Compatible printers and w-fi connectivity.

Hi

I have been a Virgin customer for 2 weeks and have an issue that is bugging me.  I just can't get the Samsung M2070 laser multifunction printer to connect wirelessly.  The (5 year old) printer is fine, it worked with BT, but I am struggling.

I have got to the point where I have plugged the printer lead into my computer and will forget the wireless connection.  Once I have run out the current toner I could probably upgrade the printer as they are pretty cheap anyway.

My problem is - have I missed something with the set-up of the Virgin wifi and the printer connection that could be easily solved meaning that I don't have to replace the printer?

Or, if I buy a new printer, is there one that is more likely to be compatible so that I don't just buy a new one and end up with the same problem?

Jeff

A lot of old WiFi printers do not like the 2.4 & 5 GHz bands being on the same SSID name. You need to logon to the hubs settings and give them different names like xxx-2 and xxx-5. Then connect the printer to the xxx-2 SSID.

Hello Jeff

Should not be an issue with using this printer with the Hub, first of all you will need to split the 2.4Ghz and 5Ghz bands on the hub then follow :-

http://www.samsungsetup.com/ts/manual/Samsung%20M2070%20Series/English/manual/BABBHHBB.htm

You may need the software to configure it from http://www.samsungdrivers.net/samsung-m2070-driver/

and if needed manuals from https://support.hp.com/gb-en/product/samsung-xpress-sl-m2070-laser-multifunction-printer-series/1645...
