Scanner driver problems for MP810

I have just installed a ASUS WL500w wireless router to which my Canon MP810 plugs into via a usb port.
I can print from my PC and also print wirelesly from notebook.
My problem lies with the scanner.
It has stopped working.
If I try to open Navigator I get a mesage "the scanner driver supported by this software is not installed, install it and then retry."
I have installed the driver software several times.
I have even uninstalled all Canon software and drivers and done a fresh install but are still getting same message.
Your help is apreciated

    I seem to be getting the same issue. I can print via the bluetooth (belkin) but when I use the MP navigator to try and scan I get an error notice occurring. I have also reinstalled the drivers but without any success, anybody have an idea.

    I do have the same problem with my Asus WL500W and Canon MP730. It can print but cant scan. I think the main problem is the router.

If you do not have the software, you need to download the software from one of the following locations:

Official Canon Drivers and Software

After downloading is finished, unplug the USB and run the software that you downloaded.
The software installer will tell you when to connect USB.

Some Canon device may not be Vista compatible and cannot work on Vista.

Connect canon pixma printer to zyxel router

If the printer has wireless capability built in , no cables are necessary. Install the printer driver in the mac as a wireless connection. Connecting a printer to the router is pointless, unless you want to install the printer as a network printer, which would disable wireless.

Instead of using a usb cable, I want to print wirelessly from laptop or iPad to my Canon PIXMA MP810 Printer. I have a wireless router with spare ethernet plugs at rear. What are my alternatives ? for...

You could purchase a ethernet print server which will allow you to connect your printer to the router via ethernet cable. I recommend the TPLink TL-PS110U. I use this for one of the printers in my office.

Alternatively, you could purchase the TPLink
TL-WPS510U. This is a wireless print server. It will give you some freedom if you wish to locate your printer to somewhere other than beside your router.

I have a wire less network set up and want to use my lexmark x1270 so i can print wireless but cable is USB and do i need to get a cable to put into my router or??

You can't set it up wirelessly, persay. but you can use a special bluetooth adapter in the "pic bridge" slot on the front. I have seen them on e-bay from £5($8) to £12($17) or so.

Using D-link dp-300 Printer Canon ImargeClass MF4350d (Multifunction printer) Problem. I can not use scanner fanction. (no problem for printer) Without printer server, I able to use the scanner.


The problem you are having is pretty standard, the IP based printing works for most printers but the scanner require direct(or well faked, direct) connectivity with a USB port which most routers do not provide.

Several companies including Startech and Io Gear make Virtual USB devices which would resolve the issue.

How they work differs as instead of creating an IP printer, the usb device installs on an ip and then a driver you install on your PC(s) connect to the unit over the router and sets up a virtual USB port on your machine so you can re-install the printer as a local printer attached to what it thinks is a local USB port.

Doing this will allow you all functionality the printer offers but will slow down printing and scanning a bit

Hope this Helps,

Printing from my laptop

I would need more information to help you with this problem. Do you have the correct and up-to-date Canon drivers installed in your laptop? Is the Canon operating as a wireless unit, or is it connected to the computer via USB cable? If wireless, is the Canon setup to operate wirelessly? If on a USB cable, is the USB port properly configured? Is the USB cable plugged in at both ends? The easiest thing to try is to go You can find downloadable drivers, installation instructions, and other documentation, free. The Canon drivers use an INSTALLATION WIZARD program to guide you through the printer set-up process.

Wireless Printer Setup

For installing a wireless printer on Windows XP, wireless router is an essential device.

Follow the recommended steps mentioned on the installation CD of the router, and set-up a wireless network.

Since several computers or laptops will access the printer, it0 1is recommended to connect the wireless printer to the main computer through the USB port.

To begin the installation process on Windows XP, access the network setting in the Control Panel, and activate the file and printer sharing option in the LAN setting.

This will allow the operating system to recognize the availability of a wireless printer.

Now, click the Start button, go to Devices and Printers, select Add a Printer option.

Click the second option- Add a network, wireless or Bluetooth printer.

The computer will search for available printer and reflect it on the screen.

Click Finish; and the printer is ready to begin the printing process.
