    When I try to setup the WLAN to my access gateway, the printer's LCD says: "Connection Error" I've got the WEP key typed in correctly, but the printer doesn't seem to like the wireless gateway. The printer worked before for about 3 months, but lately it's just not been working. It says that the WLAN is not active when I try to check the WLAN signal, unfortunately, as I said before, I cannot set up the WLAN.

    It worked fine when I first got it a month ago! It won't get online...I had it set up wireless. Now, I connected the usb to the computer and still won't get online. Drivers are installed and everything!

Do you mean get the printer powered ON? Simply press stand-by-fax to get it back ON.

Or do you mean the wireless connection?
plz take a look around here:

Printer offline wont print cant get back online


Check the status of the printer at Control Panel. Set it to online if it's shown as offline. If this doesn't fix the problem, check whether installing the vista driver available at your printer manufacturer's website helps.

Step 1:
a. Click Start, go to Control Panel and select Hardware and Sound.
b. Click Printer.
c. If the Printer is offline, it shows "Offline" status. If the Printer is online it shows "Ready".
d. If the Printer is offline, set it to online.
e. Right-click on the printer and select "Use Printer Online".
f. The display should change to ready when the printer is set to online.

Step 2:
If still you are facing issues, then update the printer driver. This should fix the problem.

For further precise instructions, please let me know the Operating Systems installed on the Computer.

Hope this helps..

I could print before but now it says printer is offline and I do not know how to get it back online

There's a button on your printer that says on-line. Press it.
What is the make and model of your printer. Are you directly connected to the printer or is this through a network?

HP Deskjet 6980 won't print. Says offline but i don't see how to turn it back online. was working. now not.

Printers often go off line for no reason. It can be genuinely off line or the pc is just not seeing the printer anymore To put it back on line all you need to do is open the print queue (double click on the printers icon in printers devices/ printer and faxes) go to File and in the drop down list it will say "Use printer Offline or Use printer online. click on it and if the pc is seeing the printer if will change and the printer will then start up and print. If this does not work then check your cable to the printer or your network connection to reestablish the connection.

Its working off line

1. Open Start menu.
2. Click on "Printers and Faxes"
3. Double-click the icon for your printer.
4. On the menu bar, click "Printer" to open the printer menu. Click on "Use Printer Offline" to remove the check mark. This will bring your printer back online.

If this did not help, check the printer itself & make sure it is not set to be offline.
