My new canon printer MP620B will not print from my wireless notebook unless connected by cable how do I make it print wireless?


I could not find much specific info regarding your MP620B. However, the MP600 series of printers support wireless "snap and print" from an infrared-enabled mobile camera phone (when held within 8" of the printer - max. jpg size 3 MB) or wireless printing from a compatible Bluetooth device with the optional USB Bluetooth adapter (max distance approx. 10 meters - may vary).

Please check your manual for more information.

Can I make this a wireless printer?


You can connect the printer via USB to a single PC or via Ethernet on a network. Though it doesn't have wireless capability built-in, you could also connect it to a wireless router or a print server for a shared wireless connection.
