    I have the same problem. I get the same error message when I try to connect via wi-fi. Look forward to getting this problem solved!

    I've connected the MP620 via a wireless connection with my wifi network. When logging in on my modem/router I can see the printers Mac-address. After this I can install the printer on my pc (connected to the modem with a LAN cable). Via this PC I can easily print to the wireless MP620.



    However if I want to install the printer as well on my wireless PC and notebook, I get the same error. It cannot fin the printer. SO:



    PC - cable - MODEM/ROUTER - wifi - PRINTER = works

    PC - wifi - MODEM/ROUTER - wifi - PRINTER = doesn't work!



    Anyone an idea?

I realize that you posted this question over a month ago...but I'll still give you your answer in case anyone else is also experiencing this.
All you need to do is enter in the correct password...the one you gave your router. Which I realize was probably a while back, and you didn't write it down (tisk tisk), so here's how you find out what you typed, way back when.
open up your internet browser (Internet Explorer, Firefox, Safari, ect...). Now in the search bar type in your routers IP address.
mine is: 192.168.2.1
yours might be the same or might be something similar...like: 192.168.1.1
only type that, and include the dots...no www junk.
once you typed it in, hit enter.
and now you should be in your router...then steps hold true for all routers I believe (mines a belkin).
it will ask for a password, most people simply leave theirs the default password, my password was nothing....literally, I just left it blank and clicked 'next'. yours might be 'admin'...a google search should help you find your routers default password.
Ounce you have the routers password, you have access to change a lot of the routers features...including finding out that pesky passphrase that your in search of.

your welcome.
I accept cash & credit. I'll send you the bill. ;)

I have a Pixma MP620 connected to Win7, but have wireless access and also use MacBook. Cannot print wirelessly to printer from Mac..........have a solution?


Make sure you have the drivers installed - while there are possibly compatible drivers that came with your MacBook, it may not work properly out of the box.

Download them from http://www.usa.canon.com/cusa/support/consumer/printers_multifunction/pixma_mp_series/pixma_mp620#DriversAndSoftware. Make sure you choose "MP Drivers for Network". Do not install yet, but open the package file.

The next step requires a USB cable. You need to connect the MacBook to the printer and only then start to install the drivers by clicking the Setup icon.

You should do the 'Easy Install', if you get asked for it. When the installer asks to restart the machine, do so.

Once the machine restarts, you'll get a window for the 'Canon IJ Network Tool'. Click for 'Lan Connection', and then OK.

You'll want to click the 'Register Printer' button next. You may get a 'Cancel Setup' screen, just cancel that out.

The next part requires waiting. After a bit - really, it was different for all three computers, so I can't say how long - you'll get an 'Add Printer' screen. Choose 'Canon MP620 series', and click add.

On the Canon iJ Network Scanner Selector screen, set the pulldown for "Canon MP620 series Network', and then click the MAC Address (there should be only one) and cick 'Apply'. Make sure the check mark is displayed, then click exit.

That should register your laptop as allowed with your printer. Turn off the printer, disconnect the USB cable, turn the printer back on and you should be able to use it.

Printer not detected with Wrt54g2


Fixed it. I saw another post by someone, who had detailed step-by-step the setup proceedure with regrds to wireless. First, make sure printer is connected via USB to PC and everything works.

Next on printer, select settings, then device settings and Reset all network settings.

Next, run the CD-rom, select region, and then select Easy install when main menu appears.

Nest select only the most essential drivers, MP drivers and the Canon IJ Network tool. Select & reinstall the MP driver (main driver) and Canon IJ network solution tool.

Once they are installed. Run the Network IJ tool program, follow the setup to activate wireless.

This is how my MP620 finally worked.

Hope this makes sense.

I'm trying to connect to my Canon MP620, wirelessly. All my other computers have been hooked up, catch is I had the disc. Windows automatically installed everything when I hooked it up with the USB cord...


If I understand you correctly, you have lost the software?
I'd recommend getting the software for MP620 from Canon. Select the operating system in the drop down box to the right of the text "Please select your operating system to view available drivers and software" on the page to reveal the software downloads relevant for your operating system.
Then run the network install using the downloaded and installed software on one of the computers. You have to connect the printer using the USB cable once to setup network access to the printer. After that, all computers should be able to see the printer through the network. The software should be installed on all computers that should use the printer.
I have set up wireless connection to the very similar Canon MP600R before, with success.

Printer sends me to print to file instead of printing.I am using canon PIXMA MP620 all-in-one wireless printer. I have gone through the troubleshooting and still no result. Linda


First of all, make sure it is the default printer. Now, in a word or exel or similar programs, select the print option, near the properties button you will see ¨print to file¨, click the down arrow and select ¨Canon PIXMA MP620.... or similar option and print.

Canon MP620 Wireless All-In-One can't print to it


Hi
I had exactly the same problem. Here is how I solved it.

I deleted all the previously installed items (although this might not actually be necessary). Then I re-installed using the 'Easy Instal' option from the CD.

The CRUCIAL part is this: - after you have tested your connection to the printer - and it is all fine - another box should appear with a MAC address for the Scan Twain. Highlight the string of numbers and click APPLY.

THEN THE MOST IMPORTANT BIT - look at page 54 in the set-up guide. And follow the instructions which are:

When the printer utility opens click ADD - then go to 'more printers' select the MP620 with the string of numbers after it. This is the one you want NOT the one that appears automatically when you complete the installation.

make this printer your default and away you go! That should work as it has for me and i have been pulling my hair out on this for about 3 weeks!
