Greetings, first-time poster here. Forgive me if this has been addressed elsewhere, but my searches didn't turn up anything.
I appear to have set an admin password on PIXMA PRO 100 and do not recall what it is. I followed the proceedure for in this article (https://support.usa.canon.com/kb/index?page=content&id=ART153112&cat=6228B002&actp=LIST&showDraft=fa...)
Follow the procedure below to initialize the network settings.
Press and hold the RESUME/CANCEL button until the POWER lamp flashes 9 times.
Release the RESUME/CANCEL button.
The network settings are initialized
The network setup was earsed as advertised, but when I go to setup the network again via USB cable connection I get prompted for the admin password in order to update the network settings.
I also tried the suggested default Canon passwords (canon, my serial #, admin, etc.) and nothing works.
I need to print via a network connnection because of the layout of my office. The only way I can connect via USB is to take my laptop of to the printer, which is not an effective workstation.
Any help would be appricated.
WiFi connection - Asus RT-N66U
PC - Windows 10 64-bit

The 9 flash reset procedure only resets the network settings.
The admin password will not be reset.
Please follow the reset procedure on this page from the manual to reset the password:
Once complete, the admin password is set to the default value.
The default username is: ADMIN
The default password is: canon
