Well, I seen your message on the issue. She needs to use USB cable 2.0 version to connect the Printer to the Computer. Please buy USB 2.0 version type cable. You can purchase it at any store. I recommend you to purchase in any brand store.

Can i hook up my printer to my wireless router and if i can how do i tell it to print when i need it to print

The iP6310D can't connect to the wireless router directly. It has a USB port and an optional blue-tooth receiver.
If you connect the printer to one computer, you may be able to share it using that computer as a server. Install the printer software on all of the machines. For the software, see . For Windows 7 and 8, if you set up a Homegroup, enable sharing for the printer on the computer that it is directly connected to. Then use Add a Printer command from the Devices and Printers Control Panel option to locate networked printers. For other OS options, you'll need to make sure that the computers are in the same workgroup. (See the Network set-up information.) Then add a network printer.
If your wireless router has a USB port, you may be able to connect the printer to the router. Again install the printer software on each computer. Then use the router's software to add a printer on the computer. (For Linksys routers, that is the Cisco Connect software. Some routers may not offer this software for all OS's or for all printers.)

A similar option is a print server connected to the USB port of the printer. You will need to check the specifications for each one. There are some that only work on select printers.
Once the software (the printer driver and then the network software/shared printer is set up), then any program should be able to print following the File > Print command.
Please add a comment with your OS and/or router model, I'll try to walk you through setting up a shared printer or a USB connection on the router.

(Note: I have a USB printer connected and a wired network printer to a Cisco router. My only issue is that I get a printer error with every print job. The printers print the documents anyway. The error is due to the printers not responding to the software as fast as if it were a direct connection.)

It is important to follow the steps as outlined on the CD. Generally, you plug in the USB cable when prompted to do so. Make sure you have followed all the steps so that XP can find your MP240.

Canon iP6310D does not print text in black

1 reason for this may be that there is no ink in the cartridge
2)the inkhole is blocked

You may need to do a clean and nozzle check till the ink runs and it prints the check pattern using black. or replace the cartridge

Can i use pg-40 cartridge in my printer

No, you can't. I have the same printer and tried to save a buck at Costco, where they sell a 41 and two 40's in bulk. However, the 40 wouldn't fit into the slot because the ridges are slightly different. Several online print websites list the 40 as being compatible, but it would fit on my iP6310D.
Take the 40 back and go somewhere that sells both the 41 and the 40.

Anyone who wants to buy 1 opened (but unused) and 1 unopened 40-ink cartridge, please email and I can either sell directly to you or put them on ebay. Thanks!

Canon iP6310D photo printer

You can do the following to check and remove your old drivers.

Assuming your using Windows, click on START, then Printers and Faxes.
In the new window click on File and then Server Properties.
From here select the Drivers tab and see what drivers are listed there and select any Lexmark ones and push the Remove button. Reboot.
You may want to disconnect your Canon printer and remove it's drivers also and then reinstall them fresh again and see how you go.

You could also try something like Driver Genuis - which is supposed to be able to remove old and unused drivers, but it's a paid product and i'm not sure how effective it is.

I would tend to agree with the Dell staff that it should matter if you have old drivers still on the system as it will only use the drivers/files that are required by your hardware.
I would also try the different USB ports on your Dell machine and possibly a different USB cable just in case.
