Re-connect the printer's power and interface cables after all hardware upgrade kits have been added to the printer.
It is recommended that you update the printer firmware to verify that the printer and wireless module are at the same and latest version. See Updating Printer Firmware.
The Wireless Connectivity Module needs to have Wi-Fi and Bluetooth configured for use to communicate with the printer.
The printer by default is set to operate on a Wi-Fi network or  Ethernet LAN with DHCP used for personal networks. The network automatically provides a new network IP address each time the printer is turned on. The Windows printer driver uses a Static IP address to connect to the printer and is usually used in controlled networking environments. See Setting Up the Wi-Fi Print Server Option.
