Airport Express provides only a print server, not a networked usb hub so it can only print. I'm afraid you'll have to go back to wired for scanning.

Ethernet to USB Print Server for canon MP610 multifunction


Hi,
The MP610 is a GDI printer (which lacks intelligence to convert the page into dots on the page, and uses the Windows graphics engine instead). These printers are inherently hard to network. Often the only way is to share them via a PC. Below link has a driver that's claimed to work with Win 8. Alternatively, you could try the Win 7 driver on the Win 8 machine.

If you want to use a printserver, you need to make sure it supports your printer. For each printserver, go to the manufacturer's website. There should be a list of supported printers for each printserver. If the list is not there, or if your printer is not in the list, you must assume that it will not work.
Scanning will almost never work with any printserver

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,

Canon MX310 - I'm trying to connect this printer to my network. Currently, I have the printer connected to an Airport Express but when I try to print from my iMac, I get a message that the printer is...


Adkinsdave, keep in mind that often having someone remotely connect to your computer with you and perform this task is easier than trying to walk you through steps and potentially missing a step. With that being said, the Airport Express was meant to make setting up a WiFi network in your own home a breeze.
We need to first determine if your Canon PIXMA MX310 has a Mac driver. According to the Downloads page at Canon.com, there are several Mac drivers available for OS X, 10.5 and 10.6: usa.canon.com - simply choose your OS on the pulldown from that website. Once your computer has the driver it needs to communicate with the printer, you can use your Airport Express to connect to the printer.
Obviously, make sure the printer is turned on and once you go through the Airport Express connect guide you should be printing in no time.
Let us know if there are still issues.

Scan function won't work with Mac OS10.5.5 & Airport


I plugged the printer cable directly to my laptop instead of trying to scan using the airport wireless router. Plugging it in did the trick.

Canon mp610 scanning problem


The readme says that some USB hubs have an issue.

I was having problems and was connected via a hub. I removed the hub and connected the printer directly to the back of the PC and voila scanning is all good.

ALex.

Can't print to mac wirelessly (could do it a few days ago)


I had the same problem until recently. You have to install the drivers FROM THE CD that came with the printer, instead of selecting the drivers from the default list. Then, when selecting which printer driver to use (you'll have two options) choose Canon IJ and NOT Canon MX310 series. This is a problem with their MX310 driver, which is solved using a default/generic Canon InkJet (hence, the IJ) driver. Hope this helps!
P.S. This only works on Mac OS X. I have yet to figure out how to print wirelessly through Vista. Will keep you posted.
