Question about Canon PIXMA MP600 all-In-One InkJet Printer

Printing wirelessly to a Canon MP600

I'm confused about the Canon Pixma MP600 all-in-one printer. We just got a laptop, and I would like to print wirelessly. However, when I review the manual, I see comments about "blue-tooth enabled devices" and printing from mobile phones.

1) Do I need the bluetooth adapter to print from a computer, or only to print from mobile phones?
2) Will the bluetooth adapter work if my computer has another wireless system (I don't remember what it is, but I remember is wasn't bluetooth!)
3) Can I connect wirelessly to this printer without bluetooth? How?

Thanks!
Valerie

    The linksys wireless printer router for this printer is no good. I bought one and it worked at first. But once you try printing or scanning a photo the wireless router has like a wireless "jam" where it overloads and can't process the file and then basically stops working. You can reset it all you want but it will just no longer print. I'm sorry to say this but the only option from all other forums is to buy a new canon wireless printer, because this one doesn't even have a 10/100 jack to connect it to a wireless router to have it shared on a network. Also the bluetooth connectivity is only for printing photos from like cell phone in close proximity, not for using a laptop across the room either, no luck with that.

1) you need it to print from a laptop if you do not want to have to set up another computer, and mobile phone have bluetooth buit in
2) YES
3) set up the printer on another computer, and set it for sharing. Then make sure that you laptop is recognized in the network connections wizard, then on the laptop select add new printer and select the bullett that say a network printer. the rest is pretty easy, select browse for a printer or something, it is the first option, select it, say yes to all dialogue boxes, and let the computer do the rest.

A Bluetooth adapter inserted into the USB port of MP600 will work. You can print, but I have not find out can you redirect a scanned file tto the laptop. Probably not.

My new canon printer MP620B will not print from my wireless notebook unless connected by cable how do I make it print wireless?


I could not find much specific info regarding your MP620B. However, the MP600 series of printers support wireless "snap and print" from an infrared-enabled mobile camera phone (when held within 8" of the printer - max. jpg size 3 MB) or wireless printing from a compatible Bluetooth device with the optional USB Bluetooth adapter (max distance approx. 10 meters - may vary).

Please check your manual for more information.

yes vista, is non friendly as old oem hardware, so you must have a vista ompatible hardware. the bluetooth only works well bellow 5m radio, you can use a wireless router with usb port for printers, and your problem, is less confusing, but choose a good hardware, or else u giveup the printer.

Here is a link to the support page for your printer. I read through the documentation for the MP600 and did not find anything saying you could print through the network. What I mean is there is not a ethernet port or a wireless interface to connect your printer to your network. There is a wireless feature where you can beam photos from your phone. I think you may be confusing this with being able to print from your computer wirelessley.
