Windows Vista Home Premium.
My printer (above) is saying that it is offline when it's online, and keeps queuing jobs, I decided to take the printer off the computer (get rid of it) and re install it, now when I try to install the printer the computer cannot find it even though it is wireless and the printer is turned on ? this is with my laptop and nothing I do seems to make any difference so I decided to use my son's computer because mine has a faulty dvd drive and will not play DVD'd CD's so could not re-install the set-up cd rom to put the software on the computer.
After a long time trying to get it working wirelessly without success I decided to usb to usb and install the software like a factory re-set to start afresh, this went well and after everything seemed to be ok tried to print off a page or two but got the message 'printer is offline' again, anyone have any idea what is going wrong here as it's doing my head in, why does my computer not seem to see the printer ??
The wep key is is ok and has been put into the printer again but still no luck ??
Thanks for any help,
