Thanks, Mark. In the elegance stakes, that solution scores zero, I'm afraid! Fortunately, by updating MP Navigator to v4.0.5 and reinstalling the IJ Network Tool in its latest version, all problems with my MG 6150 have been overcome. Took me a couple of hours to sort that out and I would have hoped for an auto-update from Canon, to be honest, but the job's done, thankfully. Hopefully this might help other sufferers.
