Dell 966 All in one Printer

We have the above wireless printer but are after getting a new modem.  This ssid number is different but I don't know how to change it on the printer.  Can anyone help me?  Thanks

Re: Dell 966 All in one Printer

Dinkydots,

 

You'll need to setup the printer like you did whwn it was new. I would recomend using these Recommended Wireless Router Settings, I use channel 11. I would make a new SSID to make connecting easier.

 

First try going to start, control panel, programs and features(add/remove programs) and uninstall the printer.

 

Restart your computer.

 

Now install the printer and follow the instructions like you did when you first got it.

 

Remember virus programs and firewallls will block communications.
