I connected with my camera to the wifi (EOS Utility mode). Router lists this device as connected. But EOS Utility not showing this device in list so I can't connect Camera to PC.

Any help would be appreciated.

I am not pairing it with my phone. I am pairing it with a Windows 10 laptop. I've tested two of them, and both of the fail in the same way, and both worked less than a week ago.

Pairing with android tablet works great. Pairing with PC via WiFi is where it fails

"Pairing" is a term more often associated with Bluetooth than with WiFi. Is it possible that the pairing with the tablet is a Bluetooth pairing?

While that is colliqually true, the end result here is that a uPNP lsitener is paired with the camera itself to act as a bridge to allow the OS to use the camera as if it were attached to it, so technicallly you are pairing (and the camera even calls this action "pairing").

 

No, it is not using Bluetooth -- at least it better not be. I am not at the machines having the problem now, so I cannot check to see if their bluetooth stack is enabled.

Hi.

I don't even have bluetooth adapter at my PC. Basicly I'm talking about EOS Utility 'Connect via Network/WiFi' functionality

I made a poor choice to use the word pairing instead of connecting.

Not really, the camera even calls it pairing on the screen of my 6D.

This image is from Canon's literature on the EOS 80D.  People hear the word "wireless" and think networkable.  I did it, too.

The camera behaves more like a bluetooth device than a networkable device.  I don't see a PC in the illustration.  Do you?

I think there is some confusion here is the image from the Canon Site:

#4 is what the users here are talking about. That software runs on a PC and is separate from Canon Camera Connect on Smartphones. #4 is broken and no longer works. The camera supports WiFi in the traditional sense that it joins a network via its SSID, provides WEP passwords, obtains an IP address from a DHCP server, etc. I am not sure why we are arguing over what is and what is not wireless.
