Pixma MX490 - Router Overlap screen instead of Passphrase screen


I'm trying to setup the wireless connection to the wifi in my office, but after I select the wifi network to connect to, I get a Router Overlap screen instead of the Passphrase screen. From there my options are to select one or multiple routers. No matter which option I choose or which routers I choose, the connection fails.

I am having the same problem. Has a solution been found?

Hi pwiggins,


The error described by dnolan is not something we have encountered before and may be caused by th netwok settings.  I would recommend resetting your network router then attempt to connect the printer using a different method in the Setup Guide.

If you continue to have trouble, I suggest contacting our telephone or chat support staff by clicking on Contact Us for contact information.

I am encountering this error as well. My home network is setup where I have multiple APs broadcasting the same SSID due to building materials in my home interfering with signal strength. My MX492 is within 10 feet of one AP. All worked exceptionally well until I meshed multiple APs into one wireless network with a common SSID. Now it says router overlap; no other wireless device in my home takes issue with the new setup. Please advise


did you find the solution to this issue?  I am now having this issue also.


I'm having the same issue on my TR4520: Router Overlap: use a single router.

I only have one router - the one that was listed and that I accepted. Why can't we get a fix from Canon?
