Check your on-line documentation that came with the printer. It should have installed itself when you dowloaded the drivers and other applications form the CDROM that was included. I am also working though the same issue with the BU-30. I have a Dell with XP, but do not have any Bluetooth options in the Printer set up in the control Panel. I beleive there may be some type of software you can add to XP, but I'm not sure. - Good luck

I have installed the adapter internally in the printer but my ipad doesn,t detect it what else do I need to do


Make sure the blue tooth adapter is set to "discoverable". Then open your blue tooth app and search for connections. You should be able to find it. After two minutes, if it does not find it, turn printer off, restart ipad. Try again. good luck

Found this on the Newegg website. Hope this helps.
If you want to go Bluetooth wireless (and you should) be aware that you must use the Toshibia Bluetooth "Stack" driver and not the Microsoft Bluetooth Stack driver on Window's PC's. I found this out by going to Canon's website and downloading the "full" online manual. It has a very nice section on setting up Bluetooth. Anyway, no problem as newegg has a very nice "Zoom" brand Bluetooth PC-Card for laptops that uses the Toshiba Drivers. Just pop in the CD that comes with the PC-Card and follow directions. You can go to Toshiba's website and download latest "stack" driver later. It's a little tricky to get the upload to "take" but it will work. Newegg should offer the PC-Card as an optional bundle (with the printer)like they do the Canon printer's Bluetooth adapter. This way you get everything you need and know that they all work together. I wish newegg sold the battery too.

How do I set up a wireless printer. I am on a wireless network now. How do I make my printer wireless??


The HP Officejet 7310 has an optional bluetooth wireless adapter. If you purchased the option, you will need bluetooth connectivity at your computer end. Alternatively, you could purchase a third party wireless adapter.
Other than that, you will need to connect your printer to your router/wireless network then all computers will be able to print wirelessly to it through the router.
Hope this helps.

My Macbook is bluetooth capable. My PIXM MP480 seems to be bluetooth equipped. Can't get the two to communicate. Do I need some other piece of hardware to make it work?


Hi,

The printer Canon PIXM MP480 is bluetooth enabled ( which is optional ) but it is not fully functional without a Bluetooth unit BU-30 ( bluetooth dongle )

The printer has Bluetooth enabled adapter which means you will need a bluetooth dongle to make it work with your Macbook. You will have to connect the Canon Bluetooth unit BU-30 to the printer and enable to bluetooth function on the printer to be detected by your macbook.

You will be able to purchase the Canon Bluetooth unit BU-30 at any nearest stores ( bestbuy, walmart, costco etc ) for a price of $30 to $50 Approx. depending on the offers you will avail from different merchants/stores.

Hope this answer was helpful.

How do i turn my blutooth on, on my Acer Aspire 5332?


Install the provided Bluetooth wireless adapter. Purchase and install a commercially available USB-to-Bluetooth wireless adapter. Enable your computer's built-in Bluetooth wireless support. This should then be able to connect to anything that has Bluetooth support.
Hope this helped. Good Luck!

RE: Canon Bu-20 bluetooth printer adaptor. I just purchased one and there are NO instructions in the package. Do you know of an instruction page/manual?


With my MX850 printer the bluetooth setup instructions were only in the on-screen printer manual, not with the bluetooth adapter, and not with the printer documentation.

In my case it didn't help as Windows is not discovering the bluetooth adapter for some reason.

Linksys buletooth wireless adapter


The bluetooth adapter will only work with bluetooth devices such as cell phones.  Unless you D Link router has a bluetooth transmitter on it but more than likely it has a wireless G transmitter on it.
Does your computer have a wireless G transmitter?
