Hi

Its now mandatory that we need have a wireless router to connect to a wireless printer. Few wireless printer can be connected via ADHOC (ie) without a router.

Printers can work with APIPA (Automated Private IP Address)of the wiress PC.Kindly revert back for any clarification.

Thanks

Why won't my canon mx340 usb cable does not fit into d-link router


There is no need to use USB cable to connect MX340 to a wireless router.
If you don't want to use the printer as wireless, plug the printer cable directly into your PC USB port.

Do I need a cord from my computor to the printer to set it up or just the disk?


While this may seem oversimplified, RTM = Read The Manual on setup.


If it's wireless, you don't need a cable to setup the printer with the computer's OS.

If it isn't wireless, then yes, you will need a printer cable to set the printer up with the computer OS.

We are moving and need the MP530 to operate wireless and wish to buy the interface through the router; does a (say) five year old MP530 support a wireless interface?


This model printer has only an USB printer connection.
To connect this printer to a wireless network, you need additional equipment, a print server with an USB pirnter connection and then connect this printer server to a wireless router using a LAN cable.
It may be easier to purchase a new printer with wireless connectivity.

Can I connect my canon mp240 printer by wireless


The Canon Pixma MP240 canot be connected to a router wirelessly. You could buy a USB printer hub which would allow you to connect your printer to a wireless router. Basically, the printer would connect to the hub over USB, the hub would connect to your router over the netowrk cable, and this would allow you to connect to the printer wirelessly.

Hi

I looked at the specs of you printer and it does not support ethernet/ wireless connectivity your best bet would be to connect your printer to your router with usb cable that's if your router supports it else you can buy what they call a wireless print server and connect wirelesly to your router or pc

Whant to print wireless with my Canon MP390 printer


Ho,

No this will not work as the printer has no way to install the dongle into it's operating system.

In order to make it wireless you will need either a wireless access point if the printer already has an ethernet port a wireless USB print server if not.

Look at model # PM111UW on www.startech.com for refernece.

Printing from my laptop


I would need more information to help you with this problem. Do you have the correct and up-to-date Canon drivers installed in your laptop? Is the Canon operating as a wireless unit, or is it connected to the computer via USB cable? If wireless, is the Canon setup to operate wirelessly? If on a USB cable, is the USB port properly configured? Is the USB cable plugged in at both ends? The easiest thing to try is to go to:www.usa.canon.com. You can find downloadable drivers, installation instructions, and other documentation, free. The Canon drivers use an INSTALLATION WIZARD program to guide you through the printer set-up process.

Wireless Printer Setup


For installing a wireless printer on Windows XP, wireless router is an essential device.

Follow the recommended steps mentioned on the installation CD of the router, and set-up a wireless network.

Since several computers or laptops will access the printer, it0 1is recommended to connect the wireless printer to the main computer through the USB port.

To begin the installation process on Windows XP, access the network setting in the Control Panel, and activate the file and printer sharing option in the LAN setting.

This will allow the operating system to recognize the availability of a wireless printer.

Now, click the Start button, go to Devices and Printers, select Add a Printer option.

Click the second option- Add a network, wireless or Bluetooth printer.

The computer will search for available printer and reflect it on the screen.

Click Finish; and the printer is ready to begin the printing process.
