Learn about the various methods you can use to reconnect your PIXMA PRO-100 to your wireless network.


If your printer has lost its connection to your wireless network due to a change in the network's settings (network name or password change), you can reconnect it by using one of several methods.


 If your router has a WPS Push button on it, you can use that to reconnect your printer to your wireless network without having to uninstall and reinstall any software.


Caution IMPORTANT: If you use one of the other methods noted in this article to reconnect the printer to your wireless network, you will NOT need to uninstall and reinstall the drivers.

If you're using a Windows PC, you'll need to uninstall the drivers and reinstall them. To uninstall:

  1. Hold down the Windows Window icon key and type R. In the Run box, type control panel and select OK.

    Run dialog box with "control panel" typed into the Open: field

  2. For Windows XP, select Add or Remove Programs. For other versions of Windows (Vista / 7 / 8 / 8.1 / 10), select Programs and Features.

  3. Select Canon PRO-100 series Printer Driver from the list. Then, select Uninstall.

  4. If a dialog appears asking which printer to uninstall, select the appropriate printer.

  5. Depending on your operating system, you may need to log in with an administrator account or confirm that you want the software to make changes to your computer.

  6. Select Execute. When the confirmation message appears, select Yes. When all files are deleted, select Complete. The deletion of the printer driver is complete.

    Caution IMPORTANT: The printer driver and the XPS printer driver will be deleted when you uninstall the printer driver.

After the drivers have been deleted, download and install the printer driver from the Canon USA website.

Caution IMPORTANT: You will need a USB cable to set up the wireless connection.


If you have a USB cable, you can use the IJ Network Tool to reconnect the printer to your network.
