Hi.

The WPS button wifi auto configuration does not always work, in fact it fails most of the time, depending to router and network configuration.

Before connecting the printer , ensure that configuration Mac, router and network is complete, and that the Mac is connected to the network.

Before connecting the printer ensure that you have the printer software, if you do not have the software, download if from Canon website.

Install the printer as suggested in the document below. You will need to follow the steps in software setup. At a point you need to connect the printer to Mac using an Ethernet cable. Then enter access point, remove cable and configure printer wirelessly.



Here configuration instructions.

Here config. for additional computer (if required).

Wps button


The front of your Actiontec modem has a button and light for Wi-Fi Protected Setup (WPS). If that button was pressed or the WPS process was started, that button may light up or blink.

I cannot install my new pixma mx340 setup driver on mac os x 10.6.6. Get Installation failure message. Was successfull installing on 10.4


With 10.6, you just need to plug in the printer and the Mac will download the right drivers automatically.
If that fails, download and install the Canon drivers manually from here: http://support.apple.com/kb/DL899

Make sure that these is how the installation went through(provided that the installer is already downloaded to your computer:
  1. Double-click the file to mount the Disk Image.
  2. Double-click the mounted Disk Image.
  3. Double-click the .pkg file in the folder. Installation starts automatically.

Moving forward when adding a printer and the Ok button is grayed-out is that there are no other pop-out window or tick box that hasn't been ticked yet.

Failed Wireless Setup/could not create new port


Check this link for wireless setup:

http://downloads.canon.com/MP620/Intro_to_MP620_Setup_Guide.htm

There are Vista 64 drivers on the CD that came with the printer, but if you want to download, you should download the network drivers if you are installing the printer to work on a wireless local area network (LAN).
