MF8280cw connection issues

We just purchased a MF8280cw. I have been trying to configure it to connect to our Wi-Fi which incidentally has multiple devices already connected. I am unable to get past the connecting message. I have double checked and reentered the SSID numerous times. Any thoughts or suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

Thanks for quick response.


From the menu of printer, i click update firmware and it did all the things directly.

I also checked if there is any new firmware. 


I hope this was the correct step.



Please note that still i am facing the same issue with clound.


As i have made so many changes in settings, can you please advise me if i can reset the printer settings to defualt / factory.




My printer is totally useless now.

It is even not printing, not scanning.


It is just working as copier.


I did firmware update directly from the printer.


Can you advise the procedure to reset.

Hello sainmym,


I recommend contacting us at 1-800-OK-CANON (1-800-652-2666) for further assistance.  I understand that the forum may be your preferred method of communication; however, speaking with our telephone technical support group will be very beneficial in this case.

The printer just sits there doing nothing. If I cycle the power it will connect to the netowrk but nothing printers, then a day or so later, it doesn't have access to the network any more and I have to go through the WPS hassle again.


Any hints to:

1) Get it to print?

2) Stay connected to the network?
