Make sure the top dial on the camera is set to “P”

Is the camera set to USB mode?

Reset the camera to factory defaults.

“Reset to Factory Defaults” is in the camera menus.  Put the camera into P mode on the shooting dial.  Creative modes display the camera’s full menus.  Basic shootinng modes have simple menus, which are a subset of the full menus. 

 

What directions are you following to connect?  I am getting the impression you are winging it, and it is not working.  You can download the full instruction manual from Canon Support.  They have a wireless instruction manual, too.
