The Network Configuration Web Page

Many modern WiFi-enabled printers can be configured using a network configuration web page, similar to how you would configure your home router. Mine looks like Figure 3 below.

I want to get to the printer’s advanced settings by clicking on “Advanced” in Figure 3.  The next step to get the printer printing is to enable the LPR protocol. On my printer, you do this by clicking on “Other Setting” on Figure 4 below, and selecting “Enable” in the LPR protocol settings drop-down menu. Save the new setting, and your WiFi printer is now ready to print! What you may have to do with your specific model of WiFi printer may be somewhat different, but the concepts should be the same.
