Customer Question
It cannot be found...

It cannot be found on the network. It used to work.

Technician's Assistant: What's the make/model number of your printer? How old is it?

Canon IP9720

Technician's Assistant: What kind of computer are you printing from (Mac or PC)? What Operating System (OS) are you running?

IP8720 that is

Technician's Assistant: How long has this been an issue? What happened right before this popped up?

I also have the MG6600. I had both working wireless. Then, recently the MG660, which can also scan, stopped being able to see the PC, to send a scanned document to it. So yesterday I was working with the setup disc for the MG6600, trying to get that to work again. I could not get that working. Then today I discover that the IP8700 printer is no longer seen on the network. So, now I was rerunning the setup disc for the IP8700, but can't resolve it's issue either.

Technician's Assistant: Anything else you want the printer expert to know before I connect you?

Also a recent event was that I tried the PC cleanup utility by Avast. I already had their anti-virus software. I don't know if running that cleanup utility could have broken something. That's all I think.
