    The IP address will be set to the one you specified.

     If you change the IP address to something different from what is shown on the screen displayed in step 13, your mobile device will indicate that it can't communicate with the printer. You'll need to either access the Remote UI again through Canon PRINT as shown in steps 1-4, or you'll need to enter the new IP address you specified into the web browser you're using. You may need to re-enter the printer's password.

     If your printer has a static IP address and you want it to automatically obtain an IP address from your wireless router, select Auto setup in step 12. However, if you do this, the printer will most likely obtain a new IP address from the router. You'll need to access the Remote UI again through Canon PRINT as shown in steps 1-4.
