I am trying to make a WiFi connection with my Canon printer but I am facing some problem. After setting the connection, I see “Printer can’t find the network” error message. I have also double checked printer settings but everything is OK. Also, there is no mismatch with wireless network configuration. Please suggest me some tips so that I can get wifi on my printer without facing any problem. I have also tried to troubleshoot via Canon tool but nothing worked.
