What is this printer? Connecting how?

 

The usual way to fix wifi printers is to find the printer maker's utility, the software that runs on your operating system. Then use that to connect the printer to the wifi.

 

The router just broadcasts wifi. It is then down to the printer to play ball. There isn't much that you can do on a router, beyond fixing it to a particular IP address, that affects what the printer gets up to.

 

Where possible, using the WPS feature can simplify things.

 

If this 8-digit number is the WPS PIN number then, there is support for the R6220, including a manual, somewhere at the end of this link:

 

>>> R6220 | Product | Support | NETGEAR <<<

 

Read the section Use the WPS Wizard for WiFi Connections.
