    You are going to need to use the “Network ScanGear” software from Canon.

    See the page for the downloads from Canon:


      We are using the Network ScanGear software from Canon. It finds the IR2230 but when we go to Windows Fax and Scan software it cannot detect it. The machine is online but is not being recognized. Can you help?


    If you’re using Network ScanGear software and still unable to detect the scanner correctly then you’ll need to contact Canon. Assuming you have an associated support contract with the device this would be your best option.

    My only other suggestion would be to re-review the manual that came with the device. Unfortunately Canon doesn’t have a copy of the manual available for download so I can’t review it for any steps you may have missed.
