Re: The printer could not be detected on the network message during Canon PIXMA MX922 installation

Hello guys,

 

Would like to share the steps I did to finally get my iP7250 connected to WiFi network after 4 hours of struggling.

 

After trying the WPS and many many restarts, I decided to share the mobile internet from my phone. First reset the printer networksettings (in my case holding oneof the buttons till power led flashed 9 times). Then connected my laptop to that shared connection and during the printer setup process (via USB) I selected an option to manually configure the network. Chosed shared mobile network, put the pssword and... it just worked! The installation process finished successfully, disconnected the USB. Afterwards I opened the installed Canon IJ Network Tool and the printer was successfully found. Opened the configuration there and manually changed the settings (SSID, passphrase, even the fixed IP) to my home WiFi network. Reconnected laptop to homenetwork and... magically the printer was found as well Smiley Wink

 

To me it looks like the WPS function ma be messing something in the printer network settings.

 

I hope this procedure can be applied to other similar cases - even with different printers.

 

Cheers guys! Smiley Wink

Everything was working beautifully with my MX 532 printer.  Then I installed a new router( Asus AC5300 ) and my wireless printing stopped working.  It did not help whether the printer's IP was dynamic or fixed.  The printer was correctly setup.  The problem was with the configuration set in the router.

 

I was able to troubleshoot the cause of the printer not being detected on the network.  There is a setting called "Airtime Fairness" which needed to be disabled.  That option is found on the router's wireless advanc...

I am such an idiot! I hope this might help someone else that might encounter this as the reason for not being able to connect. After hours and days and weeks of installing, uninstalling, resetting, following every single advise I could find... my dumb a$$ FINALLY realized.... gee, if I'm using a VPN i'm invisible on the network...if i'm invisible on the network, my printer won't be able to link up with my laptop ON THE NETWORK THAT I AM INVISIBLE ON!!!!! took 2 seconds to hit the radio button to turn off my invisibility cloak, ran the setup, connected...then put back on my invisibility cloak.
