Wireless Setup - Mac OS X Computers

To be able to use the PIXMA TS series printer to print wirelessly on a Mac computer, the printer must first be connected to the Wireless Network and software drivers and applications installed on the computer.  The instructions /  screenshots  below show the setup program steps  when using the "Easy Wireless Connect" method to connect to the wireless network.

The setup process consists of 2 parts: 

1. Starting Easy Wireless Connect on the printer, and
2. Downloading and running the setup file to install the drivers and software.


1. Starting Easy wireless connect

Follow the procedure below to set up a printer.


  • If a device is connected to the Internet via a wireless router, and you then connect it to a printer in Wireless Direct mode, the existing connection between the device and wireless router will be disabled. In that case, the connection of the device may switch to a mobile data connection automatically depending on your device. When you connect to the Internet using a mobile data connection, charges may apply depending on your contract.
  1. If the Wireless lamp (A) on the printer is flashing, press the ON/Stop button (B).
