    Help!! Our internet company changed our wireless internet from 5 to 5G and now my printer will not work. I can't get it to hook up to my iPhone or my iPad. Can someone help me please? Give me instructions on how to hook it up. I've tried the instructions on the internet and the ones that came with the little booklet that came with the printer. I'm sure it's something little that I'm missing. I'm not computer savvy so you'll have to go slow lol. Thank you!!

    I just bought a new Canon Pixma top model, which can not be connected to the Wi-Fi network in some simple steps. Followed the instructions with completely unethical steps. Finally, It had to ping its network to find its IP address. Should know about its setup before purchasing it.
