If your router has a USB port, you can easily connect your printer to the router using the USB port. Power on the printer and wait 60 seconds. If you haven`t already done so, plug the printer into an electrical outlet or power strip. Turn on the printer and wait 60 seconds for your router to recognize the printer.
