    I need to change the status of my printer to online


    How do I change the status of my printer from offline to online? We had a new BT modem installed yesterday and the printer was working afterwards, but it's not working today.


    I've searched the Community and have found loads of threads with no answer so I'm hoping that I'll have better luck than all those who didn't. The new modem has its blue (working) light showing.


    I can't find a forum to put this in and CPC options appear irrelevant so would a Moderator please move this as appropriate. TIA

    :)
