Frustrating network connectivity issues.
I've worked in IT for over 20 years and deal with network issues for all devices including printers. This MG5422 model has been nothing but a headache. I've reinstalled drivers multiple times. I've reset my wireless router and reconfigured it 3 times. Eventually it will work and I am able to print a test page from both a laptop and a desktop PC. A day or two later when I try to print, it will say it's offline and the whole headache starts all over again. I've called customer support and they've walked me through most of the steps that I did, but the problem comes back. There is either a firmware issue, or Canon's proprietary software is flawed. I have used Canon products (scanners, printers, and cameras) in the past and they've been good, but this printer has left a VERY bad impression. I have found other reviews and blogs with the exact same symptoms online, and users have no resolution. I've had the printer for 5 months and will look to get this returned for a refund. Buyer beware.

Sucks up ink in no time!
1) This printer is to costly to use because of the way it uses up Printer Ink! I found myself constantly purchasing expensive Ink Cartridges and I don't print enough to warrant such Ink usage! The Ink Cartridges are to expensive!
2) I also do not like the separate paper carriers!
3) It operates very slowly before printing takes several minutes!
