Trying to connect PIXMA mg3500 to WiFi. It says to press access point. WHAT is the access point? Where do I find it? There's nothing on my modem/router to press.
You should be connecting to your home wireless LAN. Any existing devices on your WLAN may have initially connected in a similar way. Wireless routers require that you enter a MAC address of a new device to grant it access.
Most wireless routers have a shortcut means of connecting, which involves temporarily suspending security, and listening for a device to broadcast a specific code. Pressing a button on the router is one way to initiate this temporary mode, which typically lasts less than a minute.
You may not have a button to press if you are using a wireless router from your internet provider. Consult the owner's manual of your wireless router. Some routers are activated through software, which requires that you use a computer to access the router in an "admin" mode.
Again, read your router's manual. The Canon printer manual is using generic terms, and so am I.
