Setting up Wireless Pixma MP620 to my wireless XP Toshiba Laptop

How to connect my wirless laptop to the printer? Can't find the Network Key, when I follow the setup Wizard. I use my laptop wireless to the Internet now. Can I set up a separate wireless connection to the printer?

    We have the manuals, we've been following all the instructions. Obviously we are missing something, or a sequence.

    We already use our laptop wireless, with our service provider and the Linksys setup. We have tried turning off that internet service, and went through the set up with it disconnected. The MP620 still does not recognize or respond to the procedure we follow with the manual instructions, even the trouble shooting instructions.

    The printer does work using the USB cable. We know it does print. Our problem is getting it to work wireless.

    We have tried for hours and hours, we've uninstalled and restarted the printer numerous times and still we get this message everytime "A new port cannot be created" We have no idea what is wrong, we cannot connect the MP620 using the Ethernet cable. Thanks for trying, we'll try to get in touch with Canon.

    Thank you very much for trying, we have finally solved the problem. Canon help telephoned and after leading us through every step. Solution was to wait 15 to 20 seconds after making cable connections, before clicking next. This is not in the manual or trouble shooting. Canon has documented the problem, I think we are not the only one to encounter this. I've now tested my laptop wirelessly and it printed fine, I could scan and copy too, without a wired connection.

    I have the same probelm... do I need to setup the printer with the USB or network cable prior to following the wireless setup? I'm having a hard time finding the port & connecting to the access point/router.

  • afonsov Dec 14, 2008

    It also happens to me. Already uninstalled all the printer software and installed from the beginning following the instructions in the manual, waited more than 20 seconds after making cable connections, before clicking next. Does anyone know where to find more accurate documentation on how to solve this? Thanks.

    I am trying to set up MP620 with a wireless router. My wireless router is detected, but when I go to connect it fails and hence am not able to set up the printer.

    I have exactly the same problem and have wasted hours trying different methods, won't connect wirelessly to my HP laptop, love some advice hey.

  • awood36 Jan 03, 2009

    I am having the same issue with the wireless connection. Read all instructions including Canon online troubleshooting. WPA key, TKIP, network setting etc.matches, etc-double checked in my network as well as online with D-Link. Did all the steps mentioned by others, uninstalled software, rebooted, waited fews seconds etc, even turned off firewall during installation although firewall is setup with permission allowed. No luck with wireless connection. Canon IT support is closed on the weekends so can't turned to them for assistance at the moment. My laptop had picked up wireless printers in the past but no other printers are currently installed in my laptop at the moment. I checked that also.

    I have a similar problem. I am trying to connect up a Canon MP620 wirelessly. My access point is a BT Home Hub. I have tried setting up from Mac OS 10.3.9 and from Windows XP SP3. Software installs ok on either, data is successfully transfered to the printer via USB cable - printer appears to be connected on Home Hub 'status' page, the printer IP can be 'pinged' from either Mac or PC, but at no time have I been able to coax the printer to be visible wirelessly to either the Mac or the PC. I have turned off the firewall on the PC to test.

    I'm now thinking of returning the equipment to supplier as 'unfit for purpose' as the whole point was to use it wirelessly. I've made more than reasonable efforts with their software, and I consider myself reasonably 'savvy' with setting up wireless devices.

    Same problem as everyone else. Does anyone know the solution?

  • Anonymous Feb 12, 2009

    Same problem here. The printer MP620 is only working fine with the USB cable. The install-procedure gives during installation of the wireless connection error-messages. The wireless connection is OK, but the card-reader wil not be installed while installing the wireless connection. After a 'first' install the error message "New port could not be created" is given. In Explorer the card reader now is visible, but the installation-procedure wil not be finished. A second install results in the message "The Card Slot is already mapped as Network Drive to this computer". A memory-card is sometimes visable as drive N; the canon_memory (drive Z) is not accesible. I have to remove the cardreader in the configuration menu and have to disconnect it in Explorer to get the first error message, otherwise I get the second error message. Help!

    My sticking point here is the Encryption Key. What is it?
    I have to enter it before the computer and printer can
    finish connecting.

Wireless networks not found

Sometimes Satellites get a little flaky when on battery power. If you haven't already, plug in the power cord with the notebook cold - meaning off for about a minute. Boot the notebook and try to do the setup with the power connected. If that solves it, it should work fine when you switch to battery power. If it doesn't, repost with your results.

Hi there, the only reason it doesn't work it's because the wireless key is not correct. It usually shows limited connectivity when the wireless key is not correct. Even just a letter upper or lower case will cause the problem. Since you are connected with the other computer go under the Router settings and double check the wireless key. Check what kind of encryption the router is using, make sure your wireless adapter can support it.

Go to the control panel. Open wireless connection wizard and configure it by giving the proxy setting of the router. There must be a DNS server to get you connected with the Domain.
First your os xp or vista
if u xp means go to network connection and see that tab, wireless network wizard and click next to open to next to next and click finish. It will appear in network connection windows. But u want to take airtel broad band wireless net key, and u open the tab if u finish ur network wizard tab. And it will open the icon it ask for key, u give it key to continue. It will ready to access the network, so this is the way

Good Luck

Wireless problem

Not all wireless networks can be "seen'. This is because they are not broadcasting the SSID. This is done for security reasons. In order to connect to a wireless network, there are three things that one typically needs: 1) SSID. This is a name for the wireless network. You may not always be able to see this, as it is a common security practice to not broadcast this out. Even if it is not broadcast, you will still be able to connect to it. 2) Encryption type. There are several flavors out there, including the option of none at all. The key here is that this setting must be EXACLTLY the same on both the laptop and accesspoint for proper communications. 3) Encryption key. Again, this must be EXACTLY the same on both ends. Finally, make sure you are in range. Depending on the wireless technology in use, the effective range may not be more than a 100 feet. While initially configuring wireless, it is best to be as close as possible to the access point, and then slowly move away to find the outward bounds of the access point's communication range.
