So out of a clear blue sky my network connected Canon Pixma MP990 printer "isn't responding". I have tried ALL of the fixes I could find, to no avail. Recycled router and printer, uninstalled and reinstalled drivers, updated drivers, stopped and started print spooler, and several more suggested fixes. It will print from my smartphone, but not from my laptop. It will scan and copy, BUT NOT PRINT, no matter what I try. Router reports it's connected and working; computer (Win 7) reports it online and working; Computer reports signal strength and link quality 100%. I don't know what else to try. Any ideas Folks?

Check to make sure that your computer is on the same Wi-Fi network as the printer. It may be possible that the computer is on a different network.

Just to let eveyone know ... I turned the computer on the next morning and TADA! printer was online and working fine. Who the hell knows! After days of changing settings and back again, trying all of the suggestions from forums and such, turning off and on the pc, turning off and on my router, cable modem and printer, (none of it worked), and pulling my hair out and swearing, one morning it took pity on my frustration and just decided to work. I'm blaming it on Gremlins! Thanks all for your advice and input. I'm a happy printing fiend!
