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...
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.
