I get a message "UNABLE TO CONNECT TO PREFERRED WIRELESS NETWORK", and advisory to click to see network connections in the area ... which I did.
A list of local networks come up with my network being first and marked 'AUTOMATIC' ... another one (HOME) reflected as 'AUTOMATIC' also. Both are recognized ... with HOME (as I recall) being one I created during the process of the printer set-up. [NOTE: I am not that sharp with this process ... will admit that.]
So with the message of not being able to connect, I presumed I need to set up the router to accept the laptop ip address. I put in CMD and then IPCONFIG ... and get the message for both Ethernet adapter lines (Local area connection and Wireless network connection) of "MEDIA DISCONNECTED".
But no ip address.
As indicated above have used this setup now for the last couple of years with no problem.
Need help PLEASE. Want to be able to transfer files, etc. back and forth.
