The Canon wireless printer is set up according to specific protocols, but it’s not the same as a plug and print setup. This is the case for every printer, not just Canon A set of guidelines are required to follow in order to connect wireless printers. Strict adherence to the directions is essential, as any deviation from the procedure will result in an unsuccessful attempt, and the printers will not respond to instructions. As with all printers Canon offers access points (known as hubs or routers) with an automatic connection button, or” WPS” (WIFI Secured Setup). This is the connection point that allows the PIXMA the MG3540 printer, for example, to connect to networks without the required password.

Utilizing the WPS button will be the simplest method to connect, but in the event that it doesn’t provide one, a different option is available to allow connections to be made. Instructions are given in the following manner:

  1. If you are a Windows client take the CD that came with the printer and begin the installation. For Mac users Download the manuals and the software by clicking “selecting the product” on the PIXMA range page.
  2. The initial screen will appear After that, click Next and enter the password in order for the “helper tool” to install.
  3. After that, you can choose the option between USB and Wireless connection and click. The sequence won’t work when the printer isn’t running. If you have any problems, please contact us at canon mg3000 connect to wifi.
  4. It is in use to go. The next step is connecting to the network. Once the “cableless setup” is displayed on your screen press the printer’s WiFi button until the red alarm lamp flashes twice, and then release the button.
  5. At this point, at this point, the green (WIFI) lamp will be flashing rapidly and it is the power light that’s green on. Note that the network connection will be temporarily deactivated while setting up.
  6. Then, the “licensing agreement to Canon product’ and ‘please accept all installation wizard procedures’ should appear on the screen. Click.
  7. The printer’s model as well as its number (SSID) that the connection has will be displayed upon the monitor. Then, it will complete the setup of the connection. Run a test print.

It is the Canon wireless printer is programmed to be easy to work with and easy to use and user-friendly, as otherwise, nobody would be able to follow the instructions to connect to a wireless printer and instead install it.
