Establishing wireless connection for PIXMA PRO -100

Having difficulty setting up wireless function for new printer.  Effort to link printer to network asks for WPS PIN and I don't have a clue where to physically locate it.  Any ideas?

The WPS "button" (either physical or virtual) is associated with your router.

 

This may be of help:

Thanks for the response but it is a block on MS printer wireless search that requires an actual character entry.  Says it is found on the machine or information provided ... I don't see it.

It would be on the router, not the printer. If you can’t see it maybe go to the router support site.

lrkearns..  Sorry but we can acertain or do this for you.  The information is available on your router as jrhoffman75 mentioned.

 

I've included example photos, but yours will look different based on the router you have.  Log into your router's admin portal for this information.  You can use a WPS PIN or passkey to connect the printer to your wireless network.  Have removed mine for privacy.

I would like to report that this issue has been resolved by going to Canon live chat.  The PIN isn't 'on' the machine...it is 'in' the machine.  By holding down the power button for a period, the machine prints out all the technical info needed to make connection.  Live Chat is worth a try in many instances.  Thanks to those who gave this some thought.
