  7. A list of wireless networks that the printer can see appears. Select your network, and then click Next(Wireless Network Security Dialog appears). If your network does not appear, try the following:
    • Make sure your wireless router or access point is broadcasting on the 2.4Ghz band, not 5Ghz. Samsung printers do not currently have 5Ghz capability.
    • See if another wireless device can get a good signal (at least 2 bars consistently) in the same spot. Bear in mind that antenna strength varies between devices; if your laptop or phone is only able to get one bar of signal it is likely the printer will not be able to get a consistent signal at all.
    • If you have verified there is a consistent good signal but the printer does not see the network, click Advanced Settings, and then enter your network information manually.
