I can open the MP Navigator and click scan from there and it will import whatever has been scanned. However, when trying to scan using a wireless connection from the printer/scanner, it does not see my computer on the network. USB is my only option.
I think I may have done this to myself. It used to work but I turned off a bunch of items in my start up. I don't remember what I need to turn back on so that the printer will see my computer on the wireless network again. If someone could point me in the right direction, I'd appreciate it.
Thanks in advance.

It's a Windows 10 machine but the problem occurred using Win 7 as well.
I'm not seeing any error messages. when I use the printer/scanner and go to Scan -> Save/Forward/PC - the only location available is USB. My computer doesn't show. It used but doesn't now. I tried scan again but it doesn't show. Interestingly enough, I can print from my laptop to the printer without a problem.
Please make sure that the settings in the MP Navigator are correct:
1. Click on the Windows Start button and the All Apps
2. Click on Canon Utilities, MP Navigator EX and then MP Navigator EX to open that program.
3. Click Preferences.

Canon does not have updated drivers or software that were developed for use with the PIXMA MX882 when used under the Mac OS 10.13 High Sierra operating system; however, you can try downloading and installing the Mac OS 10.12 Sierra versions of the drivers and software from the Canon USA website here to see if this will allow you to scan. You will want to download and install the files listed below in the following order:
CUPS Drivers (from DRIVERS section of webpage)
Scanner Drivers (from DRIVERS section of webpage)
ICA Drivers (from DRIVERS section of webpage)
MP Navigator (from SOFTWARE section of webpage)
Canon IJ Network Tool (from SOFTWARE section of webpage, if using the printer over a network)
If you have any antivirus or firewall software on your computer, please temporarily disable them prior to installing the drivers, as these programs can sometimes prevent the printer from being detected during installation. Once the printer is reinstalled successfully, the protection software can be re-enabled.
Please note, since the Sierra versions of the drivers and software were developed prior to High Sierra being released, they may not work with the High Sierra operating system.
Hope this helps!
