WiFi connection/printing with Cannon MP560

Interesting problem. I can not get my cannon mp560 to work wirelessly. I can get it to connect to my access point. And in its menu gives me the details that it is. My router shows the mac address that it is indeed connected. Here is the kicker, I have setup my router on a subnet of 192.168.2.1 so that it would not interfere with the att uverse gateway they give you and must have (its under the normal 192.168.1.1) When i look at the ip address assigned (from the printer menu itself) it has an ip of 192.168.1.79. So I know its on the wrong sub net, but it says it is connected to the right router......... Im at a lost, I cant get this thing to work.

    Well, just after posting this I found that the printer has a LAN menu and I can set the subnet manually. Was able to get it to 192.168.2.1! All is god now.

SOURCE: HP C4380, Wireless Printing Problem

Do you have other printer drivers installed, if so thre may be a driver conflict. wireless printing requires network connection and also printer drivers. This appears to be a driver issue since the printer shows up on the network. I would try reinstalling the drivers.

SOURCE: Samsung ML 2010 under mac os X 10.5

I found a solution that worked for me by prowling around various Apple discussion forums. The two keys to the solution for me were numbers 3 and 5 below.

1. Opened print/fax preferences
2. Opened Add printer by clicking the +
3. For protocol, select HP jetdirect-socket (not IPP or LDP)
4. Determined the IP address for my Belkin wired print server and typed this into the Address line of printer setup
5. Manually selected the printer driver as ML-2010. It is in the list of drivers but is in the M's, not under the Samsung drivers.
6. This worked for me. I've seen reports from people who had to power cycle their print server and/or printer as well.

SOURCE: printer not receiving information from computer

I guess you mean the c350 is not printing while Windows said the job has been sent? If so, it may have changed IP Address from the time you first install the Printer on Windows. Check the Ports setting of the c350 printer! e.g. d53b002.jpg
Network Pritners should have Static IP address or at least a reserved DHCP IP Address. Logon to your Router, check the MAC Address of the c350 and reserve/assign it a IP Address near the end of the DHCP range. Save the Router configuration and power cycle the c350. Confirm IP Address changed to the reserved IP. 

Then you have to change all the PC's Printer Configuration of the c350's Port to update the reserved/assigned IP. Or remove the c350 from Printers and Faxes, then run the printer setup software again.

Ignore the instructions that come with the printer, choose Open System, then choose WEP, enter, and it hooks up. Thanks to the above posters for this solution.

SOURCE: Brother printer and Neygear router wireless connection bad.

Had the same issue. Change the router wireless security settings from TKIP to AES algorithms. This did the trick for me.

I tried all the solutions I found including the one recommended by Cannon, replace all ink cartridges. Nice parting shot! I stopped short of replacing the print head. The best solution I found is buy a new printer. Make sure it is from a different manufacturer.

Cannon mp560 photos are printing all a pink colour


it sounds as if one or more of the nozzles of your printhead is dried or blocked. I would advise printing printing a test page like this one to clarify the cause.

Assuming one of the colours is missing (i would imagine it would be cyan or yellow) then run some head cleans from your printer software or the printer itself.

I have a Cannon MP560 all in one printer and I want to connect it to my laptop as well as my desktop. I have sky broadband and wondered if it can be connected via that.


I really don't see why you can't (I hate the "can't word - it means won't! -- like nails on a chalk board!)
Ok - well, if you haven't tried it, call tech support at the manufacturer of the printer or perhaps even sky network? and see if they can assist?
Best regards

The Canon is trying to connect to a wireless router or wireless access point which is connected to your computer network. Your Sprint 3g device is a wireless broadband device for Internet connection and cannot connect to the Canon using this device.
You need a wireless card that connects to the wireless router or wireless access point.
Otherwise you can connect to your printer using a printer cable.

In this situation your wireless printer might require a power reset before you print each document. Though the printing activity will take place efficiently you will have to physically go and power the printer to enable it to print. This problem might require you to reload the firmware of the router and set the wireless printer to manual IP address in order to make it work seamlessly no matter how many documents you have to print. get more information for Wireless Printer Problems .
