If you can't change or reset the settings, there is a chance that the access to the network settings have been locked. You can try logging in as an admin and checking the restrictions using the steps in the link HERE. You can also try resetting all of the settings on the printer and trying the setup again. If you continue to have issues, you can contact support over the phone at 1-800-652-2666. Our agents can help check the admin settings and help with any device manager ID/PIN issues.
