NOTE: It may be necessary to ensure that the correct primary network type has been selected. If the printer is connected using the optional wireless network adapter and is connected to a wireless network, then confirm that the primary network type is set to Wi-Fi. If the printer is connected with an Ethernet connection, then set the primary network type to Ethernet. If both are connected properly, then either selection can be used. See the Related Content for additional information.
