This might help

Press the SETUP button on your printer's control panel.
Using the arrows, select DEVICE SETTINGS, press OK.
Select LAN SETTINGS and press OK.
Select Wireless LAN Setup and press OK.
If a message appears to press the WPS button, press STOP to cancel.
Select STANDARD SETUP from the next screen that appears and press OK.
Highlight your access point or router and press OK.
Press OK again to confirm the access point name.
Enter your passphrase using the keypad to the right.
At the screen where you enter your passphrase, in the top right corner of the LCD screen you should see a :1 . This indicates that you are in numeric entry mode. If you press the asterisk key (*) it will switch to :A or uppercase letter mode, pressing asterisk again with switch to lowercase letter mode. To enter a letter in either letter mode, you will press the associated number key to cycle through the available letters. For example: To enter a letter "c", you will press the "2" key three times.
Press OK when done.
The LCD screen will say "Connected" if the password is correct.

Thank you so much for taking the time to help me with this problem.  I just assumed that the keypad was in numeric mode to start.  My password is all numbers so it seemed to be working until I tried to use the zero and then would just beep,  I did finally figure it out and am happily printing away.   Your answer was greatly appreciated!!

I'm having the same problem - we switched internet providers and I need to enter the new network password; the keyboard won't let me get to the numbers.

Thank you so much. Spent a ridiculous amount of time online with the support team insisting my router was bad. I have 5 other devices attached to the router. The problem was their failure to deviate from the script and actually listen to the problem.

Thank you X 10!!!  Canon should have these off-the-wall instructions posted EVERYWHERE!!!! My old Canon was WAY easier you just kept hitting the "2" to get the two ... it went thru all three letter abc in lowercase then upper case ABC then the number 2 ....  #whydoescanonhateme???
