Mac OSX High Sierra - cannot see/connect to wireless printers



I've installed latest version of MacOSX (High Sierra) onto 2 of our 3 MBPs. All seemed to be OK with install and running High Sierra except that I can no longer see or connect to any networked printer, via Airprint or other wireless/network means. On the 1 MBP with old OSX (Sierra) I can still see and print from the printer in question so I know the printer itself is fine. 


In terms of attempts to self-diagnose and repair:

 - I've downloaded and installed the Canon driver for High Sierra.

 - I've also reset printers, restarted computer, deleted files from /library/printers, etc. etc. and nothing has worked. 


I'm keen to avoid Ethernet/USB direct connection though it looks like I'm going to have to revert to this old-school way of doing things until a fix is found.


Now to contact Apple Care...


Anyone got any ideas on how to resolve?

Re: Mac OSX High Sierra - cannot see/connect to wireless printers

I live in the USA and purchase my MX870 in the can you help?  I recently upgraded to High Sierra on my Mac laptop and now cannot get my printer to work wirelessly.  I've read the issue with the scanner no longer working!  Not happy!  So if I go to an older version would the wireless printing work again like the scanner???
