I suspect you have tried to install the printer wirelessly in the normal way but what you have probably not realised is that you have to have the printer cabled to the pc. Now use the cd and follow the install procedure for wireless connection. This is the only way you will get wirless connectivity to work. i am a Canon engineer and this is a common problem because like all of us we are impatient and rush the job. It took me quite a few hours before I found out that without the cd you aint gonna do it.

have fun.

Try plugging it in directly.
Sometimes the wifi printer has to be set up AFTER the hardwire setup.
If you are desparate, plug it in directly to your computer to get your job done and figure out the wifi later.

Hi,

The Epson printer connected to your system requires drivers to function properly. Drivers link the Operating System and the printer, and issues with the drivers would directly affect the functioning of the printers. If the driver is not able to communicate with the printer, the Epson printer would show an offline message. All users having this problem are advised to check the printer drivers installed on the system using the device manager and if the drivers are found at fault, they would have to be replaced with suitable ones

My canon wireless printer keeps saying offline. I must turn on and off to get it to work.


Hi,

Go to system settings and select the 'Printer' option.

Right-click on the printer and enable the 'Use Printer Online' function.

Cancel all the printing jobs till that moment and redo the process.

Sometimes the 'Printer Offline' message occurs due to a 'Job Stuck' issue.

Check all network connections and functions.

Be sure the network interfaces work properly.

Turn the printer off and on to see whether the device is working properly.

My canon mx340 will not print from my laptop wireless....keeps saying offline


Is the Printer switched on? Do you have enough rights to use the printer wirelessly? Have you printed documents over your wireless connection previously?

How to turn off wireless of samsung color laser printer clx-3185FW


The manual doesn't specifically state this but it appears that if the printer is connected to a wired LAN connection the wireless function will be disabled if the printer is set up in infrastructure mode. When I tried this the 'wireless' light turned off and I wasn't able to find the printer's WiFi SSID using a nearby netbook. If your goal, like mine, was to disable the printer's WiFi from transmitting to reduce extra WiFi noise then this seems to work. One of the wireless troubleshooting tips in the manual states to disconnect the wired connection before attempting to set up a wireless connection so it appears the two can't be used simultaneously. It seems odd that there's no specific "off" setting for wireless though. The printer will provide a WiFi connection when also connected to a wired LAN port if it is set up as part of an ad-hoc wireless network so make sure you set it to 'infrastructure' mode to disable WiFi.

I had the same problem - my printer showed that wireless LAN was enabled & my mac showed the printer but said it was offline. I went to preferences, print & fax, hit the + key to add a printer, added the canon printer again, set that printer as my default, did a print command from Word & that created a queue in the new default printer ... and it printed. Deleted the first Canon printer that was "offline." Oh, and I'm not sure if it made a difference, but before what I just described, I checked for software updates after the printer CD install process & uploaded one update.
