You can disable “Direct Connect” or whatever it is called on your printer and still use it on wi-fi, mediated by your router. Or you can use a wired Ethernet or USB connection. You can disable wi-fi on your TV and use wired Ethernet but I prefer that my smart, but unfaithful, TV not be connected to the Internet.
I have been working on my WIFI signal issues for a while now. Yesterday I received a Republic update and ever since I installed the update everything is working much, much better. Not sure why but I am going to just let it be. I know, problems that go away by themselves can come back by themselves. But I am happy now and will keep my fingers crossed and not stick them in where they don’t belong.
Thanks a lot for all your help. I have learned a lot during the process and appreciate your support.
Could you share with us what the update was?
I am not sure what update it was, just said an update was ready do I downloaded it and installed it. Attached is the version I have now. Hope it helps.
