    Same problem. Mac Pro laptop wireless connection to AirPort. Printer is network connected to AirPort.

    Interestingly, I can print the test page (using the canon utilities) through the wireless connection AND I can scan into PhotoShop using the wireless connection. But, as of yet I cannot print from an application .

    I have the exact same message when I try to print from an application. I am running a Canon MP180 through a USB port into my MacBook. I can scan using MP Navigator and all diagnostic tests of the printer come out clean.

I had this problem with a Canon IP5200R connecting to a Mac Book Pro running Leopard. I had setup the printer as per instructions using the setup utility, could print a test page using the utils but could not print from an app.

My solution was to delete the printer (System Prefs > Print & Fax) listed in the system preferences and then re-add by clicking the '+' in the pref panel, then selecting 'More Printers' from the popup window. If you have the printer connected to the network correctly it should show up and you can simply re-add it. My printing now works correctly.

After working for 2 days it will not allow us to connect to the internet then after i unplug the power then hook back up it works


In order to set wireless printer in Windows 7-based PC, you need to position it in a central location away from metal objects. Now, find out if it a Bluetooth or Wi-Fi as most new printers are equipped with either Bluetooth or Wi-Fi technologies. After, that enables the sharing of your printers by informing computer’s operating system about adding printer to its network. Also, install drivers for the same. Hence, in this way you can set up wireless printer on Windows 7-based system. You can also set up other computer systems in the network for using wireless printer get more information for Set Up Wireless Printer on Windows 7 .

Need help connecting old printer


hi, please look at the following link:

http://www.epson.com/cgi-bin/Store/support/supDetail.jsp?oid=14363&prodoid=10170&BV_UseBVCookie=yes&infoType=Downloads&platform=Windows&x=9&y=9

If you're using Vista or Win 7 it should already have the driver ready so just a case of adding the printer, do not plug it in YET, just goto Add printer, once the driver installed, plug in the printer.

When i try to print wirelessly from my laptop it says its not communicating with printer. I have downloaded a d link wireless router to computer and i don't know why it isn't working?


Hi nataliejm3,

Assuming that you already added the printerto your desktop, you will need to add the MAC address of the printer to your router.

Hope this helps and good luck.

Adding a printer


Unfortunately this model of router has no support for directly connecting anything other than a printer that already supports Ethernet.

Since that's not the case with most consumer printers you will need to buy a "Print Server" These are made by all the main manufacturers, and come with a collection of interfaces, USB / Parallel of the printer, and Ethernet or WiFi of the network side.

They all pretty much do the same thing so go for one that meets your needs.

If my advices was at least helpful, please vote for me!
