Worst Printer and Printer support ever!! There is no rhyme or reason why it goes offline and then mysteriously starts printing again!! I have tried everything! Most solutions here will not work because the boxes stay grayed out. Others just don't work period. I contacted suppoort and they have me jump through hoops that lead nowhere. I know it is the printer because everything else is working just fine. My internet connection, my laptop prints at work on other printers. I switched from HP for a better quality printer but it's completely useless if I can't use it when I need it!!

I have had my Canon MX920 for over a year. About a month ago, the printer started disconnecting from the wifi router, sometimes in the middle of a job. Nothing has changed since I bought the printer. The only way I can get it to work is to turn it off and turn it back on again, but even then, it will disconnect in the middle of a scanning job,
I have a Macbook Pro and a Netgear router.

What is the connection status of the printer?
1. Press the Menu Button on the printer.
2. Use the arrow buttons to select Setup and press OK.
3. Select Device Settings and press OK.
4. Select LAN Settings and press OK.
5. Select Confirm LAN Settings and press OK.
6. Select Print LAN Details. Then confirm the printout.
7. A sheet will print displaying the network information.
Is the link status 'Active' or 'Inactive'?
What is the SSID?
What is the signal strength percentage?

I can't thank you enough for this solution! I've been looking for help with this issue for hours. Some were far too convoluted, too technical and/or didn't work, regardless.
This was a simple and easy way to once again become connected and print.
Truly appreciate the assistance!

The printer scanner works great.
Problem (for me) was the windows network driver - which made it look like the printer configuartion was the issue.
As it happens I installed linux mint.
Now network, scnner, printer - all works great.
