Re: Driver installation gives invalid IP address error

Thanks for the reply James, allbeit a little late. I contacted Canon customer support and was on the phone with them for 45 miutes. They walked me through re-setting up the printer (something I had done countless times prior to calling), only to have them tell me that it was an issue on my end with the computer/network. I completly disagreed, I hookup my one year old canon printer that I replaced and had no issues. I ended up sending the printer back to Amazon, wich is a whole other story. 


I bought a Brother printer and had it unpacked and running with no issues in 20 minutes. 


Needless to say both Canon and Amazon lost my business because of this printer. And I have been buying Canon printers for over 20 years.
