- The Canon TS3100 printer can connect to a wireless network, but to do that, it requires an active internet connection.
- Enabling the WPS feature on your router can help you establish the connection as quickly and easily as possible.
- Using your computer’s DHCP feature can also help you establish the connection if it is not available by default.
Use a different WiFi network
- Check your router’s default SSID and password.
- If the password isn’t changed, try switching the router’s channel.
- Try connecting the printer to a different WiFi channel as well.
Make sure that your printer and router are in the same room
- If you’re sharing your WiFi connection through your router, make sure that router and the printer are in the same room.
- If your router is in a different room, try connecting the printer to your router through a long ethernet cable.
Make sure that other devices are broadcasting their WiFi signal
- Your Canon printer won’t connect to WiFi if it can’t detect any other devices broadcasting a WiFi signal in the vicinity. So, check whether your router is broadcasting a WiFi signal and other devices in your home are broadcasting WiFi signals.
Make sure that your printer is on the same channel as your router
- Most routers are set by default to channel 12 or 13.
- Set your router to the same channel as your printer.
