    4. Bidirectional copying

       

  4. Scroll to the bottom of the screen and click SAVE.

      

  5. Now plug your USB Printer into the USB port on your router.

  6. Scroll down to the bottom of the page again to where is says Attached Devices. You should now see your printer listed. If you do not, hit the refresh button.

  7. Once your printer is listed, you are done configuring the router.

  8. In Spotlight search for Systems Preferences and select Systems Preferences.

     

  9. Once Systems Preferences opens, click on Print & Scan.

Troubleshoot Tuesdays: Wireless Connection for MAC's

Is your MAC constantly disconnecting from your wireless network?  We recently read a blog post by Michael Hyatt* regarding how to fix this very problem.

To resolve the issue, Try these 5 simple steps:

1. Go to Apple Menu on the upper left-hand corner of the screen. Select System Preferences>Network Icon.

2. In the dialog box, Click on the Advanced tab in the lower right-hand corner. Drag your network entry to the top of the list (It may take a few tries to grab and move to the top of the list.)

3. Click Apply Now and shut down the computer.

4. Next, restart the computer and zap the PRAM (Clearing the PRAM helps with any corruption that may have occurred).

5. To zap the PRAM, hold down the Command (?), Option, P, and R keys simultaneously immediately after re-starting the system. You must do this before the gray screen appears. Don’t let go of the keys until you hear the startup sound for the second time.

If this does not solve the problem, please contact us at support@sabaitechnology.com.
