I have a client that has this printer working fine until 2 months ago but right now I'm getting problems to get the WIfi connection
The scenario as:
- Dlink Router without password, with MAC Filter enabled.
- Printer's MAC address allowed (in the Wifi's list)
- Manual IP set in printer configuration page
Now the printer only get the connection to Wifi if I disable the MAC Filter in Dlink. If the filter as enabled, the printer stays offline (with blue led "blinking").
Solved! Go to Solution.

you able to connect it without filtering, then in the mac address filtering list add the mac address from an auto-populated list rather than manually typing it? then enable filtering? What model dlink router is it? Also are there other devices that are connected to the router using the filtering?

Thanks for reply.
Dlink model is DSL -2750B.
The Printer's mac addres as typed manually and also I get the MAC from the list of devices connected to Dlink (when filter as disabled) and in both cases the problem persists.
Other devices like laptops and smartphones connect normally to WIFI with filter enabled.

Were you able to resolve this? Also had you tried disabling the filter, connecting the printer, and then enabling the filter whilst the printer was already connected? Unfortunately if you haven't resolved this I'd recommend disabling the MAC filter and instead implementing encrypted network passphrase protection, WPA2 if all their devices will support it.
