Who's your internet service provider?

Can you please check at the back/bottom of your Internet modem/router device model of it? (Usually the modem/router device was given to you by your internet service provider.)

Is your MacBook Pro connected to the modem/router device with a cable? Or is it wireless?

Please reply at the box below. Thank you.

I can't see why you are stalling with some useful information? I haven't had one piece of information worth anything at all!!! Surely as an expertyou have some form of acess to a manual or photograph of the Canon PX 720 series that indicates what theVPS button looks like and where it is located on the printer. My computer is a acBook Pro (OSX).

I look forward to hearing from you - after waiting a whole dayfor precious little help. I am beginning to think that Just answers might be OK and other empty heads, but it seems moe of a worthless scam

as far as I am concerned!;

I'm sorry. I'm not sure why you have to wait the whole day ; please check your emails ; please reply back whenever you see my reply.

The issue is that the WPS button is not on the printer. The WPS button, if there is one, is only on your modem/router device. That's why I'm asking Internet modem/router device.

Do you see a WPS button on your modem/router device (not on your printer)?

Or when the printer ask to press the WPS button, can you press the red Stop/Reset button on the printer, and continue?

Please let me know. Don't worry, we guarantee our service. Please reply at the box below on this web page only. Thank you.
