    10 year old printer, with super tiny old LCD on front.
    the manual covers that, did you read that first, no 2 printers made have the same steps and rule
    in generic form sure, but not the same in practice
    can I guess you are at home, Not told
    and have computer do you , not told
    and have and OS on that computer not told (windows 10)_ but is a wild wild guess me....
    do you own your own wifi router? or does your ISP own it and be locked down by them. IDK, only you know that

    first off if at home,
    do you have a cell phone or computer that that can test your home wifi>? yes/no
    if yes, does it work? that?
    yes good, not set the printer up the same way, with SSID ,WPA2 and your wifi passphase
    I guess you lost your wifi credentials,? that It AT HOME.

    IF ALL THINGS FAIL FOR WIFI AT HOME THEN ASK (your self or hubby or? dad) WHO OWNS IT NEXT.
    IF YOU OWN IT SET THE PASSWORDS IN THE WIFI ROUTER YOUR SELF (RTM READ THE MANUAL IN IT)
    OR IF NOT Yours but is owned by the ISP, internent service provider ask them
    or even look on the rear of the router for a tag saying there are your CREDENTIALS

    some printers must be reset.
    if some are in USB mode the WIFI option is dead. so must be reset.
    then read the manual how.https://www.manualslib.com/manual/201800...

    read page 156
    if wps method is not allowed on your router , you just do it by hand.
    most modern routers do not allow PIN method now, its unsafe this way.

    the manu's on this printer are complex but what you need is Wi-Fi Direct
    not usb, not ethernet that both work better to any PC.
    Wi-Fi Direct
    there is in the same menu's wifi on and off, so turn that on first.

    I found the manual way to set up wifi, on page 162, and 163
    USING THE MENU BUTTOn
    it tells you this
    Before starting, you will need to know the network name (SSID) of your wireless
    network and the network key if it is encrypted. This information was set when
    the access point (or wireless router) was installed. If you do not know about your
    wireless environment, please ask the person who set up your network
    that means you need to know YOUR WIFI CREDENTIALS
    press
    menu
    network
    wlan
    press wizard
    it asks for wifi key and you tell it that.
    or not wizard
    Custom: In this mode, users can give or edit manually their own SSID
    , or choose the security option in detail.. this always works, doing it MANUALLY

    the used printer is using the old owners PW and will never work, like that. (but usb does and ethernet wired)
    learn to RTM
    learn to do page 162, manual way, using only YOUR credentials.
    SSID name
    wpa2
    wifi pass phrase, AKA password.

Check both sides of the cartridge for pins that make contact to the cartridge. Ensure they are clean and not covered with toner. Also make sure to use genuine cartridges.

Your are using own wi-fi network or someone else? If its yours you might have put your last name as a SSID i.e your network name, which is why its being listed on your wi-fi list.
Do let me know whole scenario.
