Initializing Network Settings (Windows)

 

Solution

 Important

  • Note that initialization erases all network settings on the machine, and printing or scanning operation from a computer over network becomes impossible. To use the machine over network, use the Setup CD-ROM or follow the instructions on the Canon website to perform setup.
     

  1. Start up IJ Network Tool.
     

  2. Select the printer in Printers:.
     

  3. Select Maintenance... in the Settings menu.
    The Maintenance screen is displayed.
     

  4. Click Initialize.



     
  5. When confirmation screen is displayed, click Yes.



     

    The network settings of the printer are initialized.
    Do not turn off the printer during initialization.
    Click OK when initialization is complete.

    Performing initialization when connected over wireless LAN will break the connection, so use the Setup CD-ROM or follow the instructions on the Canon website to perform setup.


 Note

  • You can change the network settings of the printer using IJ Network Tool with USB connection after initializing the LAN settings. To change the network settings using Canon IJ Network Tool, enable wireless LAN in advance.
