Greetings and salutations! I brought an old personal printer into work because the "official" printer is too far away for quick print jobs. I've connected my laptop and the MX522 to my phone hotspot and my laptop sees the printer and prints to it. However, the printer will not access "the internet." It fails to connect to do a firmware update, nor will it connect to Google Cloud Print.
Help me, Obi-Wan! You're my only hope!

Hello there elsedee,
Prior to trying to print via cloud print, did you register the printer with google cloud print? If not, please click HERE and scroll down until you see Registering the printer to Google Cloud Print.
If the printer successfully registers with Cloud Print, please try again. Also normally for a firmware, its best to be connected to a dedicated network. While Canon printers can connect and be used with Hot Spots, its not supported by Canon.
We look forward to your reply.
