    My laptop can't print to my printer


    My printer is a Brother 5250-DN. It is conected to my Desktop that is on a network. My laptop needs to connect to the network wirelessly. When I go into the network and try to connect, it says my credentials don't work. I am typing in the right username and password. Other laptops (a Mac) in the office can connect to the printer but I can't. Hoping this is an easy fix. Other info, I can connect to the network and access an F drive that has everything on it, files etc. but not the printer. Please help.

    Is the printer a network printer, or is it connected by USB to your desktop?

    Network printer, my laptop is logged into the network. Everything else on the network I can access, just not the printer. It's just weird.

    If it is a network printer, it should have a static IP address. Ping that to make sure the printer is at least "visible".
