Why does my printer say it isn't responding?
posted by jonathanstrange to technology (4 answers total)
I'm trying to set up a new wifi network, and have connected my Canon iP5300 printer to the wireless router. I have installed the Vista driver for the printer on the laptop, which of course is running Vista.
I've connected the printer to the router, it's appearing when I look at the settings of the router, and it appears on my computer and I've set it up so that it is shared, and the computer has access to it.
However, when I click on the printers settings, and go to "Maintenence" and click on the "view printer status" it shows that the printer isn't responding, and the printer won't print any test pages.
I've followed all the instructions in the manual, however that was written for XP, so I'm not sure if there are any other settings that I need to change...
All help would be GREATLY appreciated!
