First, turn off wifi and connect via USB. Is the camera recognized by EOS Utility 3?

Hi jrhoffman75,
USB cable wasn't in package, I'll try to buy it separately, but it can take some time 🙂

Maybe this will help:

You should have had a cable included in the Canon package.  Did it have a software disc?  Warranty card?

Need a diagram or details about connecting the set up

Mine stopped working recently as well. Are you on Windows 10?

Yes, but I am using a USB cable.  Make sure your camera is in Wi-Fi mode.  It cannot switch between USB and Wi-Fi on its' own.

I am a fairly savvy tech person. The camera is certainly in WiFi mode, there is no way to force it in to pairing mode otherwise. You have to connect to a wireless network first, then pair. The pairing is where EOS Utility fails. It just sits there looking for the camera and never finds it.

 

This all worked great until the latest Windows 10 Update.

My 80D also did not come with a usb cable I just bought the body,battery.

Now for your wifi hook up after you get your camera ready to pare with your phone  open up your wifi on your phone leave the wifi screen open  then hit  on your camera the phone icon you should see your phone pare up with the camera.
