I can't connect my printer to my new router. I have a Pixma MX490.
When I follow the instructions to connect, it displays my router, but doesn't give me the option to enter a passcode. It says "connecting" then "Failed to connect to the wireless router."
From my LAN printout:
- Connection is inactive
