Specs: Windows 10
the printer is connected wireless, through another computer that is connecting the printer. Although it is shown 'connected' in this PC, but it is unable to print anything, even a test page.

Did this configuration for this printer ever work correctly? If so, the issue might be that the local machine is in a sleep or hibernate mode. See if things work when the local machine is active.

Hi GC,

please clarify 'unable to print even a test page'

I ask as this function is purely local and unrelated to whether a printer is connected or not.

Good Luck - Keep us posted.

✔ Best Answer
if the printer is connected to one computer and you wish to share it - allow it to be used by another over the network - then the printer must be in a "Shared" state.
