Try printing a network configuration page and check for connectivity in the network to see if the printer is connected to the network. Make sure your router is closer to the printer. Check and confirm that the IP address of the printer matches the IP address of the router.
How can I see if the printer is connected to the web?
- Switch on your router and allow Wi-Fi access.
- Connect to the wireless network of your printer.
- If you use a wired network connection check the Ethernet cable connection.
- Check and match the router and configuration area network name.
- Match the IP address of the router with the IP address of the printer.
- Print a connectivity status wireless network report or network configuration page.
- Make sure the network connection is not blocked by security software.
- Confirm in the filter list that you have added the MAC address of the printer.
Steps To Check The Network Connection On Your Printer
- Take the first step to plug in your printer with a power source connected to the power cable to check and see if the printer is connected. Turn on the printer and press the power button. Turn on your router and connect to the broadband or other services that provide quick and safe internet access.
- Make sure you do not use telephone cables instead of ethernet cables when connected via a wired Ethernet connection. Remove the Ethernet port protective covers and connect the cable. Do not connect to an Ethernet cable via any USB hub or docking station because it may not work well.
- Ensure that every switch, access point, joystick and other connecting device is active. Connect your printer to the Wi-Fi connection when the router is enabled and the network connection is enabled. Make sure the indicator shows that the active internet connection is brilliant.
- If the Wi-Fi light is not illuminated, check the router name and the configuration SSID for the network name and confirm that both are the same. Similarly, update the network password in the setting area if the router password has been changed to see if the printer is connected.
- Place the router with the Wi-Fi range and make sure your printer and computer have access to the entire network. When using a Network MAC Address Filter, make sure to add a MAC address of your printer to the MAC Address Filter List to allow the network connection of your printer.
- Check your network connection by printing a network settings page or a wireless network test report after setting up the whole connection. Place blank sheets on the input tray to print the report. If you connect to the network, the report says it passes through the connectivity area. If you are not connected, the connectivity status is shown as a failure.
- If the connection fails, try disabling the security software to connect the network. Because security software can sometimes block the connection to the network. If the connection problem continues, try reconfiguring the network connection or reset it. If you use a wired connection, use another Ethernet cable to configure the network connection and only connect when you have to connect the USB network connection if the USB cable is required to see if the printer is connected.
