Hi Malibo,


1.  Set up printer on wireless network


Press (Menu).

Select <Network Settings> with [^ ] or [ V ], and then press [OK].

Select <Select Wired/Wireless LAN> using [^ ] or [ V ], and then press [OK].

When wireless LAN is set, <Wireless LAN Settings> is not grayed out.

Select <Wireless LAN> using [^ ] or [ V ], and then press [OK].

Turn the machine OFF when the following screen disappears.

Turn OFF the machine and wait for at least 10 seconds before turning it back ON.


2.  Close any anti virus program running in the background. If this can not be done, open the anti virus program and set it up to allow the MF8080cw to install.


3.  Please download and install current driver on the Canon Drivers & Download website by clicking HERE.


4.  If the issue continues, try running the install "As Administrator."
