I connect to my printer my wifi connection is broken and vica-versa.  Can I not stay connect to both at the same time?  Thank you in advance for your comments!!

Hi,

Do not connect to the pritner's WiFi network, this is intended for a case when you don't have a router...

 

From the printer tap the WiFi icon and select Settings, then follow the Wireless Setup Wizard to connect the printer to your home router.

Hi Shlomi,  

     Thank you for responding.  I don't have a router presently.  I originally went through the setup so that my computer and printer would communicate wirelessly but it worked only intermittently so I changed it to the wifi setup.  I'd likd to be able to print from my iPad and work computer as well; does that mean I need a router?
