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 3 years ago
Oh, do you have a USB cable? Is so connect the Printer to the PC via the USB Cable...
Ask Your Own Printers Question
Customer reply replied 3 years ago
I am searching for a USB cable.
Customer reply replied 3 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 3 years ago
How close is the Printer to the PC???
Ask Your Own Printers Question
Customer reply replied 3 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 3 years ago
Ok, reboot the PC and the Printer and try once more...
Ask Your Own Printers Question
Customer reply replied 3 years ago
I rebooted and made two more attempts. Same result, still can't detect printer.
Technician: VanMagnus Systems, Engineer replied 3 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 3 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 3 years ago
OK, let us look at selecting the Wireless LAN Settings. Or would you like remote assist???
http://www.justanswer.com/remotedesktop/join.aspx?Session=f8a0976c-d80f-4ff2-be5e-3c49bf9a30a5
The above is if you want Remote Assist...
Ask Your Own Printers Question
Customer reply replied 3 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 3 years ago
OK, would you want to try a Remote Assist Session later today???
Ask Your Own Printers Question
Customer reply replied 3 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 3 years ago
OK, I will await your return....
