MF244dw not printing

I've reached my wit's end. Suddenly the printer won't print. 


Router connection w/ Windows 10 64bit


I have:


reloaded drivers x4

reset the WPS on the router x4

rebooted my PC x4

re-initialized the printer x2


Is there something else that I need to do?


I really like the wireless capability but it looks like I need to purchase the optional USB cable as many, many people have issues with wireless connectivity.


Thanks for any help...Knurled

I suggest you look at a reply I made in another thread...  the second half where I discuss setting a static IP.  The same apples here.  It doesn't matter wired or wireless connection.  Once the device is connected to your network with an IP that never changes, you will be able to install your device in windows and any device connecting to your network will be able to find the printer by its IP address.

Hi KnurledNut


In order for us to better assist you, we will need some additional information.  Do you mind answering a few questions so we can get a better picture of your situation?

1.  If you power cycle the router does the issue continue?  "Unplug the power cord to your router and wait a few minutes and plug it back in".  Are you able to print at this point?

2.  How far is your unit from your router/access point?

3.  Did you install using the disk or download the software from Canons website?

4.  Are you receiving a specfic error when you attempt to print?

5.  What is your MF244dw's IP Address?  To view your unit's IP Address using your printer's operation panel, press  (Status Monitor)  <Network Information><IPv4><IP Address>  

6.  Can a copy be made directly from your unit?
