    • Confirm that the router is identified on the bottom of the Home screen, and that the antenna icon has no red ×.

Steps on the computer

  1. From [System Preferences], open [Printers & Scanners] or [Print & Scan].

  2. Click [+] below the list.

  3. Choose [Canon SELPHY CP1500].

  4. Click [Add].

  5. Access the printing dialog box.

    • Start the photo software, select images to print, and access the printing dialog box.

    • As the destination printer, choose [Canon SELPHY CP1500].

  6. Choose printing options.

    • Choose a paper size corresponding to the size of paper and ink cassettes in the printer. Also choose bordered or borderless printing as an option with the listed paper sizes.

    • Choose the printing orientation and number of copies, as desired.

      Paper Size Description Paper Size
      L Size 89×119 mm
      P Size Postcard
      C Size 54×86 mm
  7. Print.

    • Click [Print] to print.

    • To print other images, repeat steps 7–9.

 Authentication is required in order to display the printer's webpage from printer settings screens in macOS. Log in by entering ADMIN as the name, and as the password, enter the MAC address without colons (for example, AA:BB:CC:DD:EE:FF -> AABBCCDDEEFF).

You can check the MAC address in [Wi-Fi settings] ► [Confirm Settings] ► [MAC Address].

If you have changed the password and no longer remember it, use [Reset Settings] in [Wi-Fi settings] or [Reset all to default] in [Setup] on the printer to restore the default password.
