Question about Canon PIXMA MP180 All-In-One InkJet Printer

1 Answer

Canon MP180 We have a Canon Pixma MP180 and have just purchased a new computer with Vista OS..the computer doesn't recognise the printer at all. I've tried all the USB ports and its the same for each. No one seems to be able to help not even Canon. We had a similar problem with our lexmark but their techs sent us a patch and now we're having no problems.

Re: Canon MP180

Go to the part of the program that deals with compatibility of programs. I never liked vista so I never installed it. anyway in the compatibility box choose windows xp and run it. worse comes to worse go to www dot downloads dot com and download the drivers for your printer FOR vista.

I have a canon mp180 and I want to set it up wirelessly do I need to purchase new software to do so or is there a way to do it without

It is notpossible to connect this printer wirelessly to your wireless network because it only has an USBconnection to a computer, unless you attach this printer to a print server andthen to a wireless router.
Alternatively you can set up this printer as a Shared printer on a computer onyour 10baseT LAN network. Other computers on your network can then printer tothis printer provided the computer with the printer is switched on (booted up).
