You may need to reset your router and let it run through its "connecting cycle" (about a minute or so) then using your printer go throu the settings and do another device search. You will also need to do the same on your computer so the printer and computer pair-up. Also try going to the printers brand web page and look up the software or drivers for that specific model.

All you should need to do is connect the HP printer to your wireless router via Ethernet cable (which should be included with the printer). Follow the instructions that came with your printer to set it up on your computer.

Hi,

If your router does not has WPS button, there is another way to Enable it from Router configuration under wireless settings
If you enable the WPS option from Router, you will have to press the WPS option from printer for automatic setup of printer on wireless network.
If you are not able to locate it then the WPS on your printer is of no use ( to connect to router )
Instead, I believe you have wireless router and you want to setup the printer wireless on network.

This is touchsmart printer and it has a setup button
Press SETUP option
Press WIRELESS option
Check for Wireless Setup Wizard
If it has Wireless setup wizard, select it and continue to search for wireless router and enter your network key if your router is secured with a key.
Run the software disk on pc and choose wireless connection and continue with the rest of the installation screen to complete.

If this option is not available, you will have to setup the printer thru usb cable and make it wireless

Run the disk on your pc
Choose Network Wireless connection
It will prompt you to connect thru USB
follow the instructions and it will ask you to disconnect
Continue with the remaining instructions.

What does WPS button stands for.


WPS=WiFi Protected Setup. This is typically used to connect a Wireless Router to a Wireless Repeater. Both must be WPS capable and using WPS is similar to pairing two Bluetooth devices. One device transmits WPS and another listens (after you initiate a WPS sync). You have to enter a WPS PIN and the devices should connect.

Can i use wps button to connect my printer to my network?


According to the Canon website, yes, the 495 is wireless capable. I have a Pixma MG5300 and had no trouble at all connecting to my network with WPS. The installation instructions were a bit unclear but I just pushed the WPS button on my router right after going through the steps to make the wireless indicator on the control panel blink. Works great.

Where is the was button


I'm guessing you mean the WPS button - "Wireless Protected Setup" - As far as I can see from the User Guide this router doesn't have an actual WPS Button - You need to log onto its admin web interface and browse to the WPS setup page - Press the WPS button on your client device (laptop, printer, etc) then Click the WPS button in the router's web interface and let them talk to each other to establish a secure connection - The WPS light on the Front Panel should then light up when connected - You can find a user guide at the following url:

I am having trouble downloading My wireless Printer-CanonPixmaMX892 to my laptop!


Yes. It is a feature on the router and wireless enabled device. You can't use wireless without a router. I got a Belkin n750, and it has WPS. Basically, you activate WPS on device and push the WPS button on router, and wait a minute for it to configure.

Not to sell the Belkin, it one the easiest and user friendly routers i've seen. That is solely based on answering these questions. GL

Hi Robert_fl657,

For any printer to run on the network (wired or wiireless), aside from just a router, you will need a print server. Now, since this printer has wireless capabilities, i am going to assume that you might have a wireless prinet server built in (WPS). If your wireless router does not have that function, i suggest you buy a wireless print server to accomodate the printer that you would want to hook up.

Possible Solution 1: Sync wireless printer with WPS button on wireless router

1. Try and locate the WPS button (if any) on the wireless router.
2. Once located, go to the network options on the wireless printer and select set up by WPS.
3. Once you have selected that option, the printer should be in a seeking mode. Select and hold the WPS Button down on the wireless router.
4. If all goes well, you should have established connectivity with the wireless router.

I hope the above information helped. Please do let me know if there are other queires regarding this. Also, pls remeber to vote for me if you find this solution useful. Thank you.

Regards,
