VTBlue, I was excited to see your post. I too have a mac and I am having the same issue. I went into airport utility to adjust my setting.... and unfortunately, they already match your settings. This is driving me crazy.

SMUWiLLD, sorry to hear. Seems odd. Have you tried doing a complete shut-down (not a re-start), re-start, and then gone back in and tried clicking to undo the Airport settings, shutting down again, re-starting and then clicking and re-doing the settings?
Give that a shot.

HERE is the fix!!!! Go to settings then LAN settings then other settings then " wireless LAN drx" and disable it.
Your printer will no longer disconnect!
This is a power saving feature that is malfunctioning.

Thanks to the contributors that recommended changing the LAN Router settings. harrybuckman has it right. Works faster than it ever has from job to job from multiple Mac's and iPads over AirPlay. It all started with El Capitan. It would seem that Cannon would suggest this fix.

My MG6120 continues to do this. How pathetic of Canon dancing around this. Buying a new unit very soon. As another posted stated...." guess what brand I will NOT be buying "!!!! Many Canons. Now I am done. Useless junk. And my unit does not have the drx setting so I cannot even try this work around. GoodBye Canon. Screwing customers over just lost you another one.

I was having this problem also. I was reinstalling the driver everytime I wanted to print. When I used Windows troubleshooting it told me that the printer was not part of the homegroup therefore the network would not look for it.
I just made this fix earlier this morning. This afternoon the printer is still ready (not offline) which tells me that there is hope that the problem has gone away.
Hope this helps others.

I'm most appreciative of your finding this solution. Interestingly, after I ticked the "Enable Access Control" and saved the changes, the printer woke up from its fog, and started printing !!! No recycling of the printer. Terrific solution find - congrats.
