Dell V313w won't connect

My Dell V313w printer won't connect. I downloaded the driver software and am on the "locate printer" page, and it's not showing up so I type in the IP address for the printer and it still won't show up. Both the laptop and printer are connected to my wifi network, light is green.

First run Delete Print Jobs to remove any stuck print job in the queue.

Disconnect the printer.

Hit the Windows key and the x keys at the same time, programs and features, your printer, uninstall.

Restart your computer. Make sure the printer is removed.
