b1160w wifi printing

I am trying to configure the dell b1160 so I'll be able to print wirelessly. I'm able to print through the USB cable but not the but not wirelessly. I did the WPS and it seems to have connected to the router because it is showing up but after a few seconds, it changed to inactive. I have tried it both with macOS HighSierra and Win10 (under VMware fusion) and win8.1. None of them seem to be able to print.

The LED on the printer is green. If I reboot the printer by removing power and turning it back on makes no difference.
