Description

Learn about WPS (Wi-Fi Protected Setup™) and how to connect your PIXMA MX432 or MX439 printer to your network.

Solution

WPS allows you to easily connect your printer to a wireless network. With this connection method, you don't need know your SSID or password (network key). All you need is a router that supports WPS.


Before you begin

Check to see if your router has a WPS symbol on it (shown below). If you need help with this, refer to the router's manual.
Note  If your wireless router doesn't have a WPS symbol on it, you can use the standard setup method to connect.
