How to Connect Canon Printer to WiFi

Connecting a Canon printer to WiFi allows you to print wirelessly from your computer or mobile device without the need for cables. It also enables access to additional wireless features such as scanning and copying. Here’s how to do it:

  1. Make sure your printer is turned on and in range of your WiFi network.
  2. Locate the WiFi icon on your printer’s control panel and select it.
  3. Choose your WiFi network from the list of available networks and enter the password when prompted.
  4. If your printer does not have a control panel or the WiFi icon is not displayed, you may need to use the Canon PRINT app to connect to WiFi. To do this, download the app from the App Store (for iOS devices) or the Google Play Store (for Android devices).
  5. Open the Canon PRINT app and tap “Add Printer.”
  6. Follow the on-screen instructions to connect your printer to WiFi. You’ll be prompted to select your WiFi network and enter the password.
  7. Once your printer is connected to WiFi, you’ll need to install any necessary drivers or software on your computer. You can usually find these on the Canon website or on the disc that came with your printer.
  8. After installing the necessary drivers, you’ll need to add your printer to your computer’s list of available printers. To do this, go to the Start menu and select “Control Panel.” From there, click “Hardware and Sound” and then “Devices and Printers.” Finally, click “Add a Printer” and follow the on-screen instructions to complete the setup process.
  9. Once your printer is set up to print wirelessly, you should be able to print documents and photos from your computer or mobile device without the need for cables.

In addition to printing wirelessly, many Canon printers also support other wireless features, such as scanning and copying. To access these features, you may need to install additional software or use the Canon PRINT app.
