Printer probs

I often get a message advising me that the computer is having trouble communicating with the printer, and after checking cables, power, rebooting etc, it might be a fireall setting blcking the printer.

Can anyone advise me how to check the firewall settings for the printer.

I see a message when I update the driver that it might have something to do with the printer failing the Windows logo compatability test.Anyone have this propblems, or know IF it is a problem, how I get around it!The printer is just a cheap dell job, but okay for printing the odd kids homework essay etc

How is it connected to your PC: USB cable, network, or Wifi! If it's a USB cable then it's not a firewall problem. The compatibility warning about the printer driver is not a problem.
