Wireless devices have made major inroads into our homes in recent years. The printer that has long exploited the vein of USB now uses Wi-Fi. Much more practical when you have several PCs at home and more aesthetic since there is only one cable needed the one that brings the current. Yes, but with the loss of the USB cable, new problems appear.

Because sometimes, it happens, especially after restarting the router or its box, that the printer is no longer reachable when it comes to printing any document.

Your printer’s IP address changes

If you regularly lose the ability to print a document wirelessly, it’s probably because your wifi printer is offline. After checking that the device is powered on and make sure it is not on standby, it is usually enough to look in the Windows drivers for its status. If it says “offline,” it could just be a network issue.


Then check that the Internet connection is available on your PC. If so, then the printer’s IP address may have changed. This happens when setting the default printer and using the DHCP server. The purpose of the latter is to allocate addresses to each device dynamically. But now, the printer drivers themselves do not necessarily know how to take this change into account on the fly.


In addition to the basic hassle of losing light for a while, power outages can have other devastating effects on various electronic products. Restart the computer and reset the electronic clock. Another problem after a power outage is that the wireless printer cannot connect to your laptop.


Depending on the duration of the power failure, the wireless printer may reset the settings. The router that sends the wireless Internet signal restarts the modem. Laptops usually retain their current settings while shutting down, as if they were turned off after use. When restoring power, first make sure that these four devices are fully on.


Check your router and modem.

First, check your modem and wireless router. Follow your modem and router instructions to see if all the lights are green. If you have trouble connecting, connect your laptop to your router using an Ethernet cable, login, and configure the router’s settings (see your router’s documentation for detailed instructions). You may need to reset your router’s password or re-enable wireless activity.


Check printer settings

If your router is working properly and your computer is connected to the Internet, but your wireless printer is not connecting, there may be a problem with your wireless printer. Change the wireless settings by pressing the Settings button on the wireless printer keyboard or the same name setting. If necessary, re-enter the router’s SSID (wireless connection name) and password and click OK to restore the wireless connection.


Cell phone

The software for your laptop may not be working properly. If this is a problem, uninstall and reinstall the software with your wireless printer. There are some steps to connect wireless printers.


How to use a wireless printer?

Whether you are writing a document, letter, invoice, or manual, the printer is one of the most used equipment in the office. Therefore, effective and reliable tools are essential. Except for The Matrix, you should know that all modern-generation printers have wireless connectivity.


Generally, a printer needs to be connected using a cable to a computer or a network, and there is a tangle of cables for sure. But this time is well and truly over. With the emergence of wireless printers, it has become quick and easy to print documents from any device without a single cable.
