Pixma mg 6200 not discovered on wireless


Hi and thanks for any help,



 Printer:   Pixma MG6200

 Router:   Linksys ea 6700

 OS: Windows 7


2+ year owner of this printer and I have had to reinstall on numerous occassions in past with no problems.


Now, I can not print via wireless.  Windows stated that it is off line via the windows diagnostic trouble shoot.  So I uninstalled and reinstalled via USB.  I utilized the WPS router feature to connect printer to router with no apparent difficulty.  However, when I go to complete the installation the printer is not discovered.  I double checked that network discovery is enabled. I can use printer via wired.


The network configuration page is as follows:

Any help will be greatly appreciated.




We had a 2hour power outage yesterday. Today one of our 3 computers would not print, though connecting to the internet OK. Just as your own diagnosis, so was ours.


We tried many of the solutions here, but the really only simple way was to delete the Mx6250 printer from the Acer Ferrari 1 and re-install the drivers from Canon.
