MG4200 connected by Wifi in error status

This has worked previously for some years on my W10 PC.  Have reinstalled drivers from Canon site. Have switched off and restarted both PC & printer.  Have reconnected to router by WPS.  No joy.  No status messages on printer.  Diagnostics on PC cannot communicate with printer.

My only remaining plan is to try a wired connection, when I find a USB type B connector
