I'm guessing you're talking about wifi. If the printer has a screen, manually put in the router's password into it. You may have to uninstall and re-install the printers software again and you may need a USB cable temporarily.

If you've got a dual band router, the printer needs to be set to 2.4G not 5G, either manually or using the WPS button.

Make sure you have the latest software/drivers for your printer, and that the printer is selected as default.

If your printer has a fixed IP address, make sure it’s on the same subnet as the router.
