Question about Computers & Internet
I have a new Dell computer that has windows Vista OS and it isn't compatible with Canon Pixma IP 90 printer. I can't install the printer
Is it the Pixma 90, or the Pixma 90v? I believe there is a difference, but I could be wrong.
If you go to this link, and select Vista as your OS (operating system) you should be able to download the correct driver that you need for your printer. Make sure not to select the 64 bit version!
Once downloaded, make sure you unpack it and keep in mind where it saved it to in your computer. Then, right-click your my computer. select properties, then on the left hand side of the window select 'device manager'
You should be able to quickly see a yellow question mark next to your printer on this list. If not, I would think it should be located under the 'Universal Serial Bus Controllers' section (USB) where you can update the driver manually.
To update a driver manually, right-click on the driver on your device manager, select update driver, and when prompted, do not search automatically for the correct driver (hence manually versus automatically). Select 'I will install the device myself' and navigate through the explorer menu to the location of your recently downloaded and unpackaged driver. It should now install and complete successfully. It may prompt you once that the device driver is not signed by Microsoft, but since we are sure of the location that we downloaded it from, this is not a concern.
Once you've done all that (Phew!) You may still need to go to your Printers & Faxes menu and set-up your printer and make it your default printing device. Piece of cake after all of that driver stuff right?
If you still have any questions or problems after that, post again and let us know! Hope that helps.

If you have a wireless router with a wireless network then -
Configure the IP address your wireless
printer, (this is done through the printer's menu settings) make sure it
matches the IP address range on your wireless network, it maybe 192.168.1.***
then configure the wireless printer with a fixed IP address with the same IP
address range but at a higher address eg. 192.168.1.10 so it does not clash
with any other IP addresses.
Next install the printer driver normally.
Then configure the printer Properties.
Click Start - Printers and faxes - right click on the your printer - click Properties - Port tab - click Add Port - Standard TCP/IP port -
Port Name eg. 192.168.1.10
Printer name eg Network printer
Then do a TEST print if it does not work then the IP address is probably incorrect.
