    Default Trouble connecting laptop/printer via wi-fi

    I am having trouble getting my printer to work over wi-fi.
    I used to use this same laptop/printer combo via a wired connection in my old office. I've just pulled the printer out of its box after 3.5 years and am trying to set it up via wi-fi.
    I seem to have connected it to the wi-fi network and it is set as my default printer, but when I try to print nothing happens.
    I feel really inadequate when it comes to all this tech stuff and could do with some help.

    Is there any further info I need to give?

    What operating system are you using?

    Have you installed the printer as a wi-fi or network printer or is your computer still think it is communicating with the printer via a USB cable?

    Thanks for the reply Ian. Your question regarding the printer installation got me thinking. I had re-installed it as a wi-fi connection, but hadn't removed the initial usb installation. I removed the initial installation, and hey presto, problem solved. Thanks for making me use my grey matter for some problem solving.
