it's always the wifi connectivity that causes grief on setting up printers, especially on the low end printers
Upvote for that. Due to circumstances I'm of a sufficient distance away from the access point that my (rather new) printer really struggles to keep a link up. The result: *very* slow printing.
I tried WiFi extenders but these things have other side effects, so in the end I just jacked the printer in via an old 20m ethernet cable I still had around from when I was messing with VoIP. Problem solved.
