Trouble connecting to Wifi from Xerox Phaser 6022

Wifi Status: No Reception

In the following PDF...

I am told:
To check the status of your wireless connection, print the
Configuration Page and check the status for Link Quality.

• If Link Quality lists as No Reception, check your router and
modem to ensure that they are transmitting a signal.
I have the backing plugged in and working. But need help getting it to search for Wireless networks.

I use that network all day every day. Does this relate to WPS?



I am stuck.

I did install the necessary drive from Xerox and restarted my machine. But (on a Mac) when I try and Add a printer, I do not see the Xerox as an option. In fact, I see nothing in that list.

I do see a button WPS, but no buttons evoke a change to the display. I am not sure if my router has WPS. Could that be the problem?

I have only used Xerox printers via Ethernet, so I have not tried this.

The WPS button is used with a corresponding button on your wireless router. You press the WPS button and then the button on your wireless router to make the connection. If the wireless router does not have this button, then you cannot use this method.

So then (according to the directions) go to the Admin menu, Network and set up wireless manually.

IP address
Subnet mask (likely 255.255.255.0)
Router gateway
DNS setting:  IP address for your network.

I learned my modem does not have WPS but I am switching to COMCAST on Thursday.

I am trying to find out the modem version I will be getting, but I hope al modems today have WPS.

This should solve my problem.

I can wait until Thursday.
