I have not been able to print to my Canon mg5220 last

Customer Question
I have not been able...
I have not been able to print to my Canon mg5220 for the last few days. I have a 64-bit windows 7 computer with computer and printer wirelessly connected. This evening I have tried to troubleshoot the problem to no avail. I uninstalled my printer from my computer with the hope that uninstalling and re-installing would work. I now can't figure out how to re-install. When I try to add a printer, my mg5220 is not found. Any suggestions?

Did not work at all. When I went through the driver download and setup, my printer still could not be detected.
Technician: VanMagnus Systems, Engineer replied 2 years ago
Oh, do you have a USB cable? Is so connect the Printer to the PC via the USB Cable...

Customer reply replied 2 years ago
I am searching for a USB cable.
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
I can't find the USB cable that came with the printer. I did plug a two-ended USB cable into the front of the printer and into my computer, but this does not seem to work.
Technician: VanMagnus Systems, Engineer replied 2 years ago
How close is the Printer to the PC???
Ask Your Own Printers Question
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
The PC is a laptop, so it can be as close as needed. Right now it is about 2 feet away.
Technician: VanMagnus Systems, Engineer replied 2 years ago
Ok, reboot the PC and the Printer and try once more...

Customer reply replied 2 years ago
I rebooted and made two more attempts. Same result, still can't detect printer.
Technician: VanMagnus Systems, Engineer replied 2 years ago
OK, we need to get a hold of the USB Cable that came with the Printer... Where in the process does it fail exactly?
Ask Your Own Printers Question
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
I have attached a screen shot of what I see. This is after I download the recommended drivers from the Canon website.
Technician: VanMagnus Systems, Engineer replied 2 years ago
OK, let us look at selecting the Wireless LAN Settings. Or would you like remote assist???

The above is if you want Remote Assist...
Ask Your Own Printers Question
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
I have to call it quits for tonight. I ordered a USB cable, it should arrive later this week.
Technician: VanMagnus Systems, Engineer replied 2 years ago
OK, would you want to try a Remote Assist Session later today???
Ask Your Own Printers Question
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
Possibly. However, I probably won't need my printer again this week, so I may be able to wait until the new cord arrives.
Technician: VanMagnus Systems, Engineer replied 2 years ago
OK, I will await your return....
