Re: wireless printing

The MP830 does not include the ability to do Wireless Network printing. You can however, connect this printer to one of your Windows or Mac PCs and share it on the network, which is wireless, therefore accomplishing the same thing.

1) Install the Drivers and Software that came with your Printer.
2) Go to the Control Panel > Printers & Faxes
3) Right-click your printer and click "Sharing"
4) Choose Share this Printer, and give it a name.
5) You can then on, use the Add Printer Wizard on any other Windows PC and install it by searching for network printers.

Step 1 is the same for Mac
2) Go to System Preferences > Sharing
3) Check the box for Printer Sharing
4) Any Mac on the network can see it!!
5) Added treat: go to to install bonjour for Windows, using this software you can print using any Mac printer on any PC

Wireless printing

Did you try reinstalling your printer software and drivers? Go into control panel ->printers and delete the old one first, then reinstall everything from the disks that came with the printer.

Can't print wireless from my new canon mx860 printer. Prints fine wired.

I believe you need to reconfigure the wireless settings on the printer. You need to get the same exact wireless settings on your router.

Is it possible to set up the printer for wireless printing?

This is not a wireless printer, however, you can create a wireless envirnoment by using a wireless router or a wireless printer server router. Linksys and others carry the routers for around $40.00. You would hook the printer directly to that router and the router would have an IP address that all wireless devices could see.

Good Luck.

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 printing

  • I presume that the printer is not directly connected to the PC. Now if the Printer is connected to the USB port on the router, you have to check if the router detects it and the printer server is online. Also since u changed the router, you will have to change the settings in your PC to reflect the IP address of the printer server (the router.)
  • If the MP830 is connected wirelessly to the router, make sure that the IP address of the printer is in the same subnet as your laptop. (Check the configuration settings, they can be configured using a browser by pointing it to the IP address of your printer)
