WI-FI ISSUE WITH CANON POWERSHOT ELPH 330

I have successfully added my SSID and Wireless Key (16 letters) to my Wi-Fi settings on my new Canon Powershot ELPH 330.
The camera finds my SSID Name and MY Computer ok. However, it try's to connect for a few minutes and fails. I have a wireless printer and netbook that both were successfully connecting using wireless.
The new Canon Elph just keeps searching for my Computer but never successfully connects.
Has anyone else had this problem with this new camera?
Very frustrating to know that this camera is wi-fi but can't connect to use any of the wi-fi options on the camera.
Please Help!
:confused:


I forgot to mention that I called Canon Tech Support and they tried to help me for over 1 hour and cannot understand why the wi-fi is not successful.

Although your camera can "see" the network, is your router's firewall set to accept the camera?

Is the camera's Wi-Fi using 802.11a, b, g, and/or n? Whichever it uses, does your router support the same protocol? I asked this as I have some 802.11g stuff that, in order to use on my network, I need to "open that up" on my Netgear router, using the router access application.

Thank you very much Overland1 for your reply to my camera issue.
I called Verizon, my service provider and they told me that my Verizon Router supports WPA Encryption
I will call Canon Tech Support tomorrow and find out if my Canon Powershot ELPH 330 accepts WPA encryption.
Will let you know if I am successful.
I hope that this problem will be resolved soon.

First, try setting up an ad-hoc network directly between your PC and your camera, with no encryption. Then, while your router may support encryption, are you actually using it in your home network (many, foolishly, don't). And have you read this documentexternal link Canon has published for WiFi connectivity?
