1. Connect the printer with a USB cable.

2. Turn on the printer.

3. Turn on the Mac.

4. Place the Setup Software & User's Guide CD-ROM in the CD-ROM drive.

5. Double-click the Mac OS X folder, then double-click the Printer Driver folder.

6. Double-click PIXMA iP4000R xxx.pkg. (xxx represents a number.)

11. Enter the administrator's name and password, and click 'OK'.

Note:

If you have forgotten the administrator name and/or password, click and follow the instructions in Mac Help.

12. A message asking for your confirmation to restart your Mac appears on the screen. Read the message, then click 'Continue Installation'. Software installation will start.

13. Click 'Restart'. When the computer restarts, BJ Network Tool will start up. If it does not start automatically, select 'Library' - 'Printers' - 'Canon' - 'BJ Printer' - 'Utilities' - 'BJ Network Tool'.

14. Select 'Setup' from the pop-up menu and 'iP4000R' in Printer, then click 'OK'.

If the The printer could not be detected message is displayed, check that your printer is connected with a USB cable and turned on, then click 'Update'.

15. Select 'Wireless LAN' and click 'OK'.

Note:

If the printer's network settings have been set before, the Printer Network Setup dialog box is displayed. For details, see " The Printer Network Setup dialog box is displayed during setup ".

16. Setup automatically detects your access point.

Important:

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.

An access point is detected automatically and setup proceeds to the next step when:

  • Setup detects an access point with the same network name (SSID) as the access point currently connected to your computer (when using AirPort Admin Utility version 3.1 or later), and the access point is not using encryption.
    -- or --
  • Setup did not detect an access point with the same network name (SSID) as the access point currently connected to your computer (or your computer is currently not connected to an access point in the first place), but a single access point without encryption was detected.

If the detected access point is using encryption:

When setup detects an access point with the same network name (SSID) as the access point currently connected to your computer, and the access point is using encryption (Password (WEP key) or WPA), the Access Points dialog box is displayed with the access point highlighted in the list.

Enter the network key (Password (WEP key) or WPA key) set to the access point and click 'Connect'.

If multiple access points were detected:

If setup did not detect an access point with the same network name (SSID) as the access point currently connected to your computer (or your computer is currently not connected to an access point in the first place), and two or more access points were detected, the Access Points dialog box is displayed.

Select your target access point and click 'Connect'.

If WEP or WPA is displayed in the Encryption column, a network key (Password (WEP key) or WPA key) is set to your access point. Enter the network key (Password (WEP key) or WPA key) set to the access point and click 'Connect'.

Important:

You cannot connect to an access point using WPA Enterprise or an access point using WPA Personal with type of dynamic encryption set to AES. See " The Access Points dialog box is displayed during setup ".

Notes:

  • If the Encryption column is blank, the access point is not encrypted. For details, see " The Access Points dialog box is displayed during setup ".
  • To confirm the password (WEP key) or the WPA key when using AirPort Base Station, use the AirPort Admin Utility. For details, refer to its online help.
  • For details on the access point's network name (SSID) and network key (WEP key or WPA key) setting, refer to the manual provided with the access point.

If no access points were detected, or your target access point is not displayed:

If the An access point could not be detected message appears, click 'OK' to display the Access Points dialog box. Click 'Update' to perform detection again. If your access point is still not listed, take the following measures.

  • Ensure that the access point is on and then click 'Update'.
  • Ensure that the printer is on and connected to your computer with a USB cable, then click 'Update'.
  • Move your printer closer to the access point and remove possible obstructions, then click 'Update'.
  • If all above fails, use manual searching. For details, see "The target access point is not detected, or you want to specify access point settings manually "
  • Using your access point's utility software, check if your access point is set to a closed network / stealth mode. If so, click 'Manual Setup' and enter the access point's network name (SSID) in Network (SSID).

17. Setup automatically detects the printer. The iP4000R connected with a USB cable is detected automatically.

If the printer was not detected, the Printer IP Address Setup dialog box appears. Click 'Connect' to retry detection. If your printer is still not detected, take the following measures.

  • Ensure that the printer is on and connected to your computer with a USB cable, then click 'Connect'.
  • Move your printer closer to the access point and remove possible obstructions, then click 'Connect'.
  • Ensure that the computer's connection with the access point is operational, then click 'Connect'.
  • If all above fails, use manual searching. To confirm the IP address, click 'Network Information' in the Set Printer IP Address dialog box. For details, see " The Set Printer IP Address / Printer IP Address Setup dialog box is displayed during setup ".

Note:

Be sure to re-connect the printer to your computer with a USB cable when changing the wireless LAN setting. Otherwise, your computer may fail to communicate with the printer.

18. Remove the USB cable and click 'OK'. The Printer Setup Utility (Print Center on Mac OS X v.10.2) will start up.

19. Click 'Add'.

20. Select 'CANON BJ Network' from the pop-up menu, select 'iP4000R' from the list of printers, and click 'Add'.

The alphanumeric string after the printer name is its MAC address.

21. Confirm that your printer is added to the list of printers.


22. Install applications. In the Setup Software & User's Guide CD-ROM, double-click 'CANON_BJ' and then double-click 'Application'. Double-click the installer in folder for each application you want to install.
