Re: PIXMA MG5720 will not connect to wifi router

Thank you for the information. 

 

I followed the steps but after I get to "Other Settings" there is no "Advanced Settings" option. I can choose from:

 

Set Printer Name

TCP/IP Settings

WSD Settings 

Bonjour settings 

LPR protocol settings

PictBridge Communication

Direct connection settings (greyed out, not able to select)

 

Please advise.

Re: PIXMA MG5720 will not connect to wifi router

I can go through those steps just fine. My issue is my internet is password protected - but when selecting on the printer it begins to try to connect without a prompt to imput the password. So the result, it tries to connect and then gives me an error message. Not suprising as I was unable to provide the password.
