Wireless connection


My Canon TS6100 has been connected to my wireless routher for over a year.  ALl of suuden it lost the connection and I cannot get it  to connect.  I am doing the LAN setting manually and its finds my router name but it cannot connect with the signal.  I have moved my prinert down to the first floor to be closer to the router.  I have rebotted my router a number of times, as well as disconnecting/unpulgging my printer.


My son needs this printer for remote school.  ANy hel is appreciated.

Note, the printer can only connect to ta 2.4Ghz broadcast.


If you are using it with a dual or tri-band router, one that uses the same SSID name for all broadcast, it might have difficulty connecting.  In many cases, disabling the 5Ghz broadcast temporarily and/or giving each network a unique name (example) " "MyWireless2.4", "MyWireless5G" can also help.


3rd party anti-virus can also interfere.

I changed my internet provider and need to update the wireless passcode manually on the printer operating panel.  I can enter letters but can't figure out how to enter numbers.  I have a PIXMA G4210 printer.

Hi gill1,


To change the keyboard to access numbers, please press the * key until :1 appears in the upper right corner of the printer's display.
