I use a wifi passphrase with special characters, including $ or ! or + or ?
When trying to connect the printer to wifi the passphrase is not working (internally midinterpreted/misspelled, confused by any of the special characters) - the printer doesn't connect.
I tried all options, WPS push button, WPS password, manual entry in ASCII and even in HEX, changing through the browser GUI - no success.
Only when I remove all the specials and have the passphrase consist of just letters and numbers, it works and connects.
All other hardware in house works just fine with a special characters password, even 10 year old TVs and other things - only this printer is unable...
Pretty sure this can be easily fixed with a firmware update, right?
I like the printer other than that, would be a shame returning it only for this stupid reason.
Solved! Go to Solution.
Thanks...this did the trick!
Fooled by the green tick on the Software Update page on the printer web interface I assumed the latest firmware was already installed and didn't check the website for updates...
