printer won't connect to computer

Hi there. I am having a problem connectingmy printer to my devices through wifi. The printer connects with the network no problem but won't connect to my computer or laptop or any other device. I bought a new printer thinking it would solve the problem but the same thing happened again. What do you think the cause could be.

Any help greatly appeciated.

Need to know the make and model of the printer and your OS. Did you follow through the installation instructions in the right order and install drivers, etc?

it is an epson WF 3520 and I am running Windows 7. I had a Kodak printer before that but same problem.

Suggest that you install by connecting by USB at first then change it to a wifi connection see Changing the printer connection. You will, of course, make sure that the printer is connected to the router by wifi and the green light is on.
