Hello! Thank you for your question. I am a licensed network professional with over ten years of experience, and I will be assisting you today.

I'm sorry about the issue. The previous technician has opted out. I'm a new technician; I believe I can fix this issue for you. If you still need help with this, please try the followings:

STEP 1. First, make sure the printer is connected to the same Wi-Fi / wireless network name as with the Chromebook.

- On the printer, press the Setup (wrench/tool) button icon:

[MASTER] Picture_PIXMA MX534 Google Cloud Print Setup button

, then select the Wireless LAN setup option, then pres OK button

, then press the red Stop/Reset button:

[MASTER] Picture_PIXMA Wireless Connection tab 2-3

, then press the OK button

, then select / connect to your Wi-Fi / wireless network name.

If you need, please click on the website below for full instructions / illustrations for how to connect the printer to Wi-Fi / wireless:

, there, click on the option Standard Connection Method, then follow the instructions.

STEP 2. Next, on the printer, please do the following:

  1. Press the[Setup] button
    [MASTER] Picture_PIXMA MX534 Google Cloud Print Setup button

  3. When[Connection Setup]is displayed press[OK].

  9. On the printed authentication page there will be a unique URL website or your printer in the location highlighted below, type / go to this website into the address bar of your web browser on the Chromebook.
