Thank you. Is it currently printing via wired connection?

As a last resort yes, I'm not saying it doesn't work, have never tried , just don't know how to set it up,
Expert:  Viet - Technician replied 1 year ago.
I can provide you written instructions you can try first. If needed, then I can connect remotely to your computer and fix okay? Remote support is quicker and easier for you as I would do all the troubleshooting steps for you. Otherwise, it will take longer as I need some time to write all the instructions for you; it requires a lot of steps for setting up wi-fi/wireless, so please wait for me to write the steps. Thank you.
