Basic Network Settings

Solution

Setting Up the Network Environment

When connecting the machine to a wired or wireless local area network (LAN), you need to set an IP address unique to the selected network. Select "wired" or "wireless" depending on your communication environment and networking devices. For specific IP address settings, contact your Internet service provider or Network Administrator.
IMPORTANT
  • If the machine is connected to an unsecured network, your personal information might be leaked to a third party.
NOTE
  • The machine cannot connect to both wired and wireless LANs at the same time.
  • The machine does not come with a LAN cable or router. Have them ready as necessary.
  • For more information about your networking devices, see the instruction manuals for the devices or contact your manufacturer.

Before You Start
Follow these steps to connect the machine to a network.

1. Check your computer settings.
  • Make sure that the computer is correctly connected to the network. For more information, see the instruction manuals for the devices you are using, or contact the device manufacturers.
  • Make sure that the network settings have been completed on the computer. If the network has not been set up properly, you will not be able to use the machine on the network, even if you perform the rest of the procedure below.
  • Depending on the network, you may need to change settings for the communication method or the Ethernet type. For more information, contact your Internet service provider or Network Administrator.
  • To check the MAC address of the machine. For details, see the "User's Guide" from the Canon website (canon.com/oip-manual).
  • To connect to an IEEE 802.1X network, see the "User's Guide" from the Canon website (canon.com/oip-manual).

2. Select wired or wireless LAN.

3. Connect to a wired or wireless LAN.
  • Proceed to the section that corresponds to the setting you selected in step 2.

4. Set the IP address as necessary.
  • At the time of purchase, the machine is set to automatically acquire an IP address. Change this setting if you want to use a specific IP address.

Selecting Wired LAN or Wireless LAN

After you decide on wired or wireless LAN to connect the machine to the computer, select wired LAN or wireless LAN using the operation panel. Note that if you change the setting from <Wired LAN> to <Wireless LAN> or vice versa, you will need to uninstall the drivers installed on your computer and then reinstall them. For more information, see the manuals for the relevant drivers on the online manual website.

1. Select <Menu> in the Home screen.

2. Select <Preferences> <Network>.
  • If the login screen appears, enter the correct ID and PIN. For details, see the "User's Guide" from the Canon website (canon.com/oip-manual).

3. Select <Select Wired/Wireless LAN>.

4. Select <Wired LAN> or <Wireless LAN>.

Connecting to a Wired LAN

Connect the machine to a computer via a router. Use a LAN cable to connect the machine to the router.

1. Connect a LAN cable.
  • Connect the machine to a router by using a LAN cable.
  • Push the connector in until it clicks into place.

2. Wait for several minutes.
The IP address is set automatically.
- You can set the IP address manually.

Connecting to a Wireless LAN

Wireless routers (or access points) connect the machine to a computer via radio waves. If your wireless router is equipped with Wi-Fi Protected Setup (WPS), configuring your network is automatic and easy. If your networking devices do not support automatic configuration, or if you want to specify authentication and encryption settings in detail, you need to manually set up the connection. Make sure that your computer is correctly connected to the network.
IMPORTANT
Risk of information leak
  • Use wireless LAN connection at your own discretion and at your own risk. If the machine is connected to an unsecured network, your personal information might be leaked to a third party because radio waves used in wireless communication can go anywhere nearby, even beyond walls.
Wireless LAN security
  • The wireless LAN function of this machine supports WEP, WPA-PSK, and WPA2-PSK. For the wireless security compatibility of your wireless router, see the instruction manuals for your networking devices or contact your manufacturer.
NOTE
Required devices for wireless LAN connection
  • The machine does not come with a wireless router. Have the router ready as necessary.

Setting Up Connection Using WPS
When using WPS, two modes are available: push button mode and PIN code mode.

Push Button Mode
Find the WPS mark shown below on the package of your wireless router. Also make sure that there is a WPS button on your networking device.

PIN Code Mode
Some WPS routers do not support the push button mode. If WPS PIN code mode is mentioned on the package or in the instruction manuals of your networking device, set up the connection by entering the PIN code.
NOTE
  • If the wireless router is set to use WEP authentication, you may not be able to set up connection using WPS.

Manually Setting Up Connection
When manually setting up a wireless connection, you can either select a wireless router or manually enter the required information. Regardless of the method, make sure that you have the required setup information, including the SSID and network key. Checking the Access Point Name or Network Key

Selecting a Wireless Router
Select this setup option if you need to manually set up the connection but want to complete the setup as easily as possible.

Manually Entering the Setup Information
If you want to specify security settings in detail, such as authentication and encryption settings, manually enter the SSID and network key to set up the connection.

Viewing Network Settings

NOTE
  • The IP address is not correctly configured if it is displayed as "0.0.0.0".
  • Connecting the machine to a switching hub or bridge may result in a connection failure even when the IP address is correctly configured. This problem can be solved by setting a certain interval before the machine starts communicating. For details, see the "User's Guide" from the Canon website (canon.com/oip-manual).
  • You can print a list of the current network settings. Printing Reports and Lists

Testing the Network Connection

1. Select <Menu> in the Home screen.

2. Select <Preferences> <Network>.
  • If the login screen appears, enter the correct ID and PIN. For details, see the "User's Guide" from the Canon website (canon.com/oip-manual).

3. Select <TCP/IP Settings> <IPv4 Settings> <PING Command>.

4. Enter the IPv4 address of another device on the network, and select <Apply>.
