Pixma MX490 keeps disconnecting from WiFi

I have been using the Canon PRINT app so that I can scan documents. Both printing and scanning only worked once and then disconnected and won't reconnect. I have tried disabling the IPv6 setting on the printer, but it still disconnects from the app.

Hi AmberC,

 

Let's start by checking the printer's connection to the network.

 

You can print out the network settings of the machine such as its IP address and SSID.

  1. Make sure that the machine is turned on.

  2. Press the Setup button.

    The Setup menu screen is displayed.

  3. Use the button to select Device settings, then press the OK button.
     

  4. Use the button to select LAN settings, then press the OK button.
     

  5. Use the button to select Print LAN details, then press the OK button.

    The LAN settings print.

Much of the information will not be relevant, but the important things to look at are:

  1. Is the connection active or inactive?

  2. Does the SSID (network name) match the one the computer uses?

  3. What is the signal strength?

  4. What is the IPv4 IP address?

I look forward to your reply.

Re: Pixma MX490 keeps disconnecting from WiFi

My MX 490 has every problem that is listed in problems, from set-up to disconnecting from WIFI to incorrectly identifying the level of ink left in the cartridge. I am angry that this machine is a lemon. Unfortunately, I've moved to a different state and cannot return it.

Hi oterry2,

 

Please try reconnecting your PIXMA MX490 to your network.  To do this, please follow these steps:

 

1. Press the SETUP button on your PIXMA MX490.

 

2. Use the left or right button to select Device Settings and press OK.

 

3. Use the left or right button to select LAN Settings and press OK.

 

4. Use the left or right button to select Wireless LAN Setup and press OK.

 

5. Press the STOP button.

 

6. Select Standard Setup and press OK.

 

7. Select your wireless network and press OK.

 

8. Enter your wireless network password and press OK. Please verify the password, as it is case sensitive and if entered

incorrectly, will cause the printer and router to not communicate. To switch between letters and numbers, press the * key.

 

9. Press <OK> on the confirmation screen. The PIXMA MX490 will search for the access point.

 

10. When found, press OK on the Connected to the access point screen.
