This is just a wild guess, but I've had a similar problem with a Brother All-in-one printer/fax/scanner. I can print just fine to it wirelessly, but to scan I need to connect my laptop to the Brother device using a USB cable.

I have an existing phone wall connection cable.Can i use this same wall connection for the fax? Cannon mx340 how do i scan documents?


Yes you should be able to use the same socket.

Normaly the printer software includes easy to use scanning software.
Normaly a desktop icon is placed on the desktop from where you can open the software, if not check under your programs from the start button.

If you attach this printer to a desktop computer with a network card and you have a wireless router.
Then you set up the printer as a shared printer and connect the desktop to the wireless router with a LAN cable. To send a print from your laptop then the printer and desktop computer need to be switched on.
If you let me know what equipment you have got then I can advise you the most cost effective way for you to set up a network printer.

Can i connect my canon pixma mp780 using wireless feature?


The specifications for this printer reveals it has no network capabilities at all.
You can connect this printer to a computer and set it up as a shared printer and if you have a wireless router connected to this computer and printer then you can print from a laptop using a wireless connection.

Wondering what I need to print wirelessly from laptop with this printer


If you printer hasn't a built-in wireless connection and if you haven't a wireless router then -
You need a wireless router plus print server. Connect this print server to the wireless router with a LAN cable. Then the printer is then connected to the print server's printer port.
The laptop's wireless card is then configured with the router's wireless settings.
The laptop is then installed with the printer driver and the printer port needs to be changed/configured with the print server's IP address.
ALTERNATELY
If the printer is connected to a desktop computer on your home LAN and it is also connected to your wireless router. Then you can set this printer as A Shared Printer on your desktop computer, but this desktop computer and the printer has to be powered up for the laptop to print to the printer.
For instruction on setting up a shares network printer, please click on this link and follow my instructions :-

I've had a similar problem trying to print to a printer that was not on my laptop but connected to the network through a desktop that was connected to the WiFi router and a cable modem.

If you can see the printer, maybe the driver is already installed.
In my experience, I had to log on as the administrator to print to the printer but I have windows 7 on all 4 of my computers.

I don't have xp anymore.

Maybe xp is the problem.

I can no longer print wirelessly on my Canon PIXMA MP780 with my PC's


Hello. If I am not mistaken, I believe that you have an issue with your computer driver. I completely understand, and strongly agree that Mac's are far superior than PC's. In that case, I would like to help you with the PC issue. One problem you might have is that your driver may have not been installed properly. Go ahead and finish that.
For more help, don't be afraid to contact Cannon Hot-Line Telephone Support!
