Question about Canon PIXMA MX860 OFFICE AIO-2.5IN LCD 19.4X17.1X8.9IN All-In-One InkJet Printer

1 Answer

LAN computers don't show up in 'Scan to computer' menu

Computers on my LAN (a desktop and a laptop) don't show up in the 'Scan to computer' menu on the printer itself. I only see a 'Local (USB)' option.

The printer is connected wirelessly to my network. I want to be able to send documents from the printer to the computer, without having to sit behind the computer. Printing and communicating wirelessly from both the laptop and the desktop goes without problems.

What am I doing wrong?

Thank you very much for your help in advance!
Kind greetings,
Jeroen

    That was the solution!! Thank you very much for your help! It's a lot of software that you may or may not have to install with the printer! Looks like the manual could be a little more precize about what all the software is for!

Network cable connection not recognized


Make sure the LAN driver is installed and working.
The LAN cable maybe faulty, try another one.
If the LAN cable is a red one then it most likely a crossover LAN cable. This cable is used to connect two computers together without a LAN hub or router.

Is there any other computer connected to the network and able to go online.
If yes then check the wireless settings of the router.
If the laptop is the only 1 computer then you will need to connect the laptop to the router and open the router set up page and check the wireless settings.

Networking 2 computers


Yes you can make a simple Network between 2 PCs ....but ....you need what is called a "crossover ethernet cable" or "xover". A standard RJ45 ethernet cable WILL NOT work.

You also need to make sure both Pcs are in the same Workgroup and have unique computer names.... as is standard in Networking.
