Hi lesstravelro...
No, the printer does not connect to the ethernet port.

Before you hook your printer to your laptop besure to run any softwear that came with the printer.
I would also recommend that you go to the Manufacturer's website for updated drivers for your printer.
Your printer will have a printer port or usb port on the side/back of the printer to plug the printer cable into the printer.
You will plug the other end of the printer cable into a usb port on your laptop.
Please take time to rate me thumbs up

Can we use MF6550 for wireless network?

If you use a wireless USB print server like this . Keep in mind that you may not get all functions such as scanning to work but it will allow for printing for sure. If the scanning works consider it a bonus.

Yes you need to setup the printer as a shared printer using the printer driver CD.
Your shared printer and computer would need to be on your LAN and connected to a wireless router. The laptop will connect to the shares printer via the wireless router and LAN cable to the computer with the shared printer.
Please click on this link and follow my instructions to setup the shared printer.

How can I install the mp470 printer onto my laptop without the installation cd? It has been lost and cannot be located but I need a printer!

Try this!

Turn on your laptop and let it finish loading the desk top. Then turn on your printer (but dont connect it to your laptop yet). After the printer has powered up, connect it to your laptop. Watch the laptop screen on the lower right hand side to see if it acknowledges the printer now connected and automatically searches for the necessary drivers. If it does, then follow the prompts and it will tell you when its finished and the printer is ready to use.

If you connect the printer and the pc does not acknowledge that it has been connected, then you will need to download the software to run the printer from Canon's website. Just go there and enter your printer model and download the software for free.

Make sure you install the software without the printer connected to your pc. Connect the printer afterwards for best results.

Connection to laptop

Most printers are connected to laptops via the USB ports. If the printer is supposed to be wireless, then you may have to connect the laptop via the USB port so you can activate the wireless port.
