Connecting the printer to the Wifi network.. impossible?

Hello fellow Dell users,

I have before you what may seem like a task easier than making a sand which but in reality has created such turmoil and waste of my time.

So now I ask the rest of the world for help, 

I have: Dell V313W All-In-One Wireless Printer

My router: Netgear N300 Wireless Router (WNR2000)

My problem: The Dell wireless set up wont connect to the router!

I have a WPA2-PSK [AES] secure network, and I know the password for it. I entered the SSID in correctly, in fact I entered ALL of it in correctly.. but it wont connect? 

Sorry if this seems bland, it is such an easy problem but I can't find the answer to it!

Jgillila,

 

Try WPA-PSK(TKIP) Security(Personal) I don't think the adapter supports WPA2-AES

Also try channels 1, 6 or 11. I use channel 11.  I would make a new SSIUD to make connecting easier. The printer would need setup again.

... When I selected this option, it warned me that my max mbps would only be 50.. Is this a sacrifice I can make? I have a wifi network that 3 of my roommates use as well.

Jgillila,

 

If you cannot make that sacrifice, then attach the printer to one computer and do the file and printer sharing.
