Full Answer

To reinstall a wireless printer to your network, you must have the SSID or network name and the network password.

Depending on the type of wireless printer, you must set up network permission via a USB cable, Ethernet cable that allows access to the printer from an Internet browser, or via the panel directly on the printer.

Installation is completed by turning on the printer and inputting the network name and password. To gain access to it from the computer, each computer in the network must add the printer to its system. Click on the Start button and then the start menu, select the option for devices and printers, and choose the option to add a printer. For Windows systems prior to Windows 8, open the control panel, and select the hardware and sound and then printers.
