Part 1. Ready to setup Canon Wireless Printer

  • Install the printer and enable it: If you want an Ethernet connection for your printer to access the Internet, install the router with Ethernet cable.

  • Make sure your computer is on the same network as the printer: In order for a wireless printer to receive commands from a computer, both the computer and the printer must be connected to the same Wi-Fi network.
  • If your printer is connected to a different Wi-Fi network than your computer, replace your computer’s Wi-Fi network before proceeding.
