Question about Canon PIXMA MP610 InkJet Printer
I have a Dell Dimension 4400 running Windows XP Pro. It came only with USB1.0 ports. I have installed a PCI card with four USB2.0 ports. Will these ports support connectivity for a Pixma MP610 multifunction unit? Somewhere recently I read that USB2.0 ports other than what comes on a new PC will not support the Pixma MP610. This was written by a MP610 purchaser who discovered the problem. I haven't been able to find the message again..
Somebody might have been confused or perhaps there is was a different issue as well. USB 2.0 is backward compatible. The printer should work on either, but with decreased performance on the USB 1.0. The USB 2.0 PCI card is a true USB upgrade no matter your original config. Make sure your PC otherwise meets the min requirements for the printer.

Tips for a great answer:
If you have a wireless router with a wireless network then -
Configure the IP address your wireless
printer, (this is done through the printer's menu settings) make sure it
matches the IP address range on your wireless network, it maybe 192.168.1.***
then configure the wireless printer with a fixed IP address with the same IP
address range but at a higher address eg. 192.168.1.10 so it does not clash
with any other IP addresses.
Next install the printer driver normally.
Then configure the printer Properties.
Click Start - Printers and faxes - right click on the your printer - click Properties - Port tab - click Add Port - Standard TCP/IP port -
Port Name eg. 192.168.1.10
Printer name eg Network printer
Then do a TEST print if it does not work then the IP address is probably incorrect.
