Where is the WPS button on my canon printer?

The WPS button is not on the printer. This button would be located on your router itself.

When your printer says “Press and hold the WPS Button and then press Ok” it means you have to press the Router’s WPS button not the printer’s WPS button. To do so, unplug the printer and move it close enough to the router to “press and hold” the button on the top of your router while pressing “ok” on the printer.

In case your router has no clear WPS button, try to go through all your printer’s manuals and look online by typing your printer’s model name. You can also perform the standard wireless installation.
