Re: How to Disconnect from my old wifi

Hi caysielynn,


Since you are connecting to a different network, you can initialize the machine settings to set the network settings back to the default settings, then re-enable the wireless setting of the printer and reinstall the drivers on your computer to connect it to your new network.  To do this, please follow these steps from the printer:

1. Press and hold the STOP button and release it when the Alarm lamp flashes 21 times. This will initialize the machine settings.

2. Next, please turn off the printer, unplug the power cord and leave it out for at least 10 minutes, then plug it back in and turn it back on.

3. Once the printer comes back on, please press and hold the Wi-Fi button, then release it when the ON lamp flashes.

4. Press the COLOR button, then the Wi-Fi button in this order. The wireless LAN setting of the printer is now enabled.


Once the wireless LAN setting is enabled, please reinstall the printer on your computer using the latest drivers from the Canon USA website here.  Should you need further assistance, we ask that you please contact a Canon technical support representative here for further assistance. A representative will be happy to assist you free of charge.
