I have a BT Homehub 3 with a number of devices successfully connected (MacBook Pro; Apple TV; Sky OnDemand Wireless Connector etc) but I'm having problems reconnecting my Canon MG5450 wireless printer after a power cut.
I have connected the printer to the wireless network and the printer Network Configuration Page shows it connected to the network. However it is not shown on the BT Homehub Manager My Home Network Devices list and cannot be found by my MacBook Pro.
MAC Address: 18:OC:AC:2A:4E:B1
Primary Server: 192.168.1.254
Any help please?

Welcome to this user forum.

In addition, this page should help.
Thanks for your reply. I have previously searched the forums for an answer but none seems to fit my situation. The most common solution seems to be to give the printer a static IP address but this seems to require access to the printer configuration page on the network.
Whilst my printer is connected to the network it is not showing on the BT Homehub Manager devices list and therefore i cannot access it on the network.
Can you not manually configure the address on the printer itself? You certainly can on Epsons and HPs
What is the make and model of the printer? They nearly all come with a setup disk, which allows you to manually configure the settings, when the printer is connected via a USB lead.
You can then disconnect the lead, once the settings have been altered.
Thanks for the replies. I've downloaded the manual but can't see anything in there on how to set a static IP address.
From the manual at
The device may not be able to connect to the network in the following cases:
When the setup is complete, press the HOME button
