How to turn off Wireless on Printers

This document covers how to disable the wireless services that some models of printers emit even when powered off.

Some printers offer wireless services that interfere with the campus wireless network. Here is how to turn this service off to ensure wireless functioning in your area for yourself and community members. Alternatively, you can register the printer with the NetReg system to print wirelessly using the campus network not the printers independent network. To do so follow this link: How to connect your device to UWGB-NetReg

For most HP Printer models:
1.) Navigate to Setup > Network > Wireless Radio (on some models, this is towards the bottom of the scrollable menu)
2.) Turn the Wireless Radio OFF.

For HP Photosmart d110:
Some versions may allow you to press the blue "wireless" button on the bottom front of the printer to turn the light off and service off. You may need to hold the button for 5 seconds to turn the light off.

For HP Laserjet p1102w:
Press and hold the "wireless" image button on the left-hand button panel for 5 seconds to turn the light off and service off.

For most EPSON models:
1.) Press the Setup button
2.) Select Wi-Fi/Network Settings
3.) Select Wi-Fi Setup
4.) Select Wi-Fi Setup Wizard
5.) Select Disable Wi-Fi

For most Canon models:
