Your printer has a bad IP Board. If it is still under warranty you will have to take it in to an authorized Canon dealer and have them replace the board. Other people have given the solution that it just needs flashed because the boot information is corrupt or missing. This is the case but there it no firmware to download to correct the problem. The board has to be replaced. The repair for this can range in price but the dealership around me wanted $660.

I have a cannon image class MF6540. When I try and print I get an error "out of paper". I have plently of paper. I am able to copy but not print.

I assume you are trying to print from your computer.
The driver for this unit will give you an out of paper message almost any time it won't print for any reason.
If the unit copies, but does not print from your computer, then it is a communication issue. Perhaps uninstall/reinstall the driver?

Canon ImageClass MF6540- works fine for printing, but scanning complains connection problem on Dell Dimension E521. However my other Dell Dim 9200 computer runs fine for both printing and scanning. What...

Need some clarification about the error.
We need to know the exact error.
Generally all the scannars use TWAIN technology which bridges the scanner with WIA(windows imaging aquisition).
We need to know if WIA which is a part of the operating system is working. For diagonasting we can try using teh scanners and camera wizard from control panel or we can use mspaint even.
If WIA is working in that case the problem may be with the registry values of the scanner.
WE can try making a new user account with admin rights and then we can try installing the scanner. We can even try using Revo uninstaller for uninstallation of the scanner because it will remove all the entries from registry, then we can try scanning.

Exact same problem as OP

Canon support was able to help me with this issue.

First, scanning with the MF Toolbox is only supported via USB, not across the network (scanning across the network generally does work but you need another application that supports it). Second, you must make sure that you have switched the device into USB scan mode. Press the Scan button on the device. If the display says "Network scanning" press it again until it says USB Scanning. From then on, scanning works beautifully.
