You need to network the printer via its ethernet port and you need an email server in that network to route the fax.

I got it to work at home using hmail (a free windows mail server).

Fax

I cant find the sending guide which I have in print, you will need that as the most important piece, but basically if you know basic email account setup, you should be able to go through data registration button on main panel and under system settings-> network settings I believe enter SMTP IP address of your internal email server. Another avenue for this would be to ask your ISP if they relay email for static IP subscribers. Qwest does and you might be able to point the fax directly to the relay but I haven't tested this (in lieu of the in home hmail server).

Since changing internet provider - wireless broadband, my printer will copy, but will not print from computer or scan. I am picking I need to download new drivers but cannot find Canon MG4160 drivers...


Try using the Preview app on your computer // Also, what happens when you try to print? Before getting too complicated, restart both your computer and printer, and make sure you have the USB cable properly connecting the two. Your printing is not related to changing your internet service provider. Neither is scanning. No drivers are required.

If the scanning operation was working before.
Turn the printer off and then back on, this will reset the printer.
The scanning opeation will then.work.
To use the scanning operation your computer must be turn on and
the printer usb cable must be connected to the computer.

Can we use MF6550 for wireless network?


If you use a wireless USB print server like this . Keep in mind that you may not get all functions such as scanning to work but it will allow for printing for sure. If the scanning works consider it a bonus.

I cannot get my photosmart c5580 to scan I select scan, start can, scan to comuter and get an error says for me to start scanning from computer


What OS do you have? Do you have the full-featured software installed? If you only have the driver that was built into the OS, that is a generic driver and will not read the buttons on the all-in-one for scanning.
If you plugged in the USB cable before installing the full software, you get the generic driver. Uninstall that driver, unplug the USB cable, and install the full software. Check for updates for your software.

If you have a USB hub or print server, try a direct connection. Often these interfere with the bi-directional communication that allows the computer to see the buttons being pressed.

If the full software is installed, check if the image monitor program is loaded and running. That listens for the activity of the buttons and they will not work if the service is stopped.

Software and drivers:

If you can't launch the scan from the computer, then try a new USB cable and a different USB port. As above try a direct connection if you have a USB hub or print server between the computer and the printer.

I hope this helps.

Exact same problem as OP


Canon support was able to help me with this issue.

First, scanning with the MF Toolbox is only supported via USB, not across the network (scanning across the network generally does work but you need another application that supports it). Second, you must make sure that you have switched the device into USB scan mode. Press the Scan button on the device. If the display says "Network scanning" press it again until it says USB Scanning. From then on, scanning works beautifully.

Laserclass 730i scanner driver software


The scanning is based on scanning to email. It isn't really controlled from the computer like a typical scanner is. The settings are all on the panel of the device. They are resolution, Contrast, and Doc Type. From there, you have to configure the machine t send the scanned image to an email address. The email address requires that you have the device setup for email with a network address, smtp server, etc.
