MG8120 have to use Easy Setup and have problem interfacing it with router

Wireless LAN-Have no problem with "Directly enter the access point.  It does this by default and you just press "OK"

Here comes the snag.  It then asks to "Directly enter the access point name".  

 

Have tried all kinds of combos so far nothing works.  What is a "access point name"?

 

The printer has worked fine with Dell with Windows 7 and new IMac with Yosemite 10.10 for past two weeks

 

anxiously awaiting suggestions.  Thanks

Hi bigezgene,

 

The access point name is the name of your wireless network, also known as the SSID.  For more information on installing the printer wirelessly using the Easy Setup method, please click here.
