Cannon MX 922 will not connect to new network

[ Edited ]

I have a cannon mx 922. Using windows 10 OS.

 

This printer was previously connected to a home network that has now been changed. 

 

I attempted to set up a new wireless connection however when I get to the step when asked to select which network to connect to it does not give me an option to enter a passphrase and attemtps to connect to the access point unsuccessfully

 

I have attempted uninstalling the printer and re-installing without success

 

Also have attempted to clear the LAN settings and this did not work

Re: Cannon MX 922 will not connect to new network

Hi cchris16,

 

There are two setting on the MX922 that may need to be changed to make it work better on your network. Normally these settings are enabled. I recommend that you disable them. To do this, please follow these steps directly from the printer:

 

1.  Press the MENU button. 

 2.  Select SETUP, then press the OK button. 

 3.  Select DEVICE SETTINGS, then press the OK button.

 4.  Use the arrow buttons to select LAN SETTINGS, then press the OK button.

 5.  Use the arrow buttons to select OTHER SETTINGS, then press the OK button

 6.  Use the arrow buttons to select WIRELESS LAN DRX SETTING, then press the OK button.

 7.  Use the arrow buttons to select DISABLE, then press the OK This will return you to Other Settings menu.

 8.  Use the arrow buttons to select TCP/IP SETTINGS, then press the OK button.

 9.  Use the arrow buttons to select IPv6, then press the OK button.

10.  Use the arrow buttons to select YES at confirmation screen [LAN communication may be disabled depending on your environment. Set this setting?] then press the OK button.

11.  Use the arrow buttons to select ENABLE/DISABLE IPv6, then press the OK button.

12.  Use the arrow buttons to select DISABLE, then press the OK button.  This will return you to IPv6 settings menu where you can press MENU to exit to the main menu.

 

Now both of these settings have been disabled, restart the printer and then try to connect it to your network.

This did not resolve the issue

 

When I attempt to connect I am still not given an option to enter a passphrase so connecting to the protected network fails
