Struggling with a printer that refuses to connect wirelessly? Between finicky routers, outdated drivers, and a web of settings, getting your documents to print is not always as straightforward as we’d like. Let’s take a look at troubleshooting the most common issues and simplifying your printing experience.

Common culprits of wireless printing woes:

  • Network issues: Weak signal, router conflicts, or incorrect network passwords can cause connectivity issues.
  • Driver dilemmas: Outdated or incompatible drivers can lead to communication breakdowns between your device and the printer. Fortunately, this is quickly becoming less of an issue thanks to advancements like the Mopria standards and Microsoft’s commitment to phase out third-party printer drivers on Windows.
  • Setting status: Firewall restrictions, security protocols, and hidden network settings can throw a wrench in the printing process. Check your settings to see if these might be a roadblock.

Mopria to the rescue:
