You need to supply a lot more information if you expect to get help here.

What printer do you have? make and model?

How is it connected to your system? USB, parallel print cable?

What is the make and model of your system hardware? Laptop or desktop?

I have no idea what you mean by connecting via ethernet? P;ease explain.

WiFi??? Just what do you want to accomplish?

Can you print Test Page?

What have you done so far, other than ask for help here?

My apologies. New at this. I found a fix. I changed routers from a Netgear AC1900 Model R7000 to an Asus AC1750. Thank you for your time and suggestions for the future.
