mp drivers updated but can not connect wirelessly


Laptop: Dell Inspirion 15

OS: Windows 10

Printer: MG3122


Unable to connect wirelessly.


I have tried the WPS button connect. Receive E-2-1 everytime.


I have tried the USB cable temporary. Always tells me that the mp drivers are in use.


I have the most up to date mp drivers for the printer. I have used the diagnostic with the printer and everything checks out. 


I have tried to uninstall but printer uninstall wizard will not pop up so can not start from scratch yet.


What can someone suggest?
