Hello and welcome to Just Answer. My name is XXXXX XXXXX I will be assisting you today. Do you have the optional BU-30 bluetooth adapter for the printer? It is not included.
Also can you double check the model number? MP-101 is usually a paper type, not a printer model.
How do I know and it says wifi is on?
On the bottom or back of the printer the model number should be listed, if you can get that for me it will be much easier to assist you.
The BU-30 is a small USB key... it would be sticking out of the printer if you had it connected.
However, depending on the printer, it may be installed under a panel. that's why I need the model number
I think the model number is XXXXX and it was sold as a wireless printer. WIFI is lit up in blue.
okay, wireless (wifi) is a little different setup than Bluetooth. What color is your printer?
Does it look like this?
Wes sorry It might be model number MG5250. Colour is black and says PIXMA on top.
okay, that helps a lot
hold on while I look up some info
Look like that?
Yes it does
