Hello - Trying to enable wireless printing for a new printer:
Printer - PIXMA MX922
Uverse Wireless device - 2 Wire 3800HGV-8
Computer - iMac running 10.9.4
The printer finds WPS compatible access point. Next step - "press and hold wps button on wireless access point and then press OK".
The only button on the wireless device except for the power button is a padlock with waves - I'm assuming that is the WPS button. Pressed and held for about 30 seconds. There is no OK button on the wireless device that i can find.
Proceeded with set up and received error message - could not connect/timeout.
What do I need to do? It is important due to space issues that I get the wireless feature working. THANK YOU!! PS - I know others have had this problem but I've been unable to find a workable solution.

On your browser go to http://192.168.1.254/xslt?PAGE=C_2_1
Notice the second item is WPS. It probably says disabled. Change to enabled & save (at bottom of page).
You can press the WPS button on that page - click push button.
You will need the GUI password from the side of the RG. This is not the wireless key.
By actvating the WPS on the RG and the printer simultaneously they communicate & set up the security.
If you cannot do that. Use the wizard on the printer & select your wireless & enter the wireless key.
I have done both. Whichever one works is the easiest.
Good luck Let me know when it works.

I am afraid I cannot do more from here. I suggest you call support at Canon & see if they can help - talk you through it.
I looked at the on-line manula & it is no help. There are videos on how to do things, but not WI-fI.
The WPS method one should work. I do not see the need for method two it seems more complicated than direct connection.
If it is saying the password must be all letters you could change it to that in u-verse. Of course, you have to change your other devices, too. It seems too restrictive. If it is true, that may be whhy the WPS method fails.
You did try it adjacent so that it was sure to detect??

Thank you for your help - I agree it's probably the printer since I cannot get it to work via the manual connection either. I've initiated a conversation with canon.
thanks again and have a great week.

I too purchased a new Canon MG2922 with a 3801HGV routers. I followed all the instructions above (made sure WPS is enabled, installed the printer through USB and verified it is working correctly). I tried pushing the button manually on the router and also tried "push button" option through this site: http://192.168.1.254/. Nothing works. I've contacted Canon and I'm waiting to hear back, but I seriously doubt this is an issue with the printer. It responds exactly according to direction until it gets to the point where the router is supposed to communicate with it. Somehow the router is not responding.
If anyone has any other suggestions I would sure appreciate them!
And if no suggestions for this printer - can someone recommend an affordable wireless printer that they know has successfully connected to this Uverse router? I may have to take this one back. The only reason I bought it was to have one that connects wirelessly.
