WPS (Wi-Fi Protected Setup) is a method that allows you to easily connect network devices to a secure wireless network. You do not need to know your SSID or password (network key) when using this method. If you have a Wireless access point or router that supports WPS, you can easily connect your Canon wireless printer to your home network.

After the printer has been connected to the network, you will need to install drivers and / or software if you want to use the printer with a computer.

Follow the on-screen instructions.

Please note that if the setup program does not find the printer, you may need to disable any firewall software that is running on your computer. If you do not want to disable any firewall software, you may need to add exceptions into the firewall. Refer to the documentation for your firewall software for more information, or contact the vendor of the firewall software.

You can also use the printer with mobile devices.
