Canon G4010 series failed wifi negotiation


We see the SSID, and push beyond that to passphrase, enter that, waits for a minute, and responds to the effect it is unable to connect. Several questions around this:

  • what protocol sequence is happening behind the scenes? Does not seem like a 'simple' find router and connect sequence. i.e. are there Canon servers / services behind that connection?
  • are the Canon servers down? have they been discontinued? are they out of support?

I am thinking here has got to be more than a simple straightforward SSID connection involved.

Beyond that, assuming we connect to our router, I have the DHCP tables finding the MAC and assigning a static IP address, one that computers on our internal network can find manually. Verified, that's worked in the past, assuming we can get beyond the wifi connection failed negotiation.
