Canon Selphy CP1200 - The printer could not be detected.


I have a major problem.

I cannot get the CP1200 driver to find my printer when installing the driver and setting up the wifi printing method.

I have Win 8.1 x64.

CP1200 is connected to my wi-fi network. It is listed in printers tab in the network window in Windows.

I have tried different methods like disabling antivirus and firewall but nothing works.


PS. I can print from my smartphone via wi-fi.






Do you have the option to specify the printer's IP address?  If so, use it.

No, I do not have this option.

Where can I find it?
