Cannot connect MX860 to computer wirelessly

[ Edited ]

I am not able to connect my MX860 to my computer, wirelessly.  It was just fine until a tech from Century Link came to fix a TV and internet problem.  As soon as he left, the  printer will not connect.  I have tried to do it, but I can't seem to understand what all of the directions are telling me to do.  I can not find the original disc and it appears that I might need to go that route.  If anyone can help me, I would really appreciate it!  By the way, I have all Apple products.

You need to go to this page:

 

http://www.usa.canon.com/cusa/support/consumer

 

and you need to follow the process there. 

 

Just download and install those utilities there. Start with the canon IJ network utility and then try your setup again.

 

Let me know if that works.

Re: Cannot connect MX860 to computer wirelessly

I am just now having the same problem.  I am moving my printer from my old iMac to my new iMac, and cannot get the printer to work wirelessly.  I have downloaded all the drivers, more than once and have tried everything I can think of.  

Where do I go for help, other than buy another printer.  

Thanks for any help anyone can give me.

I was finally able to connect wirelessly following the instructions in the manual.
