  • Step 1:
    Launch the Linksys Connect. To do this, go to Start > All Programs > Linksys Connect. For Mac® computers, access Go > Applications and then start Linksys Connect.

    Step 2:
    On the main Linksys Connect window, select Computers and devices.

    Step 3:
    In the Computers and other devices screen, select Printer.

    Step 4:
    Select Wireless Printer.

    Step 5:
    On the Connecting a wireless printer screen, you will find the wireless settings of your router. Take note of these settings and do not close this window yet.

    The wireless settings include:
    Network name (SSID) – the name of your wireless network
    Security Key – the wireless password or passphrase
    Security Type – the type of encryption your network uses
    Step 6:
    Go to your printer and enter the wireless settings that Linksys Connect displayed on your computer. After entering the wireless details on your printer, click Next on the Linksys Connect window.

    QUICK TIP: Refer to your wireless printer’s documentation or manufacturer’s online support for instructions on how to enter the wireless settings on your printer.

    Step 7:
    To confirm that your wireless printer has been detected, you should be directed to the Name your printer screen. Enter your preferred name in the field provided then click Finish.

    You should have successfully connected your printer now. To know if your wireless printer is properly connected and installed to the computer, try printing a document. If it doesn’t print the document properly, try following the troubleshooting tips below.
    If you get the Wireless printer not found screen, follow the on-screen instructions to resolve the issue. To learn more on how to resolve this error message, click here.

    Remove old networks stored on your printer. Check your printer’s manual to learn how to do this.
    Power cycle the computer, router, and printer before going through the setup again.

    If you are still unable to connect your printer to the network, isolate the problem by connecting other devices or computers. If they connect successfully, there might be other settings that you need to configure on the printer. You may contact your printer’s manufacturer or refer to the documentation for assistance.
