Question about Canon PIXMA MP830 All-In-One InkJet Printer
Can I connect to the usb port of the FIOS Actiontec printer?

I had the same problem. I entered the info manually and it works. You could follow the instructions on how to do it manually in the e-manual (on the CD).
To get the IP, subnet mask, and default gateway: open a command prompt from windows. At the command prompt, type "ipconfig" without the quotes. Write down the IP address, subnet mask, and default gateway.
For the IP, for example, if what you have from the step above is 192.168.0.100, add 10 (so that you wont have repeated IPs by auto DHCP from the router. I am assuming you have no more than 5 machines on your network.) to the last number to have 192.168.0.110 to enter manually into the printer. Use the same subnet mask and default gateway.
Hope it helps.

Here is a link to the support page for your printer. I read through the documentation for the MP600 and did not find anything saying you could print through the network. What I mean is there is not a ethernet port or a wireless interface to connect your printer to your network. There is a wireless feature where you can beam photos from your phone. I think you may be confusing this with being able to print from your computer wirelessley.

Purchase a PCMCIA parallel port adapter. the USB to parallel adapters are a pain to set up and are flakey at best. The PC card adapter provides a native parallel port to laptops without one, and works perfectly in ALL cases, even with the scanner cartridge. In Vista, the printer may then be manually installed from its list of printers, and set to use the new LPT port.

Hi Daniel, I just had a quick look and other people here have posted problems regarding error code 300 on the MX850. Take a look here when you get a minute to see if any of the solutions posted help you out at all. It's a long shot as this link is for Apple users but it might point you in a direction you hadn't yet tried. All the best.

Testimonial: "Very helpful, thanks - especially the link to the Apple support forums. Deleting and re-adding the printer in Printer Setup Utility has solved it..."
