I'm having a problem installing my Xerox Phaser 3020 Printer Driver on Ubuntu 16.04 LTS. When I use my usb printer cable to connect my notebook to the printer it works fine. But I'm unable to find my printer via Wi-Fi and use it by wi-fi.

Does anyone know a solution for this problem?

  • so for these printers they need to be wirelessly connected to the router; I see on a user guide pdf that there is a wps button: your router should have one too: that allows the two to "talk" .. have you set it up that way? then ubuntu should "see" the printer and offer to config ............. – pdc Jun 24 '17 at 23:54

    I fund the solution. The printer have and option to print all the wps configuration if you have the wps button pressed for 10 segs. Then I fund the ip adress of the printer. Next I turned on the printer and the printer was on the wifi conection of ubuntu desktop. The printer manual have the default password for the wifi conection of the printer. Then when the printer is linked to the PC via WIFI, i was able to find the printer on the ubuntu configuration centre for the printers. Cheers! – Kamo Weasel Jun 25 '17 at 2:44

I have a similar printer and I had a similar problem.

My printer: Xerox Phaser 3260 Printer Wifi (On Ubuntu 18.10)

Steps to install:

1) After you connect your printer, press the button cancel (the orange one) for about 4 seconds, a page with all the printer's information will be printed.

2) Go to "Wi-fi Direct Information" title and check for Current SSID and Network key.

3) Log in into the Wifi using the network key provided on the paper.

4) Go to your browser and type the ip address described in "IP Address" just two lines above Current SSId.

5) Find the default admin password of the web console. In my case is "admin:1111" and log in.

6) Go to "properties -> Wifi -> Wifi and click on "Wizard", then you'll be able to configure your wifi connection. (See below)

Webconsole 7) Configure the printer. In my case was auto detected by Ubuntu.

8) Test the printer.

And you're done!
