HELP! Wireless printer not connecting
Canon Pixma MP640. Dell Latitude D630 running Windows XP. Thomson router.
I have a Canon Pixma MP640 printer that I am trying to set up for wireless printing.
I have used my laptop through a router for months for internet access, so no problem there.
I followed the printer set up instructions for wireless printing and it confirms that LAN connection to router is established. It says 'Thomson router connected, wirelss connection established,' etc.
However when I then go to my laptop and try to print, it says "printer is off line".
If I connect via USB lead, the printer works just fine.
Am I missing something simple here???
