How to perform the wired LAN setup (Windows)


Before Configuring Wired Settings

Make sure that the computer and router are connected.

After confirming the connection, perform the following instructions to add (connect) the printer to the network.

(A) Internet
(B) Router, etc.

- Notes on Wired Connection
  • The configuration, router functions, setup procedures and security settings of the network device vary depending on your system environment. For details, refer to your device's instruction manual or contact its manufacturer.
  • In an office setup, consult your network administrator.
  • If you connect to a network that is not protected with security measures, there is a risk of disclosing data such as your personal information to a third party.

Software Installation

To use the printer by connecting it to a computer, software including the drivers needs to be copied (installed) to the computer's hard disk. The installation process takes about 20 minutes. (The installation time varies depending on the computer environment or the number of application software to be installed.)
  • Quit all running applications before installation.
  • Log on as the administrator (or a member of the Administrators group).
  • If the firewall function of your security software is turned on, a warning message may appear that Canon software is attempting to access the network. If such a warning message appears, set the security software to always allow access.
