Won't stay connected to the network!

Michael W. Pearson "Mike P.", Amazon
30 May 2015
  • Summary: You get what you pay for. This printer won't stay on my wireless network! The only viable solution is to send it back to Dell to get a "refurbished" replacement or downgrade the network to 802.11g from 802.11n or 802.11ac and WPS not WPA/WPA2. How stupid is that?

CuriousMom, Amazon

  • Summary: Wireless only prints the first time, useless any time after that. I looked for solutions hours and still no solution, rebooted router, rebooted printer, still no connection. I bought this printer because it is wireless, but turned out wireless printing is a pain in the a..

Will not work with new iDevices

wannabe pugilist, Amazon
4 January 2015
  • Summary: This use to be a great printer but BUYER BEWARE. This will not work with any iOS8 devices. Spent an hour on the phone with Apple. Finally called Dell. I was told it is not compatable. Downloaded 8.1 and 8.2 still does not work. Apple told me Dell needs to come up with a firmware update.

Drops network connection every day

Clank, Staples
25 July 2014
  • Excerpt: Definitely would not recommend this printer. The daily ritual is to unplug power and plug in back it to get network connection back. I spoke with Dell support many times and could never resolve for any length of time.

Sorry I bought

Clank, Staples
14 July 2014
  • Excerpt: I purchased this printer several months ago and cannot keep the printer on the network. Almost every time I try to use it, I have to unplug the power and power up again. I have worked with Dell support several times and even thought it was fixed at one time, but a week later after support closed the...

Can't maintain a network connection!

Adam, Staples
8 April 2014
  • Excerpt: The printer has great features for the price, but the stupid printer will not maintain a network connection for more than a day. What's the point of a wireless printer if I have to get up and unplug it from the wall to get it to reboot before I can print anything? Never buying a Dell printer again.

Would be great if if could maintain a wifi connection...but it won't

Adam Long, Amazon
8 April 2014
  • Summary: The printer has great specs and features for the price--particularly wifi connectivity and airprint. That said, those are both absolutely worthless due to the fact that the printer won't stay connected to the network.

too expensive to run

homeschool mom, Staples
30 March 2014
  • Excerpt: While this prints well, and we enjoy the wireless printing option, the toner cartridge has less than half the stated lifetime. My previous copier/printer/scanner would get at least 2500 copies for the same priced toner. This unit gets 700!
