The WPS button would not be on the Canon Pixma printer. It will be on the router (or wireless access point) if your router can search for devices to be connected to the wifi network. (Not all routers do this.) If you add a comment with the make/model of your router, I may be able to tell you where the WPS button is. (Usually it will be on the back of the router but the exact location will vary depending on the model.)

It's much easier to use the standard setup to connect the printer to the router. When you choose that option, you will see a list of identified networks (if they are set up to broadcast). Then you select the network and enter the network password. (This should be set up when you set up the wireless network. Note: a default password is set on most routers; this should be changed during the initial set up. I prefer to use a wired network connection to enable the wireless network and set the password.)

I hope this helps. Please add a comment with more information about your network for additional support.

Not all routers have such a button.
Follow the instructions that came with the printer to "manually" select your wireless network, and to enter the password for your network.

Can i use wps button to connect my printer to my network?


According to the Canon website, yes, the 495 is wireless capable. I have a Pixma MG5300 and had no trouble at all connecting to my network with WPS. The installation instructions were a bit unclear but I just pushed the WPS button on my router right after going through the steps to make the wireless indicator on the control panel blink. Works great.

Your router should support WPS. It must have a button that has two curved arrows one directed upward (the right one) , the other downward (the left one)
You are supposed to check the option and press the button on the router.
If you do not use WPS, your network should have a key (password, passphrase) that you enter when you connect the first time. Check the configuration of your network.
