    How to connect Canon MG3520 printer when "Not Detected"?


    Hi guys, I hope someone can help me an my daughter with this. She's off to college now and she's asked me to setup her Canon MG 3520 printer (wireless). I thought it would take me 2 minutes thanks to the WPS button I thought there would be on their home modem/router but there isnt any. Its actually the ISP's modem and doesnt have a WPS button. And when I try to detect it manually...no dice. Only way I've been able to get it working is connected with a USB cable but its not convenient as she keeps the printer at a fair distance from her desk.

    Can anyone please provide assistance>? Step-by-step walkthru on how to get Windows 10 to "see" her printer when trying to add a network printer? If her laptop is able to connect to her network for internet, then shouldnt it see the printer? I should note that her laptop is connecting at the 5Ghz band, if that makes any difference.

    Are you runing W10-pro or W10-home?
    I found that W10-home offers you a more relaxed and automaticly correct sharing of devices and folders in a home network.
    In my LAN using cable and router I did it by going to Settings->Network and Internet->Ethernet->
    Advanced sharing options-> allowing all for home network
    Network centre ->private (home) network
    Homegroup (important)->selecting at least Printers and Devices to share (pictures down to documents are media and can be ignored)
    But I have to say the W10-home is more relaxed in sharing than W10-pro (at least in my home network).

    Do you have the install CD/DVD for the printer? If not download the full driver then run it. If yes run the installer from the CD/DVD.

    Do not hook up the printer at all.
    Run the install program. At some point it will (or should) ask you how you want to setup the printer, Wireless or USB.
    Choose Wireless and follow instructions.
