You can share a printer with all computers on your network pretty easily in Windows 7.

-First go to Control Panel and then Devices and printers
-Right click the printer in question and select Printer Properties
-Select the Sharing tab from this new window
-Click the tick box nest to Share this printer
-Click Apply in the bottom right and you are good to go

You can do the same in other operating systems, but the process/name of things may differ slightly.

Hope this helps.

SOURCE: Canon PIXMA MX870 Wireless Printer works with Snow Leopard OS?

The MX870 is compatible with Mac OS X, all versions. I think the CD that comes with the unit will have the Mac Snow Leopard drivers on it, but if not you will be able to download them here.

768 is a bad printhead. It could mean that your ph ribbon is disconnected from the ph, or you actually have too many bad dots to print.

Even if you could temporarily get a workaround for this issue, you will need to replace the printhead if your ribbon isn't disconnected. Contact the company to get a ph sent to you. 1-800-543-6650
