Pro-100, no CD, No Mini Master download to connect to new wifi

Hi,

 

I'm having trouble connecting my computer wirelessly to my Pixma Pro-100. My Wifi has changed and I have a MacBook Pro without a CD drive. The printer is still connected to the old Wifi network name when I print the report.

 

I saw in a past discussion that Pro-100 Mini Master can be downloaded in Drivers and Software and used to re-set up the printer, but it doesn't seem to exist anymore or at least doesn't exist for my Mac OS.

 

Any suggestions on what can be done?

 

Thanks!

Sarah

Thanks, jrhoffman75,

I had tried this multiple times and everytime I got the blue light to flash and hit the WPS button, the error light would flash yellow on the printer. It's still "connected" to the old internet Smiley Sad

You could download and try the IJ Network Tool. It’s available for Mojave, so should work with all versions.

Hi imbrium,

 

First, to reset your PIXMA PRO-100, please press and hold the RESUME/CANCEL button then release the button when the POWER lamp flashes 15 times.

 

Next, please download and instal the Canon PRINT Inkjet/SELPHY app on a mobile device.

 

Please place your PIXMA PRO-100 in cableless setup mode:

Then follow the steps in the appropriate page below to set up your PIXMA PRO-100 for wireless use using that app:

Hi thanks for your reply!

I followed all directions, but the app is unable to find the printer on the network Smiley Sad

I figured it out, in case anyone else is having this issue!  I had to delete the printer driver completely from my computer again. Then I downloaded the network tool but pushed WPS button before putting the computer in wireless setup mode.

The computer recognized the printer and I was able to confirm the new network. Then I added the printer through System Preferences. This is for MacOS. Thanks for all your suggestions!
