Who Me Too'd this solution


Thank you, thank you, previous posters...

I was tearing my hair out trying to get this to work on my Mac (and PC!) with both a cable and the Wifi.

Don't try to use your computer to set it up.

The correct answer is:

  1. Download the "Canon Print" app to your phone.
  2. Put your Printer in Wifi Setup mode (Hold Wifi Button until top buton blinks twice and quickly let go)
  3. The "Canon Print" app will then find it and allow you connect it up to your regular Wifi Network.

TLDR: The printer uses 2.4Ghz. Your computer and router wanna to stay comfy at 5Ghz. Your Phone is more forgiving of this discrepancy.

*Posting this more for my own reference so when I try to do this again in a couple years, I'll be able to Google my own answer.
