Today the MacBook Pro M1 `16", 12.3.1 stopped communicating with the Canon Pixma Pro-100s printer. There is a communication error and the IJ Network driver does not appear in the printer and scanners preference window. Nor does it appear in the IJ Network tool dialogue window, when attempting to re-establish communication from there.
The printer is connected to the WiFi network, as it will print from a MacBook Air and an iPhone.
I have tried every solution I can think of: reinstalled the driver and IJ Network software, and restarted the computer. Updated the firmware. No attempted solutions have solved the issue. The printer was printing from this computer before, but does not do so any longer via the home WiFi network.
Is there a solution?

I am trying what you suggest, but am being sent on a circle of contacts, or dead ends. Perhaps because I am based in the UK and the link takes me to the US.

After spending some time with a very kind Canon support chat agent yesterday, the issue has been solved. The problem was solved by switching the router communication setting from 5 GHz to 2.5 GHz. Immediately the printer drive appeared, and the printer operated as before.
