    wireless connection from camera; network detected cannot join


    I have a new Canon camera that has the possibility of a wireless connection to download photographs. I have followed the (Canon) instructions and the camera detects my home network. When joining this network, I see the two PCs on the network. I choose one to join and then it says it is connecting (with a twiddling thumbs logo) but then says it cannot connect.

    I find this frustrating as the network is clearly accessed for me to be able to see my two computers. I have, by the way, installed the (Canon) software to 'prepare the computer' for the connection.

    I would appreciate any ides as to what I am missing, having tried both Device Manager and the Network and Sharing Centre to solve this problem!

    My computer cannot detect printer after using wireless extender

    As the modem is far, some part of my home experience weak wireless network. To tackle this issue, I've installed wireless extender (TP-Link).

    However, after using the wireless extender, my computer could no longer detect my printer (Brother DCP-J562DW) even though my printer is connected to my network.

    Reinstalling does not work as my computer still cannot detect the printer through my wireless network during installation.

    Please help! Thanks!

    Update:

    Wireless Extender Model: TP-LINK RE355

    Initially my extender network ID is the same as host ID.

    I've realised that the computers that are connected to the extender, could not detect the printer (which is connected to the router).

    To confirm my guess, I've renamed the wireless extender network into a different ID and I was right. Computers that are connected to extender cannot detect the printer, but when connected to router they can detect printer.

    This may sound like a noob question, but how come I detect the printer (which is on router network) through extender network?

    Please help! Thank you!

    Homegroup no longer detected

    Here is my story. My computer worked with Windows 7 with HomeGroup. After upgrading to windows 10, home group stopped working and "join" option showed up. When I tried joining, it showed no homegroup was detected. Of cause, I entered the home group "password"
    I used before and verified it was correct. After several attempts, the "join" option disappeared and a "create" option became available which had not been there before. So I created a new home group. A new password was automatically created. Note that this
    computer was connected to the network with wire. After that, I went to a laptop which is wireless connected to the network . Tried joining and failed just like the first computer. Then I connected the cable to the laptop and tried joining the homegroup again.
    This time, it joined automatically and even didn't ask for password. I was happy with it. However, when I unpluged the wire connection and switched to wireless, the computer in the homegroup disappeared. It seems that wired and wireless are on different networks
    even though they are connected to the same router. Any idea?

    wireless connection from camera; network detected cannot join

    In most cases Canon sets up a hotspot and you then connect to it to download photos or to remote control the camera

    Is that what the Canon software does? When I installed it, a message indicated that it was preparing the computer to recognise the camera. Does this make it a hotspot? What is confusing me is that I can see that the camera is locating items on my network but will not 'find' them when selected.

    Is there something in W10 that I should be doing, I wonder.

    Thanks for your help.
