PIXMA Pro-10S Wireless Connection Setup

Some access points (sometimes referred to as routers or hubs) feature an automatic connection button labelled “WPS” which stands for Wi-Fi Protected Setup. 

This allows permitted devices such as your PIXMA Pro-10S to connect to your network without needing to enter a password and it enables a quick and easy method of connecting your devices.  

This method is by far the easiest way of connecting your PIXMA Pro-10S so if your access point has a WPS button please select the ‘WPS Connection Method’ tab below for instructions on connecting using this method. 

If your router does not support WPS we have provided alternative instructions to get your PIXMA Pro-10S connected so please select the 'Standard Connection Method' tab below.


WPS Connection Method

Before we start, there are some conditions that must be met in order to use the WPS push button method:

  • The access point must have a physical WPS push button available. Please check with your device’s user guide for details.
    If the WPS push button is not available please use the instructions on the Standard Connection Method tab.
  • Your network must be using the WPA (Wi-Fi Protected Access) or WPA2 security protocol. Most WPS enabled access points use this protocol

  1. Make sure that the printer is turned on.
  2. Press and hold the [Wi-Fi  [MASTER] Wi-Fi Button] button on the top of the printer until the white power lamp flashes once and then release it.
  3. Make sure that the Wi-Fi button starts to flash blue and then go to your access point and press the [WPS] button within 2 minutes.
    For exact details regarding pressing the WPS button, please refer to the access point manual.

The blue Wi-Fi lamp on the printer will continue flash while searching for, or connecting to the access point. During the setup the white power lamp will also start to flash. When the printer has successfully made a connection to your wireless network, the blue and white lamps will stop flashing and remain lit.

Network settings confirmation

To confirm that your printer is successfully connected to your wireless network, you can print out the network settings of your printer if you wish:

  1. Make sure that your printer is turned on.
  2. Load a sheet of A4 or Letter-sized plain paper.
  3. Press and hold the [Resume/Cancel[MASTER] ResumeCancle] button until the white power lamp flashes 6 times, and then release it. The network information page will be printed. 

When referring to the printout, check that the “Connection” indicates “Active” and that the SSID -Service Set Identifier (or the name of your wireless network) indicates the correct name of your wireless network.


This concludes the WPS setup procedure.

Please now proceed by installing the software to make the most out of your PIXMA Pro-10S.

If you do not have the installation CD that came with your product, please download the manuals and software.

Restoring your PIXMA Pro-10S network settings back to factory default

If you need to reset your network settings back to factory default, for example if you change your access point, you can do so by following these instructions:

Please note that initialisation erases all network settings on the machine, so printing or scanning from a computer over the network will become impossible until the printer is re-configured with new network settings.

  1. Press and hold the [RESUME/CANCEL [MASTER] ResumeCancle] button until the power lamp flashes 15 times.
  2. Release the [RESUME/CANCEL [MASTER] ResumeCancle] button.


The network settings have been reset back to factory default settings.

If this process is still failing after following this guide, please contact us for further assistance.
