I bought a Canon Pixma MG3100 series Wireless Printer+Scanner in around June/July this year. I had been using it since then and everything was great... then I had to change my Wireless Router settings, so had to change settings for this too...
But now it doesn't print anything at all! I connected it to my PC via USB, and changed the settings to static IP address: 10.0.0.22 ... and after that it was active for a while, then again it went inactive. So I opened up my router and added a "reserved ip" to the DHCP settings : 10.0.0.22 (it was already showing a device connected at that IP, but wasn't displaying it's name.) I used the printer's mac address (for reserving the ip) beside the .22 ip address on the router's page. So after this I connected the printer again via usb and set the network settings to "Obtain IP address automatically" and closed.
Now the printer is inactive, on the PC, but active via USB. Also, when I open the url "10.0.0.22" it opens the Printers Network Configuration page... ie, my browser can directly connect to the PC via wifi/lan! But STILL the device is showing inactive for printing.
So I needed to ask how to reset the printer to it's factory settings so that I could re-install the printer on my PC. If not, how to change it's settings to be able to print on home wifi network?
Thanks for any help.
