Learn why Printer Cannot Print Wirelessly
Wireless printer may be not compatible with the computer with which you are working and the printer drivers may not be properly installed because of which you cannot print. Even if in wireless connection you don’t need direct connection, but you need some other plugs to be connected. The printer connection can be easily disabled and that would cause the printer not to perform the work that is given. The ink cartridges if not plugged properly may also affect the printing process. A mechanical problem in wireless printer also results in improper function of the printer which causes paper to jam. The connection problem i.e. the router connection and the security settings is the main cause in the wireless network that creates the problem of printing. If you have a firewall installed in your computer, there are chances that this firewall may prevent the access to the network. Issue of the IP address may also cause problem to the printer in the wireless network.
