Wireless connection Setup

Wireless network connection not only enables multiple devices to use the same internet connection but also share files and other resources. Move devices such as tablets, laptops and iPods within the network area freely. Wireless network avoids messing up with wired cables. Taking a photograph and uploading it to social media is now simpler and can be done much quicker with wireless technology. Few common wireless setup such as WPS and standard connection methods are given below.

Wireless (Wi-Fi) Connection Setup

  • Once you choose a suitable location to place the wireless router, remove the obstructions that cause wireless interference and connect the router to the modem using a wired cable.
  • After connecting the Canon Pixma MG3122 printer to the router, turn on the modem, router, PC and printer. Refer to the manual or router documentation for the IP address of the router.
  • Use a password with strong characteristics to change the default administrator password for the router. Use the latest wireless encryption protocol.
  • Selecting a descriptive name for the SSID in the wireless network information section helps to identify the network easily. Change the wireless channel if required.
  • Use the driver software CD that came with the Canon printer or refer to the manual for the steps to download and install the driver on the Operating System.
  • Go to the Downloads folder on your computer, locate the driver file, run the file and follow the instructions that appear on the screen to complete the installation process.

WPS Connection Method

  • Check if the access point has a WPS push button available to set up the printer using this connection. If the push button is not available on the router, use the Standard Connection Method.
  • Once you verify if the network uses the WPA or WPA2 security protocol, power on the printer if it is turned off and press and hold the Wi-Fi button. The button is located on the front of the printer.
  • After the white power lamp flashes, release the Wi-Fi button and verify if the Wi-Fi button starts to flash blue. Turn on the access point and press the WPS button after few minutes.
  • For further details on how to use the WPS button, refer to the access point manual. The blue Wi-Fi lamp on the printer starts to flash while searching for or connecting to the access point.
  • The white power lamp also starts to flash during the network connection. The blue and white lamps stop flashing once the Canon printer successfully connects to the wireless network.
