From question what i understand is, you are not able to print from computer...
Does this means you are able to take direct print from printer, i mean print from printer itself
Also let me know hows printer connected to computer? (USB / Wireless)
printer connected to wireless
printer connected to computer by wireless
printer connected to computer by wireless . Also I can print from printer
printer connected to computer by wireless. also, can print from printer itself
I am back..
Thanks for your reply.
Since connected via wireless, it should have an IP Address, do you know what it is?
I assume this would be some configuration issue since printer prints directly..
If you don't know to find printer ip address, please see below procedure
Do this on printer control panel
1: Click Menu button
2: Select Network Settings > Print Status Sheet
This prints the network info
Form printed page find IP Address of your printer. The ip address should be something like 192.168.1.33
Note: Make sure printer connects to wireless before printing status page
Please update status
Please let me know when you are available

Just make sure printer is on and wireless symbol shows on printerelse add printer once again to network like you done previous and check for new ip addressThanks
Hi- I managed to follow all your instructions as far as Perform test print. At this point I was quite excited!!! Unfortunately it said "unable to perform test print because the computer isn't connected to the internet"!!! I'm gutted- soo it must be the provider I now need to talk too!!! Then hopefully the service will be improved instead of temperamental!!!
Big thank you for all your help!!
