How to install the Windows driver via Wi-Fi®/ wired network

For Wi-Fi connection, make sure both your wireless access point/router and your printer's network settings are correctly set up. For more information, see the documentation provided with your wireless access point/router, or contact the router manufacturer, your system administrator, or Internet service provider.
