Having trouble getting your network printer to work? Don't worry, it's a common issue. To get your printer up and running again, you'll need to restart the device, turn it off and on, and check the status of the network connection.

A network printer is a device that can be used by multiple computers on a home or office network. This article will teach you how to add a network printer to Windows or macOS, and how to share a local printer with your network.
