Question about Canon PIXMA MP620 All-In-One InkJet Printer

1 Answer

CANNOT GET WIFI TO WORK-ONLY WORKS ON USB

Got a new Mac Mini and with it a Canon MP 620 printer, the latter has a wi-fi capability. I set up both but must have made several mistakes in doing so, because I cannot get it to go wifi. I think one of my mistakes is setting the antenna for the MacMini to the router-I know, not so smart, but now it won't let me go back to square 1. I have done the install program for the printer at least 15 times and no success. I'll accept prayers but would love some suggestions. Dennis McHugh, Rockville, Maryland. Thanks

Click your Apple logo, go to System Preferences, Security, Firewall and change the setting to "Set access for specific services and applications." Now the printer should show up on the list and you can finish setup."

I cannot print from my iPad Air via wifi. I am connected to a TNT router and an HP inkjet 8600.


Good morning to you
When this happens to my mini pad and Canon printer. It is usually something that needs to be done for the printer. So go to settings on the printer and look for some new instructions there.
there may be new new software lying somewhere on the printer.
I don't know about HP printers but on my Canon I get instructions to follow.
If this isn't the problem, try restarting the printer.

Why is My HP printer not connecting to Wi-fi?


You sound as though you wish the printer to directly connect to the laptop via wi-fi. This is not usually the case in home networks. Most home networks use a wi-fi router to link all wi-fi components. This is because your laptop is not capable of handling the routing duties itself, nor is the printer (normally). The wi-fi router assigns the IP addresses that the devices use to communicate to the router and each other. That said, IF you ARE using a router, perhaps you are not entering the security code that the router needs to allow the device to attach to the network. If you are NOT using a router, then you still MIGHT be able to use the printer with the laptop if it has a "direct connect" capability. You would need to look at the printer documentation and instructions on how to set it up. Unfortunately, wi-fi isn't as simple as just turning it on an waiting for a connection to take place.

Got a canon pixma mg3250 wireless printer set it up as told put in cd rom seemed to have done everything i was supposed to but it wont print


A wifi printer needs to connect to your wifi network and it needs to be recognized by Windows.If your wifi network is already set up and working with other devices (tablets, smartphones, etc) , then you may be dealing with a simple security issue ( you may need to enter the proper passphrase, network key, etc.when you set up the printer) . If you do not have a wireless network already set up, then things get very complicated!!!

No data internet connection


Connecting to the Internet without a Wi-Fi data plan isn't a difficult process even for a novice at utilizing and joining wireless networks. Whether you are looking to join a public Wi-Fi hotspot network or a neighbor's private Wi-Fi network with their permission, get your computer online and browsing the Internet without the use of your own Wi-Fi data plan, saving money in the process. Note these steps to get you connected in just a few minutes.

Move to an area that offers free public Wi-Fi or to an area where you believe you are close enough to pick up a neighbor's Wi-Fi signal. In the latter case, check with your neighbor beforehand to ensure it is allowed that you utilize their Wi-Fi network. Using a private network without permission is illegal. Boot up your laptop. Allow Windows or the Mac operating system to load up fully on the laptop. Click on the wireless icon on your computer's desktop area. In Windows, you will find this icon on the right side of the bottom toolbar. It appears to be a computer monitor icon with small radio waves reaching out of it. Alternatively, on a Mac laptop click on the Wi-Fi icon on the top right toolbar in the desktop area. This icon will look like a set of radio waves extending upward. Look over the list that appears once you click on the wireless icon. This list will present all the wireless network options that are within the range of your laptop. Avoid any that present with a "lock" icon beside them, because these require passwords. If you are looking to join a password-protected network like one offered by a neighbor, request the password ahead of time. In the event of a public network at a local business, a password will not be required. Click on the network you intend to join. Input the appropriate password at this point, if joining a password-protected network. Also, choose the type of security encryption the private Wi-Fi network is using. Your computer will often have this auto-selected, but you may need to select either "WPA" or "WEP" security manually. Click "Enter" on your keyboard. If you do not have the necessary password or are unsure as to the security encryption type, either contact the network administer or click "Cancel" and join a public Wi-Fi network. Allow several moments for your computer to join the network. You will receive a notification on your Windows or Mac toolbar when it does. Launch your Internet browser of choice and begin utilizing the Internet without having to rely on your own Wi-Fi data plan

My Canon MG6120, which worked on wifi fine for months, now doesn't. It still works with USB connection, but that's not the point of a wifi printer! How can I fix this?


First check with another device that your wifi is working if it is try resetting up wifi on your printer.

If someone changed your wifi password you will need to enter the new password.
