  1. Can't connect my Cannon Pixma MG6650 to Router.

    I am trying to get my Cannon Pixma to print using my Wireless Network.
    My Router is a Netgear N300. I am running Win Ten Pro 64. The Printer works other than the Wireless part.

    I cant Print or Scan from the Printer to the PC via my Router. The printer wont install if I try it on the Wireless LAN Connection method. It will not show on the Printers on Network list on the Cannon Software. It will install via a Printer cable but I still can't get to work as Wireless. I only go it on Sat.

    Help Please!

    First, wire the printer to the system and reinstall the software.

    Once you get that running (ie print, scan, copy) using both the front panel options and the PC software,
    then disconnect and configure the printer to use the WiFi connection.

    Using the front panel controls for scanning is 'interesting' and sometimes difficult. In such cases, just use the PC SCAN software and everything will be fine.

    No it won't.
    I think I will take it back and see if I can get my money back on Sat.
