Question about Canon PIXMA iP5200R InkJet Photo Printer

Wireless and wired connection fails with Toshiba laptop

Hi, I have a Canon iP5200R printer which connects fine to my Toshiba laptop using USB but bizarrely fails to connect using either wired ethernet or wireless. It connects fine using all three interfaces to other computers I've tried. The install procedure runs fine although it does require a reboot due to an outdated file (this doesn't happen on other machines), and the Canon IJ network tool reports it as being present and connected. But the printers folder in windows XP Pro shows it as being offline so I can't print! I have tried reinstalling multiple times, purging the files each time but have had no success. using Canon driver version 1.9 I look forward to reading your advice. thanks.

Do you have a firewall turned on that might be preventing your computer from communicating with the printer properly?

Hi i have the canon mp490 all in one printer and i was just wondering how to i get things to print from my lap top

1) Install the network adapter on the printer, if necessary. Many wireless printers have the adapter pre-installed, but if this isn't the case, turn off and unplug the printer. Then, remove the back cover on the adapter slot and place the adapter into the slot.

2) Plug in and turn on the printer. Then, insert the drivers CD that came with the printer into the CD drive of the computer. If you've misplaced the CD, the drivers can be downloaded from the website of the printer's manufacturer.

3) Configure the network adapter. Once the drivers installation has loaded, select "Using a wireless network" and then select "Next". Usually, there is a User Agreement at this point, to which you will agree and press "Next".

4) Connect the laptop to the printer using a USB cable. Connect one end into the USB port on the back of the printer and the other end to a free USB port on the computer.

5) Finish configuring the network adapter. After connecting the laptop and printer with the USB cable, select "Create or modify the printer's wireless settings" and then click "Next".

6) Connect the printer to a wireless network. The wireless setup utility will automatically open after the adapter has been configured. Find your wireless network in the "Wireless networks found in your area" and select "Next". Then verify this information on the next screen.

7) Connect the laptop to the printer through the wireless network. Now, disconnect the USB cable. Make sure that both the laptop and printer are connected to your network. If they are, you're now set up.

Connected Canon MP610 to Apple Time capsule via USB. My Macbook pro prints wirelessly perfectly, as does my sons Vista Laptop, however my daughters vista laptop and my wifes XP laptop print black fine, but...

Hi richardhaley,
Isee that you are having issues with your Canon MP610 printer.
You mentioned that your printer is connected to an Apple Time capsule via USB and that it works fin on your Macbook and on your sons Vista Laptop but prints the colored shifted to the right on your daughter's Vista and wife's XP Laptop and this is connected via USB.
If I may ask have you tried printing wireless using your daughters Vista Laptop and you wife's XP Laptop to see if the colors are still gonna shifted to the right.
Also you mentioned the drive that the driver you are using is from bonjour but still you have the same problem.
Here is a link where you can download drivers specific for the versions of windows your daughter's Vista and your wife's XP would have, you will need to select exactly the OS operating system for the driver that you need also there is a software for each Operating system as well maybe you can download that as well for both system for you to be able to recalibrate the printer from the 2 machines.
I hope that this will help.
Thank you for choosing Fixya,

Connection to laptop

Most printers are connected to laptops via the USB ports. If the printer is supposed to be wireless, then you may have to connect the laptop via the USB port so you can activate the wireless port.

I have a Toshiba lap top A 105. I have lost my internet

It is possible to disable the wireless connection with the keyboard. Try the combination of Fn and F8 buttons (this is a common Toshiba shortcut) to turn it back on. If that doesn't work, look at your Network Connections (through the Control Panel, assuming a Windows OS, if needed). Check the settings and if it is enabled. In the device manager, check if the wireless adapter has an exclamation point in a yellow triangle. If you have the exclamation point try letting Windows repair the driver. (You may need to access the Toshiba website for the correct driver. Either use a different machine and put the driver on a disc or USB driver or your machine's wired connection.) If that tells you it has no problems, remove the wireless connection (and uninstall the driver) and reboot the computer and it should see new hardware and start reinstalling the driver. Then you can try to establish a new wireless connection.

If the above solutions do not help, it's likely to be a hardware failure. You could get a new wireless adapter (USB or an appropriate card for your laptop add-on card slot), use the wired network (if that has worked), or consider a new machine.

I can't see my Canon iP5200R in windows 7 as a wireless printer... I can only use it with USB the conection

There may not be a solution for this as yet because Windows 7 has not been released to the public yet.

The latest release was the RTM which was issued to manufacturers to bring their drivers up to date with it.

Canon mp620 not connecting to my wifi laptop

This could happen if the port that you are using is not the right one.

When you are using a printer wireless, you need to use the Standard TCP/IP port, to setup a printer port, do the following

Right click on printer icon, select properties
Click on Add port, select new port
Enter the IP address of the printer, this can be obtained by printing the settings page from the printer.

Note: please setup a static IP for your printer, else everytime you restart you may endup with a new IP

Let me know if this works,

Is the Canon Pixma ip 1600 wireless? If so...

The ip1600 does not have any network connectors, wired or wireless. You need to connect the printer using the USB cable.

Trying to scan photos from my laptop wireless

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.
