Thank you. Please try the followings first:Solution #1:- Turn off printer, then disconnect the power cords from both printer and internet modem / router device(s) for about 5 minutes, then re-connect. Then wait a few minutes, then check.Solution #2:- If that does not work, please make sure to connect the printer to your correct Wireless Network name (SSID) and Wireless key / password. These information should be at the back / bottom of your BT Home Hub modem / router device.- On the printer's screen, you would go to the option WLAN -> Wireless LAN setup -> Standard Setup, then select / connect to your correct access point (wireless network name / SSID.) Please click on the website below for full instructions / illustrations:http://www.canon.co.uk/support/consumer_products/pixma_printer_wireless_connection_setup/mg5650_wireless_connection_setup/; there, click on the option Standard Connection Method first, then follow the instructions there.; Once that is successfully, then check printing.If you are stuck at any step please let me know. Thank you.
