Pixma 3220: Wireless Printing No engaging


Hello!  We have successfully completed the installation of our Pixma Software (from the disk).  

1. I have used the IJ Network tool to detect the printer wirelessly.  

2. It successfully detects the Canon MG3200 series (Type: Canon, Connected to: LAN)

3. I click the printer from the menu, then select "Configuration"

4.  The configuration window opens and lists the name of the network (which is correct), and lists the detaisl of my network.  When I select "Configuration", the password is correctly entered.

5. When I press "OK", a window opens asking "Send the modified settings to the printer?  To start transmission, click "ok".  To return to the...etc". I click "OK"

6.  No other messages pop up.  Everything seems to have worked in transmitting - but I am guessing.

7.  The printers Wireless lamp is lit.  I have tried deactivating the lamp and reactivating the lamp.

8.  When I go into System Preferences and select "printers and scanners", the printer is listed, but is "offline".  Obvilously, when I connect the USB, it recognizes the printer as "online", but I cannot get this to connect wirelessly at all.  When I attempt to print, the system tells me the "printer is not connected"


I am using a MAC.
