MF8280cw connection issues

We just purchased a MF8280cw. I have been trying to configure it to connect to our Wi-Fi which incidentally has multiple devices already connected. I am unable to get past the connecting message. I have double checked and reentered the SSID numerous times. Any thoughts or suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

I have never seen an error message. It just keeps cycling and trying to connect. I have left it on overnight only have it keep cycling and trying to connect to our wireless network. Hope that helps... thanks in advance

Re: MF8280cw connection issues

Seriously...9 days since I last posted and longer than that since a Canon reply.  What kind of support is Canon providing....disappointed.

Re: MF8280cw connection issues

Also Windows 7, 64 bit.

 

The printer just sits there doing nothing. If I cycle the power it will connect to the netowrk but nothing printers, then a day or so later, it doesn't have access to the network any more and I have to go through the WPS hassle again.

 

Any hints to:

1) Get it to print?

2) Stay connected to the network?

MF8280cw Network/Cloud printing issues

 

I am unable to register my printer for cloud printing.

 

1) I wish someone can inform the procedure for full factory hard reset, to bring all the setting back to box pack condition.

This will help me to start again from the scratch.

 

2) I am also having doubt in my network, some ports may not be open.

Can you please inform what TCP/UDP/Network ports need to be open to run this MF8280Cw in home network for cloud printing or network functions.

Appreciate the list of all relevant ports.
