    USB cable: The installer might prompt you to connect a USB cable.
  2. Make sure the printer, router, and computer are all turned on, and that the computer is connected to the same wireless network to which you are connecting the printer.
  3. Set up the printer, load paper into the input tray, and install the ink cartridges.
  4. Disconnect any USB or Ethernet cables from the printer.
