Hi lenkearney,

 

To try and resolve the issue, we will want to ensure that the printer has proper wireless communication occurring. For proper wireless communication to occur, it is important that network devices are suitably located. Please ensure the following:

 

1. The printer and the access point are located within the wireless connectivity range with no obstacles between them.

 

2. The distance between the printer and the access point is not too far. If they are too far, move them closer together.

 

3. There is no barrier or obstacle between the printer and the access point. In general, connection performance decreases for communications through walls or between different floors. Adjust the locations to avoid such situations.

 

4. There are no sources of radio interference near the printer and the access point. The wireless connection may use the same frequency band as microwave ovens and other sources of radio interference. Try to keep the printer and the access point away from such sources.

 

5. Check if the radio channel of the access point is close to that of other access points nearby. If the radio channel of the access point is close to that of other access points nearby, the connection performance may become unstable. Be sure to use a radio channel that does not interfere with other access points.

Did all that.    printer is in same room as access point and only reports 11% signal strength.

 

sometimes it works, sometimes not.   sometimes takes ten minutes to wake up and find a print in queue.   then takes ten minutes to print- and as I mentioned - very noisy.   THis is not what i expected out of canon.

ps. can print from Mac - not from pc.    if i play with it- i can get it to print from pc - but not from Mac.
