Thanks

remove power to the wifi router, and to the printer (so unplug it from the power socket).

Then wait 10 minutes, connect the power again to the wifi router, wait 5 minutes, then connect power to the printer, turn it on and tell me please if it is now operating correctly.

Let me know the results please
