Problem
Possible Cause and Measures
The computer cannot
communicate with the
printer or an access
point between rooms or
floors
Although wireless communication between rooms or floors is possible, the
wireless communication quality may become poor. The wall must be made of a
material that allows radio waves to pass through. If the wall material prevents
communication, set the printer in the same room as the access point.
Cannot set up the
printer
Confirm the following:
• The USB cable is connected to the correct port.
• The printer driver is already installed.
• The printer is turned on. If it is, turn it off and then turn it on again.
• Printing via USB connection is possible.
If you cannot print through USB connection, see “Setting Up the Printer and
the Computer” on page 16 and connect the USB cable properly.
• The firewall feature of a security software may prevent proper setup or
communication over a network.
When setting up the printer for use over a network, disable the firewall of
your security software. Turn it back on when setup is complete.
If you are using Windows XP Service Pack 1 or earlier and you have Internet
Connection Firewall enabled, a dialog box asking you for confirmation to
disable the firewall will appear during setup. Click Yes to disable the firewall.
When setup is complete, the firewall will be re-enabled automatically.
To confirm the version of your Windows XP, see “Confirming the version of
Windows XP” on page 82.
Some network configuration programs will enable a firewall by default.
Check the settings of any such software.
• The printer, the computer, and the access point are on the same network
segment.

Problem
Possible Cause and Measures
How to set a WEP key
Refer to the manual provided with the access point and check the access point
settings.
Confirm that the computer and the access point can communicate with each
other.
Then set up the printer to match the settings of the access point.
When using WEP, the key length, key format, the key to use (out of 1 to 4), and
the authentication method must match among the access point, the printer, and
the computer.
For an access point using the WEP method such as the following, use the
hexadecimal key format for the printer.
Example:
Using 64 bit key length, when the string “canon” is entered, an access point
generates the following codes.
Key 1: C9 42 28 B3 AE
Key 2: 87 C0 FB 05 6B
Key 3: 9A 15 FB F8 F3
Key 4: 62 56 67 58 44
To communicate with such an access point, the key to use must be set to the
same key number as selected in the access point, and its code must be set to
the printer in hexadecimal format.
Normally, select Auto for the authentication method. If you want to specify the
method manually, select Open System or Shared Key according to the setting
of the access point.
When the AirPort Base Station is used as an access point:
• To confirm the password (WEP key), use the AirPort Admin Utility. For details, refer to
its online help.
• Select 64 bit if 40 bit WEP is selected for the key length in the AirPort Base Station.
Cannot connect to the
target access point
Confirm the following;
• The network name / SSID of the target access point and the printer are
identical. For information on how to set up a WEP key, see “How to set a
WEP key” on page 76.
• Infrastructure is selected as the network type.
• If a network key is set to the access point, set the printer to match it.
• If MAC address filtering is set to the access point, register the MAC address
of the printer or disable MAC address filtering.
• The wireless channel to be used may be limited depending on wireless
network devices installed in the computer. Refer to the manual provided with
your computer or your wireless network device.
• Make sure that the channel set to the access point is valid to communicate
with the computer, confirmed above. If not, change the channel set to the
access point.
• When connecting to an AirPort Base Station, use alphanumeric characters
for the name of the network (SSID).
• Make sure that there is no barrier or obstacle between the access point and
the printer.
