Ask a Networking Question, Get an Answer ASAP!
I reached a stage where i was asked to place a single sheet of paper in the printer and got a print of Network Configuration PageThis lists wireless LAN with 20 headings these are mostly left blank others have comments inactive ,none, 0%, 8 are blank .Also under other settings there is a 13 item list of which 4 are blankand 2 are disable All the foregoing means nothing to me and nothing allows me to proceed further .
I was assured by PC WORLD my computer was cloud ready but they have been unhelpful I have tried several times a day to get this set up .EG If you click on to set up for printers without LCD you get a picture of a Primax printer and lists all its properties but you do not seem to be able to progress from there. I,ve been into several so called helpers who seem to delight in telling me you have logged into us umpteen times but I never get anywhere .
What you have told me is no different to others and it does not work . I have CHROME computer there are no discs nor any slot for one.
It ready for use with a wireless function on numerous printers including the one I have Primax MG 3550 (Canon) The only wire supplied with the printer is for the power It photocopies .In following other instructions from the internet Remote UI I placed 1 sheet of paper in the printer and entirely on its own it printed the list previously described .No connection for further printing . One is supposed to go into CHROME CLOUD PRINT to set up but that I have tried without success I am in mid 80s but I am not stupid but I am rapidly reaching the hair (i have plenty ) pulling stage .
I believe that if I were connected to my WiFi internet I would be fine . The connection should be wireless and the computer Google Chrome Cloud which the printer is Cloud Ready . That is what is required and what I have and it should work but it does not ,You say connect to your WiFi router so do all the others But no one says how ,My router works flashes away all the time it is about 4 feet from thr printer and a bit less from the computer and it used to be at least 20ft .
I am sorry to say that so far you have not helped me one iota .
According to Samsung ,PC world and Canon my two machines are wireless compatible and should print anything I wish from my computer . Instructions are inadequate . Which is why I have tried you .Maybe I was wrong .
Yes I have WPS on my router but it is only a light which is not connected and is not any sort of button nowhere to press or switch .
I was unable to get any where with my printer .To day however as it has been raining a friend of my sons called to see me with his girl friend and after a chat I told the of my problem .They volunteered to have a go and between them they got it fixed up in some two hours.
Thanks for your effort
