Any of the following can cause this anomaly:
- The Broadcast SSID setting is disabled on the wireless router/AP.
- The wireless router/AP resides on a different segment (subnet) of the network
- The MarkNet 802.11b/g print server is closer to a neighboring wireless router/AP than to your own.
- You are trying to set up the printer while connected to your workplace VPN (virtual private network). This is not possible.
- You are connecting to a 802.11N router and the router is set to N only mode. You will have change the setting to mixed or b/g compatible mode.
